Jetson Xavier NX Lesson 5: Improving Raspberry Pi Camera Image Quality in Gstreamer

In this video we show you the keys to radically improving the image quality from the Raspberry Pi Camera. We show how to set Gstreamer caps and props in OpenCV to get stunning image ‘pop’ from this inexpensive camera. If you follow this lesson you will be able to get better image quality from your Raspberry Pi cameras.

The code below has the improved camSet string we developed in this lesson. I have noticed that there can be variation between different Raspberry Pi cameras. Hence, you can adjust the parameters to get the best quality image from your particular camera. Also, results will depend on lighting conditions. You can adjust the wbmode to match your lighting situation, and you can tweak the contrast, brightness and saturation to dial in the perfect picture quality.
