Using imx519 as a WebCam

  1. Where did you get the camera module(s)?
    16MP High-Res camera from Kickstarter campaign

  2. Model number of the product(s)?
    B0386

  3. What hardware/platform were you working on?
    Raspberry Pi Zero 2 W

  4. Instructions you have followed.
    Followed the instructions from Plug-and-play Raspberry Pi USB webcam - Raspberry Pi
    The only difference is using the 64-bit version of “Raspberry Pi OS Lite” (Bullseye) instead of the 32-bit version.

Otherwise to support the imx519, I followed the instructions from Quick Start - Arducam Wiki

  1. Problems you were having?
    The host computer (Intel iMac running macOS 10.15.7) does not detect the Pi-based WebCam though it is seen as a “UVC Gadget” from Apple System Information (USB section). The Camera section of Apple System Information does not report the WebCam.

  2. The dmesg log from your hardware?

Seems to indicate that the camera is detected, but don’t know what next to do…

  1. What help do you need?
    To get it work as a “Plug-and-play Raspberry Pi USB webcam”.

Thank you for any help!

@Will

Sorry, I can’t confirm if you can use this fun example with this camera.

Based on the information from your dmesg, it appears that there are no issues with the camera.

Before proceeding, it’s crucial to ensure that the camera can correctly display images as per the documentation.

Hello Edward,

Yes the camera can correctly display images as per the documentation when the uvc-gadget program is not running (called from rpi-uvc-gadget.sh at the end of the boot process).

If I try to use the camera when uvc-gadget is running, for example with: libcamera-still -t 5000 -n -o ~/Desktop/test.jpg, I get the following error:

[0:03:52.449565425] [1349] INFO Camera camera_manager.cpp:299 libcamera v0.0.0+4225-74d023d8
[0:03:52.647452127] [1352] INFO RPI raspberrypi.cpp:1476 Registered camera /base/soc/i2c0mux/[email protected]/[email protected] to Unicam device /dev/media0 and ISP device /dev/media1
[0:03:52.647938012] [1349] INFO Camera camera.cpp:841 Pipeline handler in use by another process
**ERROR: *** failed to acquire camera /base/soc/i2c0mux/[email protected]/[email protected] *****

This seems to indicate that uvc-gadget is indeed using the camera. I guess the issue is with the camera setup in rpi-uvc-gadget.sh where correct values should be provided for the “width and height, plus the maximum buffer size required to store a single frame, and finally with the supported frame intervals for that format and framesize” according to Linux UVC Gadget Driver — The Linux Kernel documentation

At that point, this is a bit too technical for me. Hope someone could investigate and help getting it work with the ArduCam RPi cameras. Being able to use them as a WebCam or even as a RTSP Camera Stream (using something like GitHub - mpromonet/v4l2rtspserver: RTSP Server for V4L2 device capture supporting HEVC/H264/JPEG/VP8/VP9) would be super useful. Having those capabilities would definitely make me consider the ArduCam Camera solutions over the official RaspberryPi Cameras in my future projects!

@Will

After giving it some thought, I find this project to be interesting, and I plan to try out the entire process in a few days. I will do my best to assist you in any way possible.

Thanks @Edward, very much appreciated!

@Will

I have also tested it myself, but I am unable to use the device through the entire process, even with the official Raspberry Pi camera (imx708). Although the device is detected by my computer, I am unable to open it with any software.

I tried to find some GitHub repositories, but it appears that the available resources are limited to a blog, which makes it difficult to get support. I suggest reaching out to Raspberry Pi regarding this issue, as I do not think the problem lies with the camera itself.
