Camera Interface?

The page of this platform mentions "Camera Interface". But I don't see any shield or example with this. Is there a place with examples, or even a simple explanation that how this it works (Which cameras, which connections, etc)

Question relating to:

It's supported under the DISCO (aka DISCOVERY) series of boards (DISCO-F429ZI). You would need the STMF4 Camera Kit (STM32F4DIS-EXT) which the 429 Discovery board plugs into. The camera and LCD are included in that kit. https://developer.mbed.org/platforms/ST-Discovery-F429ZI/ http://www.st.com/en/evaluation-tools/stm32f4dis-ext.html

So does this mean that the Nucleo can not be used with a camera? I was thinking of interfacing with one of the cameras in the Hardware section of mbed...

Nucleo F429 is fine - it's just not plug-and-play from a physical standpoint with their existing camera kit. However if you feel up to wiring the Nucleo yourself, you could take a board with pins on it such as this one (https://developer.mbed.org/components/OV7670-Camera/) and wire it directly to the Nucleo. The other cameras typically use a ZIF cable which makes it difficult to prototype if you don't have the matching connector on your mpu.
