The Seeeduino Store page with the OV5640 camera description claims the following:
The sensor comes with an auto-focusing function to help users take clear photos and videos more easily. The auto-focusing function can automatically adjust the focus distance, ensuring that the captured images and videos are always clear and sharp.
However, I cannot get it to work. Seeed Studio doesn’t seem to offer any sample code, and I also tried the “OV5640 Auto Focus for ESP32 Camera” library, modifying the pins for the XIAO, but the auto-focus functions failed.
There is an “AF_VCC” listed on the expansion board schematic, so I assume the power for the voice coil motor is being supplied to the module.
Can someone explain to me how to get the autofocus working, please, preferably with a working code sample? I’m reviewing the ESP32S3 Sense board for my YouTube channel, and wish to address this issue in the video.
