I love the work that you guys are doing and am genuinely excited about the journey that I am on learning how to use my OAKs.
I was an OAK backer and purchased 2xOak1 and 2xOakD.
I am particularly keen to combine RPi HQ camera and the OAK1.
My understanding is that this is 'in progress' with #136:
DepthAI Pipeline Builder Gen2 #136 https://github.com/luxonis/depthai/issues/136
Looking through the Luxonis website I saw the BW1098FFC Body Kit:
My impression is that this is essentially the BW1098FFC without the cameras?
DepthAI: USB3C with Modular Cameras https://shop.luxonis.com/collections/all/products/depthai-usb3-edition
My understanding is that I could connect the 'BW1098FFC Body Kit' to the HQ Cam via the (alpha status) IMX477 adapter, and that doing this would give me features advertised on the adapter's shop page: https://shop.luxonis.com/products/rpi-hq-camera-imx477-adapter-kit
Question 1 : Is my understanding correct?
I am just wanting to be clear as the text on that page only refers to connecting the adapter with DepthAI FFC Edition/USB3C with Modular Cameras. Perhaps there is some subtle difference (or obvious and I am just missing it! 🙂 )
Question 2 : Assuming that my understanding is correct, and I connect up the BW1098FFC Body Kit, HQ Cam and IMX477 adapter; is my understanding also correct for the following;
- a) I could just connect the USB-C cable to my RPi4 as normal and use it just as I currently do with my OAK1? (as appears to be the case in your demo video)
- b) that the new HQ Camera essentially acts a 'drop-in' hardware replacement? For example, the OAK test scripts don't need to be modified; you can connect the adapter and camera and run the demo script and you are up and running?
Question 3 : Are all of the items in stock?
Thank you again for the work you are doing and I look forward to hearing from you.
