Update: This Stereo Camera HAT has been updated into the Arducam Camarray Solution. Now Arducam released a stereo camera HAT for Raspberry Pi which allows you to connect two 5MP OV5647 or two 8MP IMX219 pi cameras to a single standard pi board, and takes images or video at the same time, even more, important they are fully synchronized. The highlight of this stereo camera HAT is that it incorporates Arducam proprietary ArduChip solution, and extends the usage of the single pi camera port, it cheats the Raspberry pi as if only one camera connected. It supports Raspistill command for preview and Raspivid command for video capture/processing with Rpi default camera driver for its 5MP and 8MP cameras. It also supports other Arducam Raspberry Pi cameras and a proprietary camera driver that works up to two 16MP. With the shared oscillator and I2C broadcasting, the two cameras are fully synchronized in the nano-second level. With the latest new coming Pi 4 hardware, Arducam makes more camera applications possible for Raspberry Pi.

Wanna Use Synchronized Dual Camera for Raspberry Pi 4 or Stereo Camera HAT for Pi 3B+/3? Arducam Makes Them All Come True
Preface Standard Raspberry Pi, like the Pi 4, only offers a single CSI camera connector, but people would love multiple cameras for 3D applications. Arducam has figured out a way to connect the sync two cameras at the same time in 2019, and the following blog tells you all about it. A year later in […]

Important Note on the Arducam Camarray HAT:
The Camarray HAT is not sold alone for the following reasons:
Most of the cameras on the market are not designed for synched stereo uses. We’ve modified our camera modules specifically for the Camarry HAT. Your own V1, V2 or HQ camera modules won’t directly work with it.
The Camarray HAT requires different firmware for different Image sensors that are not natively working with your embedded systems. Your own OV9281 and OV7251 camera modules won’t directly work with it, and they are not easily interchangeable.
is required if you have extra requirements as the following:
You need the camera module to run on other Video Modes and Frame Rates.
You need to trigger the camera with an External Hardware trigger.
