We bought this board and camera from I am using OpenCV 2.4.2 what I successfully compiled on that board. The operating system is Linaro: Linaro 12.11 (GNU/Linux 3.0.35-2026-geaaf30e-02070-g705bf58 armv7l) (downloaded from as well).

I tried few examples using the camera (facedetection) and it works fine with USB webcam (some logitech HD cam). However it doesn't work with the OV5642 camera. The camera works with gstreamer. It doesn't work with standard linux video utilites so I guess it's not complatible with video4linux2. I tried to run luvcview and I don't have a picture from that, however it says it supports some video modes.

Is it possible to make this camera working in OpenCV, (so I can grab an uncompressed images in loop) ?


Thank you,
