Camera frontend timeout

I am unable to take a picture with my 64-AF Quad Kit. It comes up with the following error:

I have changed the cables, rebooted the pi but nothing seems to work.

Hi,
There are some information to confirm with you.

  • Have you installed the libcamera from Arducam?

  • Have you connected all four cameras to your HAT board?

Hello,

I have installed the libcamera from Arducam and all four cameras are connected to the HAT board.
I have tried this with multiple boards and cameras and I am still getting the same issue.

Hi! Have you solved this issue? I am facing the same problem with 64mp quad camera kit.

Hi
Please check the confirmations above.

Hi Dion,

Thanks, I think I have passed the previous mentioned part, now all the four cameras are connected and can be seen from a preview window by the command: libcamera-still -t 0
Now the issue is that I want to adjust the focus of two cameras separately, how can I do that?

(My project needs to take photos from 3 different angles of a stationary object placing 100mm - 200mm from the cameras)

Thanks again.
