can't figure out how to get button to work with my pi camera

Sat Aug 11, 2018 3:25 am

I'm new to the raspberry pi and cant figure out how to get this button working using the GPIO pins.

the code I script I made for taking the pictures

import os
import picamera


try:
os.stat('/home/pi/photos')
except OSError:
print "Creating the photos directory under /home/pi..."
os.makedirs('/home/pi/photos')
files = os.listdir('/home/pi/photos/')
howmany = files.__len__()
camera = picamera.PiCamera()
camera.resolution = (2592, 1944)
if howmany > 0:
camera.capture('/home/pi/photos/Picture' + str(howmany) + '.jpg')
else:
camera.capture('/home/pi/photos/Picture.jpg')

Can someone amend my code for the GPIO or tell me how to go about it.

There is an example here using the gpiozero python library module installed by default in recent versions of the Raspbian Operating System.

(If the link does not take you to the correct part of the document, look for the section headed 2.7. Button controlled camera.)
