Pi camera

Tue Jan 14, 2020 8:21 pm

Hi,

How do you turn off the pi camera preview when you have opened it from the terminal? I've tried to do it using ctrl C but it doesn't work for me.

Thanks
Emma

In case of using raspivid/raspistill:

Code: Select all

$ raspivid | grep nopreview
-n, --nopreview	: Do not display a preview window
$ raspistill | grep nopreview
-n, --nopreview	: Do not display a preview window
$
