I have a Raspberry Pi Camera (F), Supports Night Vision, Adjustable-Focus and I wanted to use that to make a timelapse of some plants in python.
python code for taking a snapshot:
camera = PiCamera() camera.resolution = (1920, 1440) time.sleep(0.5) camera.capture('uploads/demo.jpg') camera.close()
I thought that the camera will produce normal picture in daylight and using the IR filter with the additional IR LEDs at night.
Now the images I get in broad daylight look like normal IR images:
Is it possible to toggle the IR? I thought that the integrated brightness sensors would alread do that, but apparently the image itself is still infrared-ish even the IR-Leds aren't turned on.
Is there a way to use it as normal camera? Couldn't find any settings in the picamera library for that.
