Arducam 64MP camera in failed to allocate buffers, failed to start camera

This is a brand new freshly imaged SD card with the latest available 64-bit Raspberry PI OS. In fact, I’ve tried to reimage it twice already with the same results and error(failed to allocate buffers, failed to start camera)
The only installation of additional software and drivers was related to Arducam 64mp camera. I’m able to have output specifying 4624x3472 16mp image, attempting to save a full res 9152x6944 64mp file throws that error. Searching the forums it sees I’m not the only one having this issue.

As of right now, the camera isn’t operational and I would like to get this product working. Any additional suggestions on things I can try?


There will indeed be users who will try all the solutions and still not be able to use them.

I’m still looking for some possibilities. You can try the lite version (without interface), and the lite version is found to be more stable.


I’m working on project in not possible without interface (lite version os).
I have a 50 arducam 64mp camera, some camera properly work some camera in error failed to buffers. any setting parameter change or update??


Do you need qt for your project?

I think it’s just a phenomenon, it might be that the buffer is hitting borderline values, sometimes enough, sometimes not enough.

yes, I need ‘qt’ for my project. My project is every interval time high-quality capture and sent to the server image, sometimes not capture the image and error fails to buffer then the project is stopped so any suggestions.


Currently we don’t have a more perfect solution, and we are actively seeking it.

All updates will be reflected in the doc.
