Re: Pure Python camera interface

picamera *should* work fine with older firmwares but I don't explicitly test them (the test suite already takes a good 30+ minutes to run!) Generally speaking, firmware updates are only important if you care about new functionality or bug fixes introduced by them. Firmware updates are applied (and ...

Re: Pure Python camera interface

Try "rgba" instead. There is an MMAL setting for "argb" but for some reason it doesn't work with the resizer output which I use for raw captures (just as the "rgb" and "bgr" don't (directly) work - but I figured those were important enough to write an emulation for, which is why they're so slow as ...

Re: Pure Python camera interface

I read somewhere (documentation site is down at the moment) that capturing in argb format was faster as that was more of a native format - but when I tried that in the call to capture() it didn't like it. In fact, although "rgb" works, when I look at the code where the complaint came from, it doesn'...

Re: apt-get install & "No Module named picamera"

When you run "sudo apt-get install python-picamera" what do you see (can you paste it in here? If you SSH into your Pi it should be simple to copy'n'paste it). If the package is indeed installed it should simply refuse to install it again. *sigh* My fault. I had installed it, but then because I did...

Re: apt-get install & "No Module named picamera"

Any chance you've installed the python 2 package and you're using python 3 (or vice versa)? If you've done "sudo apt-get install python-picamera" that only installs the python 2 version of the package. The python 3 version is installed with "sudo apt-get install python3-picamera". I can confirm wit...

apt-get install & "No Module named picamera"

As per the documentation for Raspbian, I used the apt-get route to install the Python 2.7 version of picamera. Unfortunately I'm getting No module named picamera when I try to import it. The installation instructions don't appear to mention any final step required... any idea what I might be missing...
