There are 4 files: camera_i2c_config、i2c_read、i2c_write、

RaspberryPi Only, Set IO config




first,it will config IO pin.

Then you can run

camera_i2c_config USAGE

  • for standard RPI, just run


  • for RPI Computer Module

./camera_i2c_config [cameranum]

Usage: ./ [-r/w] [-f] function name -p1 param1 -p2 param2 -b bus


-r read

-w write

-f [function name] function name

-p1 [param1] param1 of each function

-b [i2c bus num] i2c bus number

support functions: devid,hdver,wdrmode,videoformat,mirrormode,denoise,agc,lowlight,daynightmode,ircutdir,irtrigger,mshutter

Pi3B / Pi3B+ / 3A / 4B(1G/2G/4G),we use i2c0

Compute Module/ CM3,we use i2c1,please add -b 1 option.

./ -r -f agc

agc indicated max gain of AE mode.

./ -r -f lowlight
./ -w -f lowlight -p1 [value]

In the case of low illuminance, the camera module can prolong the exposure time and reduce the frame rate by configuring this parameter to achieve a better effect of low illuminance.

Note that it is not suitable for use in a sports scene.

0xFC Trigger Mode

IR-CUT (Infrared cut-off filter) is a mechanical shutter design. It is placed between the lens and the image sensor, and is controlled by a motor or an electromagnet.

IR-CUT has two status: Block or Deliver the infrared.

  • Color Mode

Image is Color Mode and IR_CUT status Block infrared.

  • Black&White Mode

Image is Black&White Mode and IR_CUT status Deliver infrared.

  • Trigger Mode

Trigger pin : J3 pin1.

Trigger pin High(3.3~12V),Image is Black&White Mode and IR-CUT status Deliver infrared.

Trigger pin Low(GND),Image is Color Mode and IR-CUT status Bolck infrared.


close AE, use manual shutter

./ -r -f mshutter

./ -w -f mshutter -p1 [value]

value is exposure time(seconds)

If value is greater than or equal to 0x4B, it will reduce framerate.

Requirements:hdver >= 0x3

./ -r -f cameramode

./ -w -f cameramode -p1 [value]

value description
0x0 Stream mode
0x1 Capture mode

Stream mode: stream output

Caputre mode: output the next frame each capture cmd.


Requirements:hdver >= 0x3, effective in Stream mode

Number of dropped frames

It is a method of framerate control, output one frame,discard notf frames,output next frame, and so on.

actual framerate = original framerate /(1+notf)

For example,if the original framerate is 30fps, set notf to 2, then actual framerate is 10fps.

./ -r -f notf

./ -w -f notf -p1 [value]

ntof range is [0-0xFF], default 0.


Requirements:hdver >= 0x3, effective in Capture mode

./ -w -f capture

Output the next frame. This cmd does not interfere the sensor, it just output the next frame (the newest frame).

So it is not trigger mode, there will be a delay[0,1/framerate] between the cmd and the frame exposure.

It is applicable to those that do not require a high level of real-time performance.


Requirements:hdver >= 0x3

./ -r -f csienable

./ -w -f csienable -p1 [value]

value description
0x0 suspend csi output
0x1 enable csi output

default: 0x1

Note: This is not low power mode, the camera is still working.
