pi 2 says cam 2 is 5MP cam 1

Thu Apr 27, 2017 3:38 am

My pi 2 says my 8MP camera 2.1 is a 5MP camera 1.3

No matter how I apt-get update and reboot, it still shows up as 5MP.
the jpg properties in windows show a camera RP_OV5647.
Shows fstop f/2 which is correct for the 8MP cam. The old 5MP shows f/2.9
focal len: 3mm. The old cam is 4mm. So, correct here too.

raspstill -o file.jpg takes 5MP pics.

Run raspistill with no parameters and it will tell you an application version number. What is it?
"vcgencmd version" will give you a firmware version. What is it?
"uname -a" will give you a kernel version. What is it?

For all we know you may still be on an old Wheezie release, in which case updates will be pretty scarce.
There was a bug fixed at the end of Feb, but that wouldn't have quite the symptoms you're seeing. App version >= 1.3.11 would confirm that it's not that.

The camera is actually an 8MP ver 2.1. I have several, I tried another 2.1 camera, same problem.

raspistill:
app ver. 1.3.8

vcgencmd version:
version 1bf9a9a77026af9128a339c82d72e331d3532ee4 (clean) (release)

uname -a
Linux (my hostname...) 4.1.19+ #858 Tue Mar 15 15:52:03 GMT 2016 armv6l GNU/Linux

We've been a bit lax there in updating the app version, but prior to 24 Jan 2017 https://github.com/raspberrypi/userland ... cc1a226367

Checking the firmware history, that's Fri Mar 11 17:20:46 2016 +0000

That date says it all. We're about to migrate off 4.4 onto 4.9.

So much for up to date then. Have I guessed right that you're still on Wheezy?
If you're forced to stay on Wheezy then build userland for yourself

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install cmake
git checkout https://github.com/raspberrypi/userland.git
cd userland
./buildme

I don't remember what version.
But /etc/deb says 8.0.
Anyway, I guess its time to rebuild.
Thanks.

What does /etc/apt/sources.list contain? That's where apt-get will be looking for sources.
I'd expect it to read

Code: Select all

deb http://mirrordirector.raspbian.org/raspbian/ jessie main contrib non-free rpi
or similar.

So wheezy. Support for that was dropped over a year ago. I would strongly suggest you download the latest Jessie release.
