Overview
  • Multiplexing with ultra high res: 4 x 64mp cameras on 1 Pi.
  • Synchronized: up to 4 cameras capturing at the same time.
  • Autofocus: AF/Manual/Continuous-AF out of the box.
  • Better Control: single/dual/quad channel modes.
  • Highly Compatible: libcamera-ready, works well with most Pi models.

Overview

A quad-camera kit that allows you to use up to four 64-megapixel autofocus cameras on a standard Raspberry Pi model.

By default, the kit works in a quad-channel mode where all cameras are configured to capture stills/videos at the exact same time.

 

Supported Modes

Single Channel (no sync):
4 cameras work consecutively where one camera captures after the other. Full-res for each.

Dual-Channel (synced):
2 cameras merged into 1 full-res frame, working synchronously. 1/2 res for each.

Quad-Channel (synced):
4 cameras merged into 1 full-res frame, working synchronously. 1/4 res for each.

Documentations

 

Note

  • Raspberry Pi and tripod are not included.
  • The 64MP cameras in the kit are exclusively made and can only be used with the Camarray HAT. Connecting any of them directly to Raspberry Pi will not work.
  • The arducam 64MP cameras can only get maximum resolution and video streaming on Pi4 and CM4 platforms. The resolution and video streaming of the camera will be limited on other Raspberry Pi platforms.

using note

1. The four-channel camera adopts the 2×2 synthesis method. The images of cameras 0 and 1 are completely synchronized, the images of cameras 2 and 3 are completely synchronized, and the images of cameras 2/3 are one frame behind the images of cameras 0/1.

2. The resolution of the synthesized image remains unchanged, but the frame rate is halved.

3. If any camera fails, the composite image can still be output, with the corresponding area of the failed camera being black.

4. Official Commands and ISP are supported.

5. The four-channel camera is a customized model, requiring HAT to provide a clock. It cannot be removed and is directly connected to the Raspberry Pi.

6. The driver of the kit is mainly developed based on the Raspberry Pi/ Nvidia Jeston official board, and there is no guarantee that the third-party board can be used (Due to the different allocation of hardware resources, it may not be compatible)

7. This camera kit supports the latest Raspberry Pi OS Bullseye (Jan 28th, 2022 and later) and libcamera apps, for the previous Raspberry Pi OS (Legacy) users, contact [email protected] for support.

 

FAQS

  • For dual/quad-channel mode, does the kit still use the full sensor as input?
       - When it’s in sync/4-channel mode, it uses ¼ the pixels of each sensor as input. When you switch to single-channel mode, you can get 4 images at full res!
 
  • For single channel mode, what frame rate can I get and how fast can I capture and switch between cameras?
      - You can get roughly ~8 frames (full res) per second with single-channel mode, and the HAT we designed has the ability to switch to the next camera after each frame, so in theory, you can switch between cameras every ~125 ms (⅛ s), but, and it’s a huge but, it also depends on how fast you can store that full res image, whether you want the HAT to switch to the next camera after a frame’s captured or stored, which Raspberry Pi model you use, etc.
 
  • Can this work with your cable extension kit?
       - Yes.
