AR1820HS Programmable Focus Support Issue

  1. Where did you get the camera module(s)?
  2. Model number of the product(s)?
  3. What hardware/platform were you working on?
    Raspberry Pi 4
  4. Instructions you have followed. (link/manual/etc.)
    How to access and program the Pivariety Camera using Command Line, Python, OpenCV, and GStreamer
  5. Problems you were having?
    v4l2-ctl -l does not have a focus_absolute… I can’t find another way to enable it for this camera
  6. The dmesg log from your hardware?
    unknown control ‘focus_absolute’
  7. Troubleshooting attempts you’ve made?
    Re-enabling I2C, looking into instructions for other programmable focus controlled cameras (all have a built in motor… does this one?)
  8. What help do you need?
    I would like to know if my camera module has a motor that is supposed to drive the programmable focus, and if not, how am I supposed to program the focus?
