I am looking to capture high definition images of small objects (insects) close to the camera in a rigid setup. The camera will be fixed to a position that is 3-9 cm (exact distance to be determined) away from the subject.
Currently, the camera cannot focus on the insects at the specified range, so the images are too blurry to use in AI applications like classification. Is there any way to adjust the camera’s focus either through software or hardware so the images are focused?
I have tried other image enhancement options such as adjusting the sharpness, camera exposure, Jpeg quality, and bitrate but these tunable parameters were unable to increase the details of the close-up subject in a significant way. Other than the above settings and camera focus, are there any other methods you would suggest me try out to improve image quality?
If using this camera to perform the task I have in mind is a lost cause, I would greatly appreciate it if you could recommend any camera that is compatible with this board that may be suitable for my task. Alternatively, any other camera-board module similar to the AMB82 MINI would work too.
Thank you for your assistance.
