splitter for flex cable on pi cam 2

by W_Dodge on Mon Oct 23, 2017 12:27 pm

Hello,

Is it possible to connect a splitter to the flex cable for the pi cam? Ultimately for the purpose of creating a switching mechanism that is controlled by the GPIO. To calculate NDVI (normalized difference vegetative index) I need to photograph a plant with a regular pi cam and then immediately photograph with a NoIR pi cam and perform some subsequent analysis.

Any thoughts on a splitter and switching mechanism for two pi cams that is controlled by the board GPIO?

Thanks much,

--Will

Possible, yes but not easy and we have nothing that would give you instructions on doing it. You would need two appropriate ribbon connectors and the logic chips to switch the necessary pins to activate the camera.
