It is possible, @etienne designed their own solution. We do not provide a solution for this at this time.

@ROV, one of our clients used an IP camera to connect a second camera to their BlueROV2. You can see their set-up, and the quality of the video from their second camera on their website.

Basically, all you need is a mini-switch between the RPI and the Fathom-X, and there are a few solutions out there on the market. The second camera is mounted in a 4" tube which was used in lieu of the standard 3" battery tube. The quality is breathtaking. The drawback with their setup is that there is less room for batteries, so they have to use a smaller battery. I have to warn you that the camera is expensive, I believe in the 7-800€ range.

I’m theoretically using one servo input and a pair of tether wires to run an analog camera with a servo input switcher. 3 total additional cameras, one for the arm, one rear one, and theoretically one downward facing one.
