Hey everyone, I would like to introduce you to our next generation cameras, the OpenMV-H7. First, apologies are due for not updating this project more frequently, but it's been really hard keeping track of everything from the website to forums and emails, while keeping the software/firmware releases on schedule.  Anyway, the new OpenMV-H7 is our latest and greatest camera, designed to support prototyping multiple sensors, including the OV7725, MT9V03x Global shutter sensor and the FLIR 1, 2 and 3 thermal sensors! 

Additionally, we're using a better uSD card socket, a high efficiency switching regulator (up to 1A), a low noise LDO for sensor analog supply and we've added a LiPo battery connector on board. The new OpenMV-H7 is still backward compatible with all the shields designed for OpenMV-F4 and OpenMV-F7. Software-wise, we now have neural network support, WiFi programming support, generally more stable firmware/software and a new UVC (webcam) firmware is coming soon.

The new OpenMV-H7 will be release in March, if you'd like to support OpenMV and pre-order the new OpenMV-H7 please back our Kickstarter:
