Camera recommendations

Can anyone recommend a CSI camera that would work smoothly with nvarguscamerasrc on both AGX and NX, other than Raspberry Pi cameras?

Some expectations on the software side:

  • fairly easy to install drivers, best as .deb.
  • no need to recompile/reflash the kernel
  • manufacturer is quick quick to follow latest L4T releases
  • decent support from manufacturer

Would be even better, if it was supported by L4T kernel out of the box.

Happy to listen about your experience with specific brands and models.

hello ms32035,

there’s a list of camera that supported by Jetson Camera Partners on the Jetson platform.
you might also access L4T sources via download center.
please check $L4T_Sources/r32.4.3/Linux_for_Tegra/source/public/kernel/nvidia/drivers/media/i2c/*, for default supported camera drivers.

Thank you @JerryChang, but already had some bad experience with cameras from the list and found that the reality was quite different.

hello ms32035,

you surprise me.
may I have more details, or, do you have any suggestions for sharing to us to have improvements.

currently working with the vendor to resolve the issues, but can share some updates later

However, regarding the list, info if libargus is supported would certainly be useful

hello ms32035,

please refer to Camera Architecture Stack, you may enable nvarguscamerasrc to works with libargus.
please also note that, only bayer sensors could access the path into [Camera Core] block.
