Is full FoV possible when video port is enabled?

Wed Jan 14, 2015 6:06 pm

Hello, I have hard time understanding the table here:

http://picamera.readthedocs.org/en/rele ... mera-modes

When it says FoV = Full, does that mean we can get full FoV both in image and video? Or does it mean full FoV only on image port?

I cannot get full FoV when I set camera resolution to 2592x1944 and enable video port using "use_video_port" flag. But I can get full FoV when I disable use_video_port flag. My code is like this:

Code: Select all

import io
import picamera

with picamera.PiCamera() as camera:
    camera.resolution = (2592, 1944)
    camera.capture("output.jpg", format='jpeg', use_video_port=True)
