I initiate my recording like this from Python with picamera with the intention of using the binned mode where 4 pixels are combined into one for better light sensitivity.
Can I then be sure it is using binned mode or is it something more I need to do? Or is there any way for me to verify that the image is a binned full sensor video?
Code: Select all
camera.framerate = 8 camera.resolution = (1296, 730) camera.meter_mode = 'backlit' camera.start_recording('fileName', quality=20)
Also, the full resolution of the sensor, I belive, is 2592×1944.
That seem to indicate to me that if I divide those numbers by two I could just as well use resolution = (1296, 972) and still get a binned mode but with a bit more area covered? Is that correct?
