Hi,
Could you post the link where you purchased this camera module?

I have also tried the solution you post here Running B0423 - IMX462 on Pi5 bookworm - #4 by Dion

libcamera-still -t 0 --tuning-file ./new_imx290.json

I have following errors :

Hi guy any idea what is the issue. Does the arducam IMX462 work on last release of Bookworm, because your installation script still point to /boot/config.txt which is not used anymore by the OS, it is now /boot/firmware/config.txt

Hi,
It seems that you did not follow the correct guide before. Please follow the steps below to configure your Raspberry Pi to access this camera module.
https://docs.arducam.com/Raspberry-Pi-Camera/Pivariety-Camera/Quick-Start-Guide/#pivariety-cameras

:ok_hand: It works, thanks for your help.
