MinimOSD meets ArduCAM OSD Config

3689445393?profile=originalWe know you love DIYDrones... so here is the Valentine's gift from the Dev Team! Yeah, we love you back. LOL =)
Anyway, in fact the title of this post could also be "ArduCAM OSD Project meets Michael Oborne"!!!

This tool makes setting up the awesome MinimOSD board super easy!

You can also buy from your local distributor, like JDrones.

Now you can:

  • enable and disable panels;
  • positioning panels by drag or numeric input;
  • save and load layouts from file;
  • save and load layouts from board's EEPROM;
  • test video mode switching with adaptive layout;
  • update firmware;
  • update character set;
  • customize background picture;
  • set grid on/off;
  • test the layout with telemetry logs from Mission Planner;

If you want to know more about each feature, check this wiki page.

To upgrade your MinimOSD board just went to our download area and grab the "OSD Config" and "MinimOSD 1.9 Pack".
An update pack contains two files: the Firmware (.hex) and the CharSet (.mcm).

Pay attention to the right update order. The tutorials are linked below:

  1. "Update Firmware" (it adds support to upload the character set);
  2. "Update Charset".

I'm super happy with the progress of ArduCAM project.
Now with Michael aboard... the sky is the limit just the start!

Enjoy your new toy! ;) There is much more coming out.

Note: The battery remaining icon was temporarily disabled due it's a work in progress on APM code.

    @Johann: thanks for keeping your interest on the entire project! Now, I have plans on back to work on the camera control.

    Well, the short answer on the camera control part is "I have no idea of launch time of it".

    The long answer: We need a new board with more SRAM. And the worse part: I'm still fighting with Canon's brand new PS cams without support for PTP.
    It's almost killing my original idea. EOS cams still can be controlled, but they are heavy and they have no electric zooming.

    I'm thinking on two possibilities: dig into hacked PowerShots or change to HandyCams with LANC (in fact I already did tests on it). If the first option go fine... I will probably add LANC support anyway. Let's re-think it all.
