I have removed a NIR filter and replaced it with a blue filter to capture NIR image for NDVI response of vegetation. It worked well connecting with a laptop. But I am intending it to work with a smartphone. How can I do it?


Hi, at least a couple years ago, I looked into this and it seemed there are ways with a custom app, but only on some Android phones. I'm not sure if this is still the case.

Another way is to connect it to a Raspberry Pi, and then use some of the #raspberry-pi photography software (see maybe #pi-camera for more?), then connect to it from your smartphone over WiFi or Bluetooth.

I'd love to see a well-documented guide for this, maybe on the spectrometry page, if you figure it out! I'm sure others would be interested!!

If there are apps for it, could you please name one of them.
