Change camera parameters on the fly (i2c)

Hi, we are using board based on QSB with camera ov5640, but I think this applies globally.

I would like to change specific camera parameters on the fly, without stopping video camera. For example, I have changed default i2c configuration values in ov5640.c driver, so that it goes into night mode (after reading datasheet on how to do it) when initialized. But now I would like to change one value in one of camera's i2c registers on the fly, but it doesn't work.

I have tried to add a character device interface for camera driver and then from there call the internal ov5640_write_reg() function, but it doesn't work this way. The i2c_master_send() returns -5. Does the driver somehow closes connection after it has sent initial parameters or is it blocking i2c?

Can someone help me please?



Thank you.
