Hi, great to see that camera is working :slight_smile: Could you please give more information:

  • which camera (where to buy, URL would be great)?
  • which image you’re using; Raspbian or Ubuntu?
  • is the camera driver already build into the image? If not how to install it?

Many thanks in advance! Best regards MK_Munich

Hi Jackzeng, I downloaded the Raspbain image and burned it on an SD card and booted my Zero. It is amazing, that the CPU temperature remains cool.

Is it possible to copy the SD card to eMMC during running on Zero and to boot from eMMC lateron?

Best regards MK_Munich

Hello, both images are support camera

I use ov5640 camera, you can contact our sales to buy it.

yes, it was built in image, so you can use camera directly.

And Bpi-M2 Zero doesn’t have emmc.

you can find more infos in our wiki:
