6	INTRODUCTION:
7	
8	STMicroelectronics produces the STV0680B chip, which comes in two
9	types, -001 and -003. The -003 version allows the recording and downloading
10	of sound clips from the camera, and allows a flash attachment. Otherwise,
11	it uses the same commands as the -001 version. Both versions support a
12	variety of SDRAM sizes and sensors, allowing for a maximum of 26 VGA or 20
13	CIF pictures. The STV0680 supports either a serial or a usb interface, and
14	video is possible through the usb interface.
15	
16	The following cameras are known to work with this driver, although any
17	camera with Vendor/Product codes of 0553/0202 should work:
18	
19	Aiptek Pencam (various models)
20	Nisis QuickPix 2
21	Radio Shack 'Kid's digital camera' (#60-1207)
22	At least one Trust Spycam model
23	Several other European brand models

25	WHAT YOU NEED:
26	
27	-	USB support
28	-	VIDEO4LINUX support
29	
30	More information about USB support for linux can be found at:
31	http://www.linux-usb.org
32	
33	
34	MODULE OPTIONS:
35	
36	When the driver is compiled as a module, you can set a "swapRGB=1"
37	option, if necessary, for those applications that require it
38	(such as xawtv). However, the driver should detect and set this
39	automatically, so this option should not normally be used.
40	
41	
42	KNOWN PROBLEMS:
43	
44	The driver seems to work better with the usb-ohci than the usb-uhci host
45	controller driver.
46	
47	HELP:
