I'm getting an error the second time I run camera.capture(output,'yuv'), what am I doing wrong?

my code:

from time import sleep
from picamera import PiCamera
from picamera.array import PiYUVArray
import numpy
w=64
h=48
camera=PiCamera()
output=PiYUVArray(camera)
camera.resolution=(w,h)
camera.start_preview()
sleep(2)
while True:
    print('output')
    camera.capture(output,'yuv')
    #some elaboration here
    sleep(10)

output:

output
output
Traceback (most recent call last):

  • That doesn't look like it's the full error (the actual error message is missing)

  • so if understood I should clear the output variable after my elaboration?
