What do you mean by ZeroCam? Not a term I am familiar with. We have sold two cameras for the CSI port, the original the OV5647 and the current one, a Sony sensor (IMX219?). Don't think either were called the Zerocam.mikenf wrote: ↑Wed Aug 02, 2017 10:17 amHi Jamesh, PI CSI is probably ok because other camera ZeroCam works on the same PI. You can be right if ZeroCam does not use CAM_GPIO0 (CAM_EN).
I'm doing it mainly for fun. I have learned a lot of fun things about camera and PI. Also I hope my posts could help other people in the feature.
You are right about the cost of time
I bought ZeroCam on ThePiHut https://thepihut.com/collections/raspbe ... ry-pi-zero. It is third party 5MP camera.
Looks like the OP means the standard 5MP OV5647 camera with the alternative ribbon cable?
I just found the same looking camera on https://shop.pimoroni.com/products/rasp ... era-module.

I had this same problem. connector J2 needed to be push all the way down onto the board.m0ezp wrote: ↑Fri Jun 09, 2017 8:58 amHi 6by9,
Many thanks for confirming it must be a hardware/connection issue and I understand now that it's not related to the original issue.
Please forgive me for asking a further question as you mentioned a small connector on the camera board. I've just taken photos below - I couldn't spot it at first but I presume its J2 on the camera side. I've had a good look and it seems firmly connected - is that the one?
Thanks again in advance,
