Hello !

We have some small progress in fighting with sunxi-vfe, so I decided we should create a list of supported and tested camera modules, both CSI and USB.


1. gc2035 - (from Steven Zhao) :
OPI2: works without any hardware modification,
OPI PC: you will need OrangePi Camera Expansion Board due to missing parts on this board which provide power supply to camera module,
OPI+: you tell me ?
OPI version 1 - not tested yet

2. ov5640 - Vvision
OPI2: works but you need to reverse pinouts and patch a bug in sunxi-vfe,
OPI PC: needs OrangePi Camera Expansion Board, reverse pinouts and patch a bug in sunxi-vfe,
OPI+: I do not know...
OPI version 1 - not tested yet

I will comit this patch to @loboris repository on github ASAP.


You tell me ?

Software compatibility :

There is an issue with sunxi-vfe which puts camera module in suspend mode. Some software can not wake it up properly and refuses to work (v4l2-ctl, ffmpeg) but some can and seems to work properly (motion, fswebcam). We are thinking how to fix that.
Please report if you find other software that works.

UPDATE : I think we are able to fix that issue too so ffmpeg and v4l2-ctl and other software will work fine. We are testing it now.

UPDATE2 : We still have some small issues with resolution change in ffmpeg and v4l2-ctl, but I think we will fix that soon

I will try to find something on aliexpress for people who do not like soldering.

My camera showed up today - so ... Opi-PC with camera module 1553371, under Fedora 22.  On boot the system doesn't see the module, that I can tell.  lsusb nothing, i2cdetect  0 or 1 says nothing there.  The camera & cable are not keyed so I assume it doesn't matter the direction.  Reading these few threads on the camera it talks about FEX - Oh, just fix fex - I don't have a clue.  Search & Google haven't been any help.  Step by step direction please.

And with that I found http://www.cnx-software.com/2015 ... -linux-with-motion/ and I've got a /dev/video0 that doesn't output anything. I'll keep plugging.
However "motion" is not to be found....

Has anyone of you already used an Omnivision ov5640 together with Orange Pi? And tested real-world scenarios? Especially resolution settings above 800x600? And can confirm that the autofocus bug is fixed?
