ArduCAM Mini 5MP OV5642 RAW Images being corrupted

  1. Where did you get the camera module(s)?

The arducam website

  1. Model number of the product(s)?
    ArduCAM Mini 5MP OV5642

  2. What hardware/platform were you working on?
    Arduino MEGA

  3. Instructions you have followed. (link/manual/etc.)
    I used the examples included in the arducam library

  4. Problems you were having?
    Any image I take using the RAW image example ends up coming out as distorted on the SD card

  5. What help do you need?
    I need help saving RAW images taken from the Arducam to my SD card, without corrupting


For the example we provide, the default is to save photos in JPEG format. If you want to save the RAW image, first configure the camera’s data format to RAW, and then modify the file name of the saved image (default is x.jpg).

I’m using the RAW image example which was included in the library. You’re telling me that even that saves it as a JPEG?
