I am trying to set up this camera to my raspberry pi 4. The fact about this camera is that, according to the seller it's different than the normal v2 cameras that we typically install on raspberry pi and it needs some extra work. I followed the instructions from the seller in order to install the driver and etc. Everything went smoothly according to the instruction but I am not able to capture images from this camera when it is connected to my pi. Here are the kind of things that I did so far:
- I checked all the connections of the camera and they seem okay.
- I tried the picamera v2 module and it works fine but not the aforementioned camera.
- I checked the raspi-config and the camera is enabled.
- When I try the
raspistillcommand, it throws the following exception
mmal: Cannot read camera info, keeping the defaults for OV5647 mmal: mmal_vc_component_create: failed to create component 'vc.ril.camera' (1:ENOMEM) mmal: mmal_component_create_core: could not create component 'vc.ril.camera' (1) mmal: Failed to create camera component mmal: main: Failed to create camera component mmal: Camera is not detected. Please check carefully the camera module is installed correctly
I contacted their support team and they said you cannot use
raspistillwith this camera, that command is for the Picamera module. I have no idea what they mean by this.
I follow their instruction in this link without any problem but I am not sure how to capture an image without any error.
Any help would be appreciated and please let me know in the message box if I did not provide the full info. Also something to keep in mind, the seller informed me that this camera setup is different than the normal raspi camera that we typically use.
My final question is, if I am not supposed to use raspistill to capture images, then how can I capture images?
