How to connect a camera to esp-32?

I know there is a esp32 cam module but I am interested in adding the components to my own pcb to save some space in my build. Can anyone point me to a wiring diagram where I can put the basic building blocks on a breadboard to get the camera to work with esp 32 for experimenting? I don’t need the sd card for example. Is that even feasible do you think? Many thanks

Hi,

They seem to just use the ESP32 cam board. What I am looking for is how to lay out something similar to the ESP32 cam board on a breadboard from the basic components. Do you have any references to something close to that? Many thanks for your help.

hi,
Are you trying to reverse engineer a ESP cam board, if so, do you have a circuit diagram for the ESP cam board, or perhaps a sketch you have made of the board.?

Yes, that is essentially what I am interested in doing. I don't have a circuit diagram, that is what I am looking for. Im just interested in the most basic functionality to stream video from the camera, I don't require the use of the SD card for example. Or if there is a tutorial or something from someone who has already done it. I haven't been able to find one, just wondered if someone else might know more of have some good references.
