  • Motorized Focus: Programmable autofocus, software to control
  • Simpliy Control: Python- OpenCV sofrware, support using “up” and “down” to adjust the focus
  • Native to Raspberry Pi: No need to install additional driver
  • Check Jetson Nano version SKU: B0273


This Arducam IMX477 High Quality motorized focus camera module integrates a motor that could be controlled by software for a smarter focus, and you will no longer focus the camera by screwing the lens with your bare hands. Instead, keyboard keys or OpenCV can be used to remotely control the focusing process of your HQ camera.

The same 12MP IMX477 High Quality Camera, but with smarter focus control – No more hand touching.

  • The intuitive focus control: Fine-tune the focus with keyboard arrow keys.
  • The automated focus control: Autofocus with OpenCV examples

Focus motor controlled via camera I2C.


  • DSLR Camera Control
  • Remote Viewing Camera
  • Time-lapse Machine
  • Security System
  • Smart Video Doorbell
  • Face Recognition
  • Instant (Polaroid-Style) Camera, etc.

  • Our IMX477 camera module support 4-lane in hardware, but the 4-lane camera driver requires extra customization. Here is why:
    1. Standard Raspberry Pi and Jetson Nano/Xavier NX can’t physically support a 4-lane connection (both of them only have 2-lane CSI connectors). Only the Raspberry Pi Compute Module and some 3rd party Jetson Carrier Boards come with 4-lane hardware support. Therefore, it’s not a general need.

    2. Extra works, specifically camera drivers, are required for a 4-lane connection other than the 4-lane physical connector. And the drivers are limited by the performances of the platform itself. For example, 4-lane can’t unlock 4k video on Raspberry Pi because the VideoCore does not currently support it. Jetson Nano is also to some extent limited because of the encoding capabilities. You need to make sure you really need it.
