Today’s blog post will take a short diversion from our recent trend of Deep Learning tutorials here on the PyImageSearch blog and instead focus on a topic that I’ve been receiving a ton of emails about lately — common errors when using the Raspberry Pi camera module.
I want to start this post by mentioning Dave Jones, the maintainer and chief contributor to the picamera library. Dave is one of the most active open source contributors that I’ve had the privilege to interact with (and he’s a hell of a nice guy too).
Each Friday is PiDay here at Adafruit! Be sure to check out our posts, tutorials and new Raspberry Pi related products. Adafruit has the largest and best selection of Raspberry Pi accessories and all the code & tutorials to get you up and running in no time!
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
