Most camera are pretty power hungry - they need to do a lot of work - 1080pp0 is a lot of data to first get then throw around. It's interesting to note that the GPU encoder is extremely efficient, and takes less power than the camera itself....pluggy wrote:Mmmm never thought of power, maybe its time to put a meter across the test points with the camera on. 280mA is a tad greedy.......
It's odd that removing the adapter means things change - there should be no interaction between the USB/networking and the camera code, which is why I thought it might be power related. Can you try a different USB cable with the more powerful supply, just in case one's a bit pants.icementhols wrote:After the comments about the power i checked the adapter that was being used:
output: DC5.2V 500mA max:650mA
Not great eh! so I've now tested it using two different adapters, both having outputs of:0.5V - 1.0A and still the same issue.
edit: also, no wireless adapter connected, just the power adapter, camera and ethernet cable and connecting via ssh to console.
I'm truly flummoxed here.
Anything with a decent ampage (I'd go for 1A although I get away with my Kindle charger at 0.85) that doesn't fade voltage as the current demand increases.icementhols wrote:I tried different cables to no avail. What power adapters are recommended?
