Thanks for your business. Using Arducam ov9281 is very easy, just open the /boot/config.txt and add dtoverlay=ov9281 then reboot your system. You can get the detail user guide here https://www.arducam.com/docs/cameras-for-raspberry-pi/migrated/ov9281-1mp-global-shutter-raspberrypi-camera/

Let me know if you need more help.



Many thanks. That works as expected.

One more question: Does raw mode using the Arducam MIPI library work when the overlay is active?



You are welcome.

If using Arducam MIPI_Camera driver. you can’t enable the dtoverlay=ov9281, just comment it and reboot.

Let me know if you need more help.
