SPI Camera (OV5642) Configuration: Reading RAW values

  1. Where did you get the camera module(s)?

  2. Model number of the product(s)?

  3. What hardware/platform were you working on?
    Circuit Python on Raspberry Pi Pico

  4. Instructions you have followed. (link/manual/etc.)
    GitHub - ArduCAM/PICO_SPI_CAM

  5. Problems you were having?
    I am trying to read the RGB values from the camera. I have tried reverse engineering the provided libraries but keep getting back a zero value.

  6. What help do you need?
    May you direct me to documentation showing how to use the camera’s default setting to capture a single image in RAW format in Python?
    May you direct me to documentation showing how to change the resolution size of the camera in Python? (I saw in the link there are functions do so in JPEG format but need my output in RGB)

Thank you for the assistance!


We are not currently doing RGB.
You can refer to the configuration we have adjusted

@Edward is this similar?


The thread you posted is about flash reading and writing, which is not the same as your status.

For the raw/rgb data you need now, you need to change the sensor according to our configuration.
