Introduction

A 64-megapixel ultra-high resolution autofocus camera module exclusively built for the latest and future generations of Raspberry Pis.

By bringing a sensor inside modern-day flagship phones to Raspberry Pi. you can take DSLR like still images at the maximum resolution of 9152 x 6944. And with an autofocus lens, the ePTZ, and the upcoming continuous-autofocus features.

You now get more horsepower to build more applications, to cover more industries, to unlock more fields, at a much lower cost.

For seasoned makers, Pi Hawk-eye is designed to ensure you a smooth yograde, it is compatible with everything you already have: the v1/v2 form-factor, the MIPI CSI-2 connection, the latest libcamera software, the standard tripod mount, etc.

A handy way to use a Raspberry Pi camera to capture images with your phone.

Step 1. Getting Things Ready

What you need:

An SSH-enabled Raspberry Pi

A Camera Module (Arducam 16MP-AF/64MP-AF)

An Android phone

The RaspController App

Please follow the quick manuals to first make sure the cameras work properly.

Step 2. Connecting to Raspberry Pi

Open RaspController on your phone, and click the plus button (bottom right) to add a device.

Device name: whatever you want to call it

Host/IP Address: Your Raspberry Pi's IP address.

SSH Port: keep it to default.

Timeout (Sec): keep it to default

Username: Your RPI's username. (by default, it's "pi")
