I'm trying to shoot some .raw pictures and I'd like to test both the rgb and the yuv option.

What I've obtained so far is a not usable file/image. Meaning that once I open the it with Photoshop, for example, I can only see a scrambled black and white image.

Here's the code using 'rgb':

import time
import picamera
campic = 1

def take_picture(campic):
    print("Take picture", campic)
    filename = "/home/pi/insect" + str(campic) + ".raw"

    with picamera.PiCamera() as camera:
        camera.resolution = (1920, 1088)
        camera.start_preview()
        time.sleep(2)
        camera.capture(filename, 'rgb')
        time.sleep(0.5)
        camera.stop_preview()

for i in range(3): # starting with 3 pics to try

    take_picture(campic)
    time.sleep(5)
    campic = campic + 1

Any idea on how to fix it would be greatly appreciated, thanks! :)
