Computer for RP HQ camera

by nytmr24 on Fri Apr 30, 2021 6:56 pm

I purchased a RPi HQ (12 MP) camera for a project with the idea that I was going to control the camera with a RPi Zero. When I got the Zero, I noticed that its camera port is CSI, which is not compatible with the HQ camera. I cannot switch cameras, so I need to switch controllers. I know that I can use a RPi3 to control the camera. Question: Is there a smaller computer that can adapt to the HQ camera and control it? Or, is there any way to adapt the camera to the Zero?

There is a compatible cable for the Pi Zero's smaller CSI port.

A Pi A+ or 3A+ would be the next smallest Pi that would work. I have several of the V2 cameras running on 3A+'s. My HQ camera is currently attached to a Pi 4B. I wanted the best performance I could get.

I use an HQ camera on a Pi ZeroW with the adapter cable reference above. It works fine.
