OV2311 not detected on Raspberry Pi 4

Hi Community,

I recently started working with cameras and bought the " Arducam 2MP OV2311 Global Shutter M12 Mount NoIR Mono Camera Modules for Jetson Nano"

I hope I didn’t make the mistake that this camera only works for the Jetson Nano. The ribbon cable seems to be a 15 pin and inserts just fine in my board.

I followed the manual in setting things up but when I try to capture an image I get:

Open camera…
init camera status = 4099

I am stuck here, doesn’t seem like the board is recognizing the camera. Not sure why. Cable connection seems fine. Any help please?

hi, @Wook

Did you install the arducam camera driver as required? You can refer to the link below to install the driver.

After the driver installation is complete, you need to restart the Raspberry Pi. After restarting, execute the following command to check whether there are video0 and video1 nodes:

ls /dev/video* -l

Refer to the link below to install libcamera-dev and libcamera-apps.

Execute the command below to run the camera.

libcamera-still -t 0

If you followed the above steps, what command did you run the camera to execute?

I installed the driver from your first link and then installed the libcamera-dev and libcamera-apps.

I am getting the following when running the libcamera-still:

[email protected]:~/Desktop $ libcamera-still -t 500
bash: /usr/bin/libcamera-still: No such file or directory

I did get the video0 and video1 nodes and more just like the sample, everything installed fine. Not sure why it’s saying this error. Would you know?

hi, @Wook

libcamera-apps doesn’t seem to be installed successfully.

You can use the command below to view the libcamera deb package installation information.

dpkg -l | grep libcamera

Thank you, Yang. It works now. I had to add framerate for it to work for some odd reason.
