Ammm ... I need to take 15 photos in 1 second and send a synchronization signal for each picture. Is that possible? ;)

Hi

If I take a picture with raspistill or with picamera the pictures have wrong colors as you can see at the attached picture. The forest should be green but it's brown like in the fall.

I have tried the camera with two different RPI with the same result. What could be the problem?

Kernel:
Linux raspberrypi 3.12.26+ #703 PREEMPT Tue Aug 12 18:13:52 BST 2014 armv6l GNU/Linux

The upper part of the picture was taken with a mobile phone camera.

Are you sure that's the 'normal' Pi camera? It looks more like the result of the Pi-NoIR.

Hi

I bought the camera (RP_OV5647) last year (maybe June 2013) and I think the NOIR camera was not on the market at this time...

Sry, PCB is not green it's black. Is it the "Pi NoIR" camera?

Re: Foundation Camera Board discontinued?information

Hi All-
I'd like to know if this was an April Fools post or not:


OV5647 Discontinued
by arm_design » Tue Mar 31, 2015 11:30 pm
Now that all flavors of the OV5647 camera sensor have been discontinued
does anyone have any idea of what comes next?
reference: http://www.ovt.com/support/ July 31, 2014 EOL Notices


by jamesh » Wed Apr 01, 2015 4:18 am
There are still a fair number in the supply chain - what comes after that I don't know.

and others etc, etc on following days

viewtopic.php?f=43&t=106055

Reason I ask is, I've bought quite a bit of Pi gear for a project involving that camera.

Also, a major Pi distributor has put both Pi cameras on steep discount, perhaps in response to that thread.

The question of what comes next needs an answer soon...

I do not know what the plans are (and they do not advertise them in advance).

But I would expect any new camera board to be very similar in size and shape, the sensor probably a higher resolution as they are now cheaper anyway. Similar price point.

Hope a camera board with NoIR, a integrated IR Cut Switcher and CS or M12 mount, so you can use it
as a day&night camera with various lenses,.

Doubt that will happen - too expensive for a smaller market.

Anyone's guess what comes next- Omnivision no longer lists the current R-Pi sensor OV5647 on its sensor selection web page http://www.ovt.com/products/category.php?id=11 but that page does list seven other devices OV5640, OV5645, OV5648, OV5658, OV5670, OV5680, OV5693 all of which are 5 MPixel sensors with pixel dimensions both same size (1.4 um), smaller (1.12 um) and larger (1.75 um) than the current RPi sensor.

If it was me doing the work, I'd choose another 1.4 um pixel 5 Mpix sensor in the same family, to preserve best compatibility and reuse of existing configurations.
If it was me voting and someone else doing the work, I'd prefer bigger pixels for better light sensitivity, over increased resolution. However no doubt that costs more, involves more work and I'm 0.0000000001% of the market so I don't think I get a vote :-)

For that matter, Omnivision is not the only company that makes MIPI CSI-2 interface imaging sensors. There is also for example Aptina (now On Semi). In some cases they even put their full datasheets online, how shocking is that... http://www.onsemi.com/pub_link/Collater ... 30CM-D.PDF

The RPi camera market is apparently large enough that there are third-party solutions for compatible M12 and CS-mount boards (Amazon, ebay etc). I don't expect that will change. I'm not criticizing the RPi folks for not providing such options as I doubt the foreign sources are burdened by much CE/FCC testing etc.

Re: STICKY: Foundation (old) Camera Board information

Fri Aug 30, 2019 2:21 pm

"... (old) ..." has been added to the subject.

What I seem worth mentioning are some facts that still hold in 2019 for v1 camera (clone).

Availability:
  1. even 4 years after v2 camera became available v1 camera can be bought at many sellers
  2. v1 camera clones are really cheap, less than 4$ with free shipping.
    This query ("Raspberry camera 5MP", free shipping, sort price low to high) should always allow to find cheap offers:
    https://www.aliexpress.com/wholesale?is ... roupsort=1
  3. today I received 4 v1 cameras I ordered for 2.84$ inclusive shipping, tested them and all are fine:
    https://www.aliexpress.com/item/32946093276.html
  4. now I have two v2 and 11 v1 cameras, some NoIR, some normal, some bought with M12 mount, some with M12 mount added manually
Features:
  1. v2 camera can do same frame format raspivid capturing with higher framerates (720p, 480p):
    https://www.raspberrypi.org/documentati ... /camera.md
  2. both v1 and v2 cameras allow for raspiraw high framerate capturing far above 200fps
  3. for same framerate, v2 camera can capture 640x2H frame format as v1 can capture 640xH (eg. 640x128/640x64 @666fps):
    https://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/view ... 5#p1320034
  4. only v1 camera can do global reset capturing.
    This allows for v1 global external shutter capturing (36µs flash duration, 26000rpm propeller):

Always worth noting that if you buy non-Pi cameras, we make no money from them, and that means less cash for future products/Foundation work.

But it's certainly your choice.

Agreed, but I bought two v2 cameras and a 4B, a 3B+, a 3A+, a 3B, a 2B+, 3xZeroW (and 5 Zeros you seem to make no money with), and official 12.75W and 15.3W power supplies ...
