Setting up imx327 to manually set ir cut

  1. Where did you get the camera module(s)?
    Presale - Arducam 2MP Ultra Low Light STARVIS IMX327 Motorized IR-CUT Camera for Raspberry Pi - Arducam
  2. Model number of the product(s)?
    B0425 (UC755 rev C)
  3. What hardware/platform were you working on?
    Raspberry Pi Zero 2
  4. Instructions you have followed. (link/manual/etc.)
    I’ll link the article about manual ir cut on this particular camera…
    Quick start - Arducam Wiki
    We have been searching for where to weld a 470-ohm resistor to the
    camera board. Looked online but no information on this particular camera as to where this is, or disabling the photosensor.

Attached is a picture of where we are thinking we will weld the resistor onto and how to disable photosensor.

  1. Problems you were having?
    Locating where to put the resistor.

  2. The dmesg log from your hardware?

  3. Troubleshooting attempts you’ve made?

  4. What help do you need?
    Information regarding where the resistor is put on this model camera.


Yes that’s the way we have it setup… no photo sensor.

The program we’ve written simply sets GPIO4 high or low, and it’ll work the first time, going ON or OFF (setting GPIO HIGH or LOW) but then after this it doesn’t work
what software do we use on the pi zero2?



We were able to get the ircut filter working manually. Thanks for the assistance!

We took a similar approach - except we didn’t need to remove the photo resistor (just unplugged it).
