Add support for raspberry pi camera V3

Add support for raspberry pi camera V3


I'm assuming that camera is supported in the newer bullseye raspberry OS, which the Octopi 1.0.0rc4 version is based on. You will still more than likely have to install a different streaming service on the pi, like camera-streamer or go2rtc because of the IMX chipset.

I've been 2 days trying to configure this camera for Octoprint and I've been unable, both as in the stable version as in the bullseye based nightly, I've tried different ways and solutions like the camera-streamer and I can only get it to work in the terminal, but not in Octoprint, has anyone got something else?

If you get it working in terminal I wouldn't think it would be that difficult to get working in the OctoPrint interface. You will definitely have to disable the webcamd service for starts. I know Char in the OctoPrint Discord server got it working with an IMX219 camera.

This guys instructions worked for me.


is there some update about support of raspberry pi camera V3?
I saw some note in New OctoPi Release: 1.0.0 ( Please note that OctoPi 1.0.0 does not yet include support for the new Raspberry Pi Camera v3. However, we are actively working on a webcam stack swap that will allow us to support libcamera based cameras like that one and also newer Arducams. A test image built on top of OctoPi 1.0.0 via OctoPi-UpToDate with that should hopefully be available within the next two weeks!)

Thank you for your feedback.

I am waiting for if because i buy my first rapsberry with this cam V3.

You can find the mentioned testing build in the below issue:

It's progressing well so far, in my opinion.

Hi All,

Is the Raspberry cam 3 now supported in octoprint ?

The testing image is here:

To actually answer your question, no, not yet but apparently soon. There are still issues being worked around in the testing image. You can follow the progress at that link.
