Leopard Imaging IMX185 TX1 kit camera modes and framerates


I have recently acquired the IMX185 camera kit (as in topic). I flashed the board with files provided with the newest version of JetPack, previously changing them, as instructed by http://developer.download.nvidia.com/embedded/L4T/r24_Release_v2.0/Docs/Tegra_Linux_Driver_Package_Release_Notes_R24.2.pdf, to enable IMX185 support.

I am able to receive footage from the camera using nvcamerasrc, but gstreamer’s console output contains only one supported sensor mode: 1920x1080 30 fps. The software I am working on requires significantly higher framerates (120 fps is best) to function properly. The camera provided with the Jetson kit was capable of providing 720p@120fps, however, due to its miniature size, its low-light performance left much to be desired.

How can I get IMX185 to provide 120 fps footage?


You need to get the sensor setting from SONY to enable the 120fps.

Hi Shane.

Thank you for the response, I will try to obtain the datasheet.

In the meantime, could you tell me why has IMX185’s 1080p60 mode been disabled in the kernel sources (/drivers/media/i2c/imx185_mode_tbls.h)? Was it not working correctly?


I have no idea why this mode not enable, suppose this mode not bring up yet.
I think you can try to enable it and get detail information from Leopard.
