  6. The dmesg log from your hardware?
    [ 38.896155] arducam_64mp 4-001a: Device found Arducam 64MP.

  7. Troubleshooting attempts you’ve made? Reconnected cables, reversed directions, swapped cables, reinstalled software, updated kernel, checked this forum and installed json file to obtain arducam_64.json which gets wiped after updates, modified config.txt file per the manual and forum instructions.

  8. What help do you need? The *** no cameras available *** error is persistent after using this forum extensively. I need to get the libcamera software to recognize the camera.

Here’s my config.txt file:

For more options and information see


Some settings may impact device functionality. See link above for details

Uncomment some or all of these to enable the optional hardware interfaces


Enable audio (loads snd_bcm2835)


Additional overlays and parameters are documented


Automatically load overlays for detected cameras

camera_auto_detect = 1

Automatically load overlays for detected DSI displays

display_auto_detect = 1

Automatically load initramfs files, if found


Enable DRM VC4 V3D driver


Don’t have the firmware create an initial video= setting in cmdline.txt.

Use the kernel’s default instead.


Run in 64-bit mode


Disable compensation for displays with overscan


Run as fast as firmware / board allows


Enable host mode on the 2711 built-in XHCI USB controller.

This line should be removed if the legacy DWC2 controller is required

(e.g. for USB device mode) or if USB support is not required.



whats your kernel version?
uname -a

ive seen in this forum several people after upgrading kernel arducam not work anymore.

Thanks for your response, I’m beginning to suspect the update is the problem.



  • Flashed an SD card with Debian 6.6.20-1
  • re-installed the drivers per the instructions on the quickstart
  • modified the config.txt file with dtoverlay=arducam=64mp … save & reboot

Camera worked.
