Brightness increases on its own

Fri Sep 14, 2018 3:52 pm

The title says it all really.

I've got a few Pis with cameras as security cameras running RPi web interface.

On one of the Pis, sometimes, the brightness creeps up over the course of several hours until the image is completely white. If I stop the camera and restart it, the image goes back to normal.

I've checked all my settings. I'm not sure if this is a H/W problem or S/W. Has anyone seen it before?

Cheers
Andy

You could change the cameras around. To see if the problem is in your hardware or software.

And is the environment for all the cameras the same?

Found it. At some point, I must have set Exposure Mode to off instead of Auto :/
