Re: HDMI output only lasts 12 minutes with RPi 4B (it isn't the screen saver)

It is AC -> DC 12V powered
As far as I know it doesn't have a protection like that. The screen remains on in flat blue with a "no signal" label
With RPi 3 I never had to worry about HDMI settings

Re: HDMI output only lasts 12 minutes with RPi 4B (it isn't the screen saver)

The problem here is that the screen is 1280x800. So the output is trimmed, no top bar
What about the CEA mode 4? 1280x720
I tried group 1, mode 4 and the top bar is half displayed
Thank you

I was previously planning on using Imagemagick to stack five exposures (at 6s each). Now I don't think I'll need to do any stacking at all.
Did you think that stacking five exposures at 6s each would give you a 30 secs exposure image?

Wide angle but not fish-eye lens

I need a recommendation about a camera with a wide angle lens, not a fish-eye, 5MP at least.
I see offers for 160°, 170°, 180° field of view. It is too much for me, I would like something between 90° and 120° horizontal field of view.
Thanks in advance.
