At Arducam

Many people perform computer and machine vision tasks on RPi, in which they have to deal with fast-moving objects. A global shutter camera is an ideal solution to avoid the rolling artifacts for better image processing, but it’s not easy on RPi.

Arducam is one of the first companies that offers a way to interface global shutter cameras to the Raspberry Pi. And now, Raspberry Pi developers have managed to port the drivers and then officially merged them to the Raspberry Pi kernel tree. That means you will be able to use our OV7251/OV9281 cameras with the official V4L2 driver.

Arducam OV7251 MIPI cameras are mainly designed for the Raspberry Pi and connected directly to its CSI connector. They support the official V4L2 camera driver and Arducam userland driver.
