What camera are you talking about? Is it the CMUcam for the BoeBot? If so, there's documentation on the Parallax webstore page.

negative, it is this camera i have alot of out puts, it is compatible with sx key which has more horespower, but i thought i might be able to use it someway even if not to it's fullest capacity, i did notice that the camera is the same it is the board that is different, i will try using some of the soruce codes for the older version of the camera, thanks

I think that most of the non-Parallax CMUcams use RS232 signal levels, so follow the examples in the BASIC Stamp Syntax and Reference Manual for connecting RS232 signals to Stamp I/O pins (in the chapters on SERIN and SEROUT).
