Re: Pure Python camera interface

Alright, thanks guys. I'll read through the links and work on my comprehension. As an aside note, I get an error when trying to use this new "annotate_text" function. Says picamera.exc.PiCameraMMALError: Failed to set annotation status: Function not implemented I have checked a few times that my ins...

Re: Pure Python camera interface

Hello all, and especially Dave. I've been busy at class through the summer so I'm just now back and catching up with the development of the Pi and Picamera. I see that there is some rudimentary development now into simple cases of motion detection with the camera and this library? Can anyone point m...

Re: Installing OpenCV with Pi Cam Board Compatability

Thanks ghans, I ran that command once I started over. Pretty easy to mess up the order of things when you are a Linux/RPi noobie.

Re: Installing OpenCV with Pi Cam Board Compatability

Thanks for the tips! I'm working on 6by9's suggestion now. I'll see how that goes and report back in a few hours I guess. Okay, one more question I guess. When running the commands suggested in that thread: sudo apt-get install build-essential cmake pkg-config python-dev libgtk2.0-dev libgtk2.0 zlib...

Installing OpenCV with Pi Cam Board Compatability

Hello all, sorry for bothering you. I have been trying over the last two days or so to get OpenCV up and running on my Raspberry Pi for a motion detection project I am working on. There are plenty of great resources that I have stumbled upon for this, but many of them are outdated or conflicting and...

Re: Pure Python camera interface

Thank you for the clarification! I must have misinterpreted that other discussion. Do you think it is possible to use picamera on the ArchLinux ARM distro? I'm finding that a faster loading time supplied by ArchLinux and systemd would also be a nice improvement for my application that runs upon star...

Re: Pure Python camera interface

Hi - are you by any chance running a recent firmware? (i.e. have you done "sudo rpi-update" recently?). The reason I ask if I've been experimenting with the new firmware for the new modes and one of the tests that's failing under it is to do with shutter speed. It seems that somewhere around revisi...

Re: Pure Python camera interface

Dave, I seem to have an issue where any time I ask the camera to use it's .capture() method I get an image that is much darker than what the preview uses or what I get when I set the video photo capture setting to true. Do you know why that may be? I should mention I am using the camera model withou...

Re: Pure Python camera interface

Hello Dave! First of all, I would just like to say, thank you so much for all the work you have put forth in this project. I cannot even imagine how exhausting and troublesome all of this work and troubleshooting has been for you. I am sure I speak for all of us who use it when I express how deeply ...
