Re: RPi Cam Web Interface

Hmmm... Over a period of 48 hours the banding came slowly back and in the end Motion refused to work any more; somehow there's something not stable. Re-flashed the card and made a copy of it with the fresh RPi Cam Web Interface install so I can maybe check differences when things go bad again.

Re: Still confused, whats the diff between these 2 cameras?

The small one is a rouge copy of the official camera. The larger more expensive one has a lensmount that enables you to changes lenses and comes with a longer (more tele) lens than the standard package. Be advised that the larger one has the sensor separate from the lens and the sensor is just mount...

Re: RPi Cam Web Interface

For who's interested: I slightly changed the RPi Cam files to try and make them more phone-friendly. The idea is to use the camera with a battery and a WiFi access point on location. With the phone you can easily frame the picture. You could for instance place it somewhere and wait for animals to sh...

Re: RPi Cam Web Interface

I'd definitely would start with a fresh image, had all sorts of troubles before but it's now running for more than 24 hours without a glitch. I've no problems at night when using -ex night exposure mode although that will revert to 1 sec shutter speed and I get video clips of one frame, apparently b...

Re: PiCameraControl - Tethered Shooting with your DSLR

For timelapses the Pi Camera module is a good option as it has no mechanical shutter so it won't wear out and it costs only $25.

Re: RPi Cam Web Interface

I now started out with the latest 2014-1-7 Wheezy and the banding is gone while motion suddenly works. So I guess updating an older Wheezy, like I did before, has some issues. I'm now letting the Webcam run and see if I get a corrupted file system again after a few hours, guess not.

Re: RPi Cam Web Interface

OK, missed that, but I can't seem to mimic the ISO 1600 1 sec behaviour with normal raspistill, only with the web cam.

I have no banding on the -ex night shots, only with faster shutter speeds and mainly in the video. So it seems interference with higher shutter speeds, will look again tomorrow.

Re: RPi Cam Web Interface

I found something strange... I re-installed RPi Cam Web Interface and it's dark outside now. When I set the Exposure Mode to 'Night' the picture gets brighter than before (a few weeks ago) while the scene outside is the same. If I then take a still image the exif says 1 sec ISO 1600! And indeed, the...

Re: Saving Timelapse directly on remote server?

the images have a .jpg~ extension while written, so no problem with half-written ones. Try something like this (not tested, cut and pasted from a longer script), just fill in where the images are saved by raspistill and where they should be copied: #!/usr/bin/python import os import time # define co...

Re: Raspberry Pi Camera Board with CS mount Lens

That's correct, following your description you ruled out a faulty lens. Good thinking. It wasn't clear from what you wrote though, so I thought you rotated the board with everything fixed to it 180 degrees.

Now to find a way to get the sensor straight behind the lens.

Re: Raspberry Pi Camera Board with CS mount Lens

So let me get this straight: You took the first photo, then rotated the board 180 degrees and took the second photo; then rotated the last photo 180 degrees back again in a photo editor (or used the -hf -vf option on the Pi) to present them with the same orientation? If that's what you did I can see...

Re: Raspberry Pi Camera Board with CS mount Lens

Ran your test (swapped the whole mount round 180degrees) and the image looks exactly the same. So looks like it's definitely just misaligned then. Not sure I understand, so let's get thing straight: Assuming the sensor is misaligned, the top of the window in your normal photo is sharp and the botto...

The Lens is 6mm fix focus length, you can change to other focus length like 4mm or 16mm. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :shock: :? :( :( :( OK, on second thought, maybe they meant you can buy additional lenses to change the focal length, that would make sense.

Re: Raspberry Pi Camera Board with CS mount Lens

...but at about this point I think I pushed the sensor too hard against its own ribbon cable and it's now looking like a dead camera module, doh. Are you sure the little sensor connector ('Sunny' on the original board) is not dislodged? Got me puzzled for a while when fiddling around with the board...

Thanks, but I guess it's a bit outdated now since this popped up: http://www.raspberrypi.org/phpBB3/viewt ... 43&t=63276

Re: I am not a thief and I am in the minority!

I use HDs mainly to store RAW photos from my own camera (and I have a lot of HDs as photography is my job) while I pay the entertainment industry with each HD I buy to compensate them for 'lost copyrights due to copies of copyrighted material' as invoked by the government.

So who is the thief?

Re: Raspberry Pi Camera Board with CS mount Lens

BTW, I forgot to add the test method to see if the focal plane is right. It's basically very simple; you have to mount the board with one screw so you can rotate it 180 degrees. Then take two images of a three dimensional scene, like you did with the window, where one of them has the board rotated 1...

Re: Raspberry Pi Camera Board with CS mount Lens

The difference with the original camera board is that the original lens is screwed into the little plastic blob that holds the sensor where the alignment within the blob is based on factory tolerances. The plastic blob itself is not very well mounted to the green board, with sticky tape I guess. If ...
