Does the HQ Camera Need Extra Setup?

Sat Jul 31, 2021 8:27 pm

I have purchased the HQ Camera and was wondering if any extra setup beyond enabling the camera in raspi-config is needed? I’ve not found anything indicating that that is the case.
Helpful answers are appreciated.

No. Why do you think it is different?

Not sure whether enabling camera automatically enables I2C as well -- I2C needs to be enabled for camera to work.

I saw something about running a command like this:

Code: Select all

sudo rpi-update
and thought that it was a necessary thing to do. The library used is still the same as for the regular Pi Camera V2 etc?

No it doesn't when being driven from the firmware.
