PS3 Eye

De Pontão Nós Digitais

The PS3 eye camera is a useful webcam that is cheap yet fast enough for many practical purposes. At Lab Macambira we use it for projects such as the AirHackTable.

Controlling the Parameters

This information may be obsolete, but here it is:

List all available V4L control of the driver :

v4l2-ctl -d /dev/video0 -l

View actual control value :

v4l2-ctl -d /dev/video0 -C [gain, exposure, vflip .....]

Set control value :

v4l2-ctl -d /dev/video0 -c  [gain=xx, exposure=yy, vflip=z .....]

TIP: You must set autogain=0 before to set other controls like gain or exposure.

Useful settings (using modprobe, but can be set using v4l as above as well)

modprobe -r gspca_ov534      #to remove the module
modprobe gspca_ov534 videomode=14 autogain=0 exposure=60

(to load the driver with a 320×240 resolution and fixed exposure at 75 fps)
