Quick start by Using Raspberry PI OS Build In Driver:

Please Note: Raspberry pi os built in drivers support cam-mipi9281raw module already,just need simple setup.


Edit config.txt by command ‘sudo nano /boot/config.txt’, add ‘dtparam=i2c_vc=on,dtoverlay=ov9281’ and save file;


Edit cmdline.txt by command ‘sudo nano /boot/cmdline.txt’,add ‘cma=128M’ to the last line then reboot your raspberry pi by ‘sudo reboot’ .


Use command ‘/dev/video*’ check if there is a video0, if yes, follow next step. if not, check above step if right.


Use VLC Tools get preview video.Capture Device choose /dev/video0.


Frame rate test by command ‘v4l2-ctl –stream-mmap –stream-count=-1 -d /dev/video0 –stream-to=/dev/null’ , check frame rate,press ctrl+c stop;


use our program get real-time preview video(You need to download it from wiki,download address can not list here).’cd cam-mipiov9281′,’sudo chmod -R a+rwx *’,’cd tools’,’./vcmipidemo-1028 -s 4 -g 0x88 -a -f’,


Our inno-maker driver support more working mode, for more details or full usermanual please contat us by wiki or email.
