There are tons of cameras in devices around us these days. There are used photo cameras, smartphones, tablets at my home gathering dust.
I wonder, what the easiest way could be to get a camera module from some device, connect it to my robot project with a soldering iron and make it work from the software point of view. I am planning to use something like Arduino, an STM32 platform, or probably Intel Edison.
May be some camera modules are easier to solder and program for a custom project? Or shouldn't I look this way and better find a camera module that is specially designed for custom projects?
