  • Adjustable Distance: control the focal length with the software-controlled moveable lens
  • Motorised Focus: fine-tune the focus with its autofocus capability and the autofocus Python scripts powered by OpenCV
  • Manual Calibration: control the precise manual focus with the 'UP' and 'DOWN' arrow keys
  • Highly compatible: utilising the 5MP OV5647 sensor enables a vast range of supporting OS like Raspbian, OctoPi, MotionEye, Kali, Ubuntu and more

Arducam recognises the significance of focus and has introduced a motorised focus camera for Raspberry Pi. Unlike the official camera modules with fixed-focus lenses that are either glued or require manual adjustment, this Arducam camera module allows you to have control over the focus through software. With this camera, you can zoom in closer and capture the exact perspective you desire.

The majority of 3D models require several hours to complete the printing process, which means it may be necessary for you to step away from the 3D printer during this time. By utilizing an Arducam camera, you can closely monitor the progress of your 3D printing project. Unlike most cameras that are not designed specifically for 3D printing software, Arducam provides the necessary support to address any installation or setup issues that may arise.

Important Note
Raspberry Pi Zero and Raspberry Pi Compute Module need 15-pin to 22-pin FPC cable to work.
