I have a Raspberry Pi Zero with the latest Raspbian operating system (2018-04-18-raspbian-stretch-lite.img). Attached I have a raspberry pi camera that is not working as it is supposed to be. My setup looks like the image at the bottom of this question.
The issue is that I do not see this device ind the
dev directory. I would expect to find something like
/dev/video0 but that does not appear. I have tried several instructions. I tried this question on this site but that solution did not work for me. I get this output:
pi@raspberrypi:~ $ fswebcam -r 640x480 --no-banner image3.jpg
--- Opening /dev/video0...
stat: No such file or directory
I have enabled the camera in
sudo raspi-config and restartet several times.
I have executed the command
sudo modprobe bcm2835_v4l2 but that did not generate any output whatsoever.
I have executed
sudo apt-get update;sudo apt-get upgrade to have all the latest packages installed.
I am running out of ideas on what else to try. Any help is highly appreciated. My own research on this topic did not help me so far.
Running the command from the first comment produces this error:
pi@raspberrypi:~ $ raspistill -o cam.jpg
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 think I installed it correctly, as shown in the image below. The two modules on the side do light up so they should be powered.
