The cam-prog is a simple ESP32-Cam programmer that adds the missing USB programming capabilities to the wide spread EPS32 based camera micro controller. It implements also the boot mode selection overcoming the missing reset pin by cutting off power to the micro controller. This simplifies the programming of the cam module significantly since no manual reset and boot mode selection is needed when using with a common USB to serial interface. I made this board initially for myself since I have many projects with that camera in mind and I'm a lazy person but I hope you enjoy it as well.
Note: The pin headers need to be soldered so you need access to a soldering iron. The soldered option is currently not available do to a high work load.
Usage: The board should be detected as a common serial adapter. The CH340 drivers are usually included with the Arduino IDE. If you didn't work with the ESP32 before you also need to install the ESP32 Arduino integration.
Note: Since power is cut off the serial connection will cut off too. The Arduino serial terminal from the newest version however, reconnects automatically.
The long pin option can be used on a breadboard in a sandwich configuration. If you don't plan to use it with a breadboard the short pins are a better choice.
