IMX291 Wide Angle Mini H.264 UVC, Can't Get Exposure Control in Buster

I’m trying to setup a stream from my Raspberry PI 3 (buster) using this UVC camera. I got the stream to work using uv4l. This gets me a mjpg and h264 stream. I can’t get any control over the camera so it is not working in low light like advertised.

How can I expose and change the settings like the frame rate, saturation, brightness, exposure ect from the raspberry pi without using VLC? v4l2-ctl doesn’t work, uvcdynctrl doesn’t seem to expose any options.


7.What attempts at troubleshooting have you already made?
I’ve tried many different uvc modules for changing settings
8.How would you like us to help you?
Tell me how to change the settings on the uvc camera

I realized I can’t change settings while viewing the stream in a browser.

I can change the resolution using

fswebcam -d v4l2:/dev/video0 -i 0 -r 1280x729 --list-controls

Again, no controls come up as available controls.

v4l2-ctl --list-ctrls should output a list of available controls and does not. Something is missing.
