Reading DataReading Data

    DeviceRead["RaspiCam"]
    takes one picture with the camera.

    DeviceRead[dev]
    takes one picture with the camera.

  • DeviceRead takes an image of size 2592 by 1944. The output is an Image object.
  • DeviceRead["RaspiCam",{w,h}]
    takes one picture with the camera of width w and height h.

  • Custom-sized images can be taken by passing in w and h, which must both be Integers. w must range between 1 and 2592, while h must be between 1 and 1944, inclusive. If w or h exceeds its respective limits, it will default to the maximum value allowed.
