Overview

Congratulations on selecting the Raspberry Pi and the Raspberry Pi Camera. You have made a great choice. With the many new hardware accessories you will have ample opportunity to expand the capabilities of your computer.

Control your Raspberry Pi Camera from the Pi console OR a remote Windows PC OR a Debian-Linux PC. You will be able to use WiFi to run your camera. Virtually all of the Pi Camera options are controllable from the control panel created. You can take VIDEO or STILL pictures, adjust the setting, save the image to a file on the Raspberry Pi. You can view the VIDEO as the Pi Camera sends the image stream to your PC. STILL pictures can be saved on the Raspberry Pi and viewed on your PC. With this program you don't have to remember all the camera commands, just select the options you want. The program is written using Python 3.2.3. The complete SOURCE CODE is included. Go ahead and take control of your Pi Camera.

As you have probably seen the popularity of this computer is rapidly growing. The addition of the Pi Camera brings the Raspberry Pi to a very useful state. I originally purchased the Pi Camera to be used on my robots, and I am very happy with it. Of course many people want to use the Pi Camera and Raspberry for security purposes and as nanny cameras to name just two options.

Control of the Pi Camera from a command prompt line requires a pretty good memory or cheat sheet. When you consider that you want to run the Pi Camera from a remote PC the memory level you need is expanded. So not having that great of a memory I wrote the program provided in this book to take virtually complete control of the Pi Camera. When you finish the program and procedures included you will be able to run your Raspberry Pi and the Pi camera from a remote PC without a monitor, keyboard or mouse connected to the Raspberry Pi.

This book includes the complete source code that you need to complete the Python program. There are third party modules that need to be downloaded, they are currently free. The book contains instructing for obtaining them.
