Is there something better than the ESP32-CAM board? In therms of image quality and streaming capabilities? To make a good quality WiFi camera.

EDIT:
To be used in DIY projects like the ESP32-CAM, a small board with a small camera.
At least WXGA (1280x800) at 60 frames, ideally 1080P (1920x1080) without image jumping and a good quality lens with less blur and vignetting then ESP32-CAM camera.

  • \$\begingroup\$ Part/equipment selection questions are off topic. Note that a router-style Embedded Linux booting from robust NOR flash can probably host any USB camera with a standard-ish interface. \$\endgroup\$ – Chris Stratton Jun 30 '20 at 20:36

You might consider a Raspberry Pi with the new HQ camera module they released a couple months ago:

  • \$\begingroup\$ Of course an SD-card based pi is in a very different category than a NOR-flash-based ESP32 in terms of complexity and robustness of state. \$\endgroup\$ – Chris Stratton Jun 30 '20 at 20:35
  • \$\begingroup\$ in one case you have a whole operating system, which might be an advantage or a disadvantage. provided that you can program a script that runs on the rpi, you can have a functionally equivalent module \$\endgroup\$ – valerio_new Jun 30 '20 at 20:52
  • \$\begingroup\$ There are ways to get a full operating system in a more robust form, a more power mangeable form, etc. - the pi was really designed to be a set top box, not an embedded system. Anyway shopping questions are off topic to begin with. \$\endgroup\$ – Chris Stratton Jun 30 '20 at 20:53
