Try and work it out:)

Pin headers are 0.1" apart, 5 on the bottom half of the one board so I'd guess that side is roughly 1" long, the other side is slightly shorter.

I'd say it's much smaller than the old V3 camera and it's around 1" to 1.5" wide, deep and maybe 2" tall.

Dj,

Is there a way to off set (as in extending ) the camera from the board so you cam place it in very tight locations. Could you even unsolder the lense from the board and extend with wires?

no, the lense has a hundred little connections:)

The board is quite small. It is approx. 3 cm x 2.5 cm x 2.5 cm

It that a special wire and connection between the V4 camera and EZB? Also does it matter how far away the camera can be mounted from the EZB?
#14  
The cables would have to be lengthened I guess but your wondering about lag due to wire resistance?

The ezb v4 camera wire can be extended. I don't think you'll have a resistance issue.

That camera in your robot is neat. Nice that it has a composit output

From what I'm reading the answer is no. Sounds like EZB V4 uses it's own protocol to stream the image back to ARC. However there may be ways to still use your camera with ARC but not directly through the V4 EZB. You still may be able to do it like we did with the V3 board and ARC. That way the image was sent back to your laptop via Bluetooth and ARC gathered the info through Windows as an installed device. I think I remember DJ saying we could still use our old cameras like that if needed but I may be wrong.

only the camera for sale on this website works with the ez-b v4, to my knowledge.

@Techno, I would say that any camera that is detected by Windows will work with the V4 since it will use ARC which already supports this. The V4 camera will only work with a V4 EZ-B since it plugs in directly to the EZ-B. This is for the PC version of ARC, the android and iOS versions will probably be different.

@nomad, you can use EZ-Bits to change the alignment of the camera. You will also (probably) be able to remove the camera from it's housing and make modifications to make it fit.

hi i dont have lot off space in the head.that why i need only the camera whithout housing.
#25  
I'm almost positive you can remove the EZ-B v4 camera's casing. I would be careful, though- working with a board that small is probably a fairly delicate procedure.

I wonder if the camera has an IR filter or if it can see the 850nm ir light.
