Arducam Pivariety is a Raspberry Pi camera solution to take the advantage of using its hardware ISP functions. Using Arducam Pivariety camera modules, users can get better performance and a wider variety of camera, and lens options. For a long time, Raspberry Pi users are limited to using the closed-source official supported camera driver and camera modules (V1/V2/HQ). Now Arducam made it possible to provide a well-tuned ISP for Pivariety camera modules with Auto Exposure, Auto White Balance, Lens Shading Correction, etc.
- First you need to do Hardware setup. You need to make the connections as shown in the link . For Software setup, you can go to the same link.
- If you want to access and program the pivariety camera through the Command Line, Python, OpenCV and GStreamer, please follow the link .
Note: If you face any problem while installing the driver then there are few ways to install it. To do that follow the procedure given in the link .
