4.3 Check and Test the Camera

After you’ve finished the hardware assembly and driver installation, the following steps can help you diagnose to make sure the camera is detected and supported.

List the video device

The OBISP MIPI camera modules are emulated as the standard video device under /dev/video* node, so you can use the ls command for listing the contents in the /dev folder.

ls /dev/video0
obisp raspberry pi list device

List the available video modes

Since the camera module is V4L2 complaint, you can use the V4l2 controls to list the supported color space, resolutions, and frame rates. The results might vary from camera to camera (The screen shot is only apply for 13MP OBISP camera).

v4l2-ctl --list-formats-ext
obisp raspberry pi list video format

If you run the commands without results, you might have to check the ribbon connection or install the drivers correctly, then reboot the Jetson Nano or Xavier NX board.
