I have a USB webcam, and an LCD screen. Is there a way to connect one to the other, and make a digital viewfinder? Answered
I have a USB webcam, and a small LCD screen. Assuming I cut open the USB wire to power the camera, and do something similar with the LCD screen, is there a way to send the camera data to the LCD screen, without using a desktop as an intermediary?
In short, I'd like to make a very simple portable digital viewfinder. Given the relative cheapness of webcams (you can buy a half a dozen for less than $10 on google shopping, versus a single CMOS camera module for the same price), I wanted to see how easy such a thing would be to make. As far as I can tell, it'd just be separating the data output from the rest of the wires-- but having never worked with USB before, I'm not sure.
