Sorry if this is a repeat question but I have searched for quite some time with no luck. I am unable to find any information on autofocus on the IMX298. From its appearance it seems to have the capability but I can’t find reliable information about it (either yes or no). A few weeks ago I seemed to get it to work but have since reinstalled and upgraded various packages and am unable to get the focus to work now.
To add context, some of the information on the website is unclear, as it states on the IMX298 web page:
“Please note that it is the RAW sensor that doesn’t include ISP (Image Signal Processing) on the image sensor chip, so it only supports manual exposure, manual white balance, manual gain settings.”
Yet auto white balance and auto exposure seem to work when I run the demos.
If you could please clarify what the capabilities are for this unit (also including autofocus) I would appreciate it. It might also help to put it on the relevant web pages to inform potential customers if these capabilities are in fact available.
Also, could you please let me know if there is any hardware datasheet / manual available, which might help to understand the workings and addresses of the sensor better for troubleshooting purposes?
