  • Multi-Camera Solution: Designed mainly for Raspberry pi ZERO, up to two 5MP OV5647/8MP IMX219/ 12.3MP IMX477/12MP IMX708 cameras connected. No mixing allowed.
  • Alternative Work: Only one of the two cameras can be activated at a time, and they are working in alternate ways.
  • Easy to Operate: A simple software built to run two cameras.
  • Compatibility: It also can be used for other Raspberry Pi boards with minor software modifications.

Overview

This multi-camera adapter board is designed for Raspberry pi ZERO and allows you connect two 5MP or 8MP or 12MP cameras to Pi Zero. Only one of the two cameras can be activated at a time, and they are working in alternate ways. We build a simple software that can run two cameras and make it looks like working at the same time. But the drawback is the frame rate, and resolution will be fairly low, which may be mainly useful for surveillance.
Please note that the Raspberry Pi multi-camera adapter board is a nascent product that may have some stability issues and limitations because of the cable’s signal integrity and RPi’s closed source video core libraries, so your project may get some risks. This version supports the 8MP Pi camera board. And it also can be used for other Raspberry Pi boards with minor software modifications.

Applications

  • IoT cameras
  • Robot cameras
  • Wildlife cameras
  • 3D scanner, multi camera sync solution, etc.

Features

  • Fit Raspberry Pi zero to connect 2 x 5MP or 8MP or 12MP cameras.
  • Only one of the two cameras can be activated at a time, and they are working in alternate ways.
  • A simple software built to run two cameras and make it looks like working at the same time.
  • It also can be used for other Raspberry Pi boards with minor software modifications.

Package Including

  • 1 x Arducam Multi-Camera Adapter Doubleplexer Stereo Module V2 for Raspberry Pi Zero, Pi 3/3 b+, 4b
  • 1 x 73mm 15-22pin FPC cable

Note

  • The default usage of this product is taking still pictures, and when it is used to store videos, the frame rate will be reduced.
⚠️ Raspberry Pi Touch Display (DSI interface) Compatibility Issues

When you use a DSI display together with this adapter, you will encounter the issue of I2C conflicts. We recommend you use HDMI displays or run headless when using this adapter.

⚠️ Camera Module Compatibility

The Arducam Multi-camera adapters ONLY support 3 kinds of camera modules by default:

  • 5MP OV5647 (V1.3)
  • 8MP IMX219 (V2.1)
  • 12MP IMX477 (HQ)
  • 12MP IMX708(Raspberry Pi Camera Module 3)

ALL other MIPI camera modules intended to be used with Arducam multi-camera adapters needs extra customization. Extra fees may occur.

⚠️ Resolution and Framerate Compatibility

If you need the cameras to run at a certain resolution or framerates, please request customization. Extra fees may occur.

Blueswarm: Decentralized Robotic Fish Swarm Together Which uses Arducam Multi-camera Adapter and Raspberry Pi

The natural world abounds with self-organizing collectives, where large numbers of relatively simple agents use local interactions to produce impressive global behaviors. Well-known examples include social insect colonies, bird flocks, and fish schools. Mathematicians and engineers have strived to understand the mapping from local interactions onto global behaviors and vice versa in a quest to […]
