Programmable Motorized Focus Camera Raspberry Pi now Support Auto Focus

Introduction

The standard pi camera is fixed focus lens, some of them are glued which can not be adjust by users, and some of them are not glued which can be adjust the lens focus manually. But in certian circumstance, you want to programmably control the focus distance remotely where the device can not be reached. The ArduCAM team now designed motorized control focus 5MP and 8MP camera module for Raspberry Pi series boards to address this problem. Now the auto focus function is also implement by the Arducam team, now the auto-focus demo source code is available on our github.
