I have the Raspberry pi camera v 2.1 and I want to take photos for 30 minutes at a speed of 30 fps or less, but I want to be able to vary it. So far I have achieved it with "picamera" and using camera.capture. I have seen in other answers that using camera.capture_sequence, but I can't save them in a folder. If someone can help me I would be infinitely grateful.

  • I have achieved it - congratulations, what's the problem?

1 Answer 1


30 photos per second won't be possible on a Pi. This is something you can expect from a high-end digital camera like Canon EOS R3, not from a cheap camera module with MIPI interface driven by Linux.
