For more options and information see

Raspberry Pi Documentation - Configuration

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

uncomment if you get no picture on HDMI for a default “safe” mode

#hdmi_safe=1

uncomment the following to adjust overscan. Use positive numbers if console

goes off screen, and negative if there is too much border

#overscan_left=16

#overscan_right=16

#overscan_top=16

#overscan_bottom=16

uncomment to force a console size. By default it will be display’s size minus

overscan.

#framebuffer_width=1280

#framebuffer_height=720

uncomment if hdmi display is not detected and composite is being output

#hdmi_force_hotplug=1

uncomment to force a specific HDMI mode (this will force VGA)

#hdmi_group=1

#hdmi_mode=1

uncomment to force a HDMI mode rather than DVI. This can make audio work in

DMT (computer monitor) modes

#hdmi_drive=2

uncomment to increase signal to HDMI, if you have interference, blanking, or

no display

#config_hdmi_boost=4

uncomment for composite PAL

#sdtv_mode=2

#uncomment to overclock the arm. 700 MHz is the default.

#arm_freq=800

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

dtparam=i2c_arm=on

#dtparam=i2s=on

#dtparam=spi=on

Uncomment this to enable infrared communication.

#dtoverlay=gpio-ir,gpio_pin=17

#dtoverlay=gpio-ir-tx,gpio_pin=18

Additional overlays and parameters are documented /boot/overlays/README

Enable audio (loads snd_bcm2835)

dtparam=audio=on

Automatically load overlays for detected cameras

start_x=1

Automatically load overlays for detected DSI displays

display_auto_detect=1

Enable DRM VC4 V3D driver

#dtoverlay=vc4-kms-v3d

max_framebuffers=2

Run in 64-bit mode

arm_64bit=1

Disable compensation for displays with overscan

disable_overscan=1

start_x=1

dtoverlay=ov5647

[cm4]

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.

otg_mode=1

[all]

[pi4]

dtoverlay=vc4-fkms-v3d

Run as fast as firmware / board allows

arm_boost=1

[all]

gpu_mem=128

  1. What help do you need?
    How to have it detected?

Hi,
Please run the command

dmesg | grep ov5647

to detect the camera. Because the ov5647 camera is the official camera, not pivariety camera.

Thank you for your answer: The command answer is empty
[email protected]:~ $ dmesg | grep arducam
[email protected]:~ $

Sorry my answer was wrong
[email protected]:~ $ dmesg | grep ov5647
[ 7.628970] ov5647 10-0036: Consider updating driver ov5647 to match on endpoints

Hi,
Please run the command to see if the camera is detected.

ls /dev/video0

Besides, run the command to access the camera

libcamera-still -t 0

Thanks again for your answer
[email protected]:~ $ ls /dev/video0

and so on…

The camera is not detected :
[email protected]:~ $ vcgencmd get_camera
supported=1 detected=0, libcamera interfaces=1

For this reason, I have double checked the connection (it is written in the documentation). I join the pictures of my analysis
