Problem with taking pictures using Picamera

Thu May 16, 2019 10:38 am

Hi ,
I have RasberryPi 3 with Camera V2

When i try to take a picture using Raspstill (From python)- the picture is OK.
When i try to take a picture using Picmaera.capture- The picture is corrupted

Does anyone know what is the difference between the Raspistiil and Picamera (Why with Raspistill the picture is OK and with Picamera it's Not)?
What are the defaults camera setting in raspistill Vs Picamera (maybe this is my problem)?
Does anyone have the source code for Raspistill ?

Your help will be very much appreciated !
