I think you are allowed to be biased. I will try Raspistill next time.

Thank you and everybody else in this thread for the help :)

Re: Pi Camera v2 image quality question

I had this same problem with MOTIONEYE when I tried to install motioneye on a pre-installed debian OS. When I used the motioneye's all-in-one ISO that is ready to go, the PI2 camera video is fine. But, like yours, when I try to do it manually, the image are over exposed / washed out like that. I co...

Re: Pi Camera v2 image quality question

You should not view an 8MP image at 100% and expect the kind of crisply defined edges from the v2 camera you'd get from a DSLR. That said, your particular device may well not be in optimal focus. All of the first v2 cameras produced seemed to be adjusted like a "selfie" camera, to work best at abou...

Re: Pi Camera v2 image quality question

What are you using to take the pictures? Does raspistill produce decent images? I am using motion eye ( I believe it uses MMAL?). Raspistill produces better pictures but not brilliant ones, as you can see in this full res sample: https://i.imgur.com/GctPr2Q.jpg https://i.imgur.com/GctPr2Q.jpg That ...

Re: Pi Camera v2 image quality question

I've had to host this elsewhere due to size restrictions - hopefully you can see what I mean about the oversaturation in daylight. This one is less blurry but if you look at the strap on the back of the man in the middle you can see what I mean. Actually, I see two different issues: 1. blown highli...

Re: Pi Camera v2 image quality question

This picture is too small to tell if it's blurry or not (and why). Could you post a full size image? In the meantime, I seem to notice a focus issue: distant objects are sharper than near subjects. I think the lens is focused at infinity by default; if your main usage consists in capturing scenes a...

Pi Camera v2 image quality question

Hi all, I recently recieved a Pi Camera V2 for Christmas and have been using it mostly with motion/motioneye. With the release of the Pi Zero W and the really neat camera case with it I have been trying it more and more out of the house but I have a few questions regarding image quality. Is it norma...

Re: Asus Tinker board

I like the idea of it (and the fact the Pi B+ layout appears to be a format/standard now as it's so good) but I worry that like other pi clones with hardware from less open manufacturers I worry support will be terrible. If you buy a Pi and an official Pi add on/HAT everything just works, and the su...

I've found webRTC support lacking with some mobile browsers, primarily iOS but I could be wrong - I am new to this. The best solution I found was running motionEye behind a Lighttpd proxy for SSL so the video would be encrypted/password protected and nobody could intercept the images by snooping wi...

Re: Is UV4L the best way to steam to the web?

RpiName really ought to declare his interests as one of the uv4l developers/maintainers (not sure exactly which, but he's the main one to provide for support for it here). That doesn't make it a bad product, but is likely to bias his responses. WebRTC has a few limitations itself, particularly if y...

Re: Is UV4L the best way to steam to the web?

1) UV4L appears to be closed source, do other people recommend using it with this in mind? I can't find detailed info on the authors. Being closed source does not really bother many people. People care about things that just work. Keep in mind that part of the GPU firmware controlling the camera an...

Before you insert the card into the pi, create the 'ssh' file on the boot partition and it should only be a minor inconvenience.
I know, it's just an inconvenience really.

I think the simplicity of it may be the best part. It forces you to focus on the hardware and also removes a lot of complications. No need to be sure to do a safe shutdown, no need to sudo apt-get update/upgrade etc just you, the arduboy and a single program with visual and (hopefully) fun results. ...

As it has a screen/speakers built in it seems like a very good way to make many different projects without having to plug/solder things. May be a way to get older kids doing a...
