How do I connect AR1820HS to a Raspberry Pi 4 Model B

Hi all, doing this for the first time so bear with me…


I have a Raspberry Pi 4 Model B, and a Arducam CMOS AR1820HS 1/2.3−inch 18MP Color Camera Module.

The cable from the doesn’t match the connector on the Pi. I guess I need some kind of adapter. Can anyone advise me on what kind I need? I’ve tried googling this to no avail.


Sorry for my later reply due to our Chinese New Year’s holiday.

You should use this yellow kind of ribbon cable


Ok thank you!

I already bought this cable, I think it’s the same?

Translation: “Camera adapter 150 mm for Raspberry Pi Zero”

However, my Pi still doesn’t detect the camera.

vcgencmd get_camera

supported=1 detected=0


Yes, It is the same ribbon cable.

The official driver does not support 1820, so you should not use vcgencmd get_camera command.

Please use our MIPI_Camera library.

Let me know if you need more help.

Have a nice day.


Thank you! Seems like it detects the camera now.

Still not working though, what’s wrong here?
