I am having problems with a wildlife cam project I am working on.

setup: Pi Zero W Stretch 2018-11-13 Pikrellcam with settings: 1024x768 12 fps 3,5 Mbitrate

However, the pi frequently freezes. I have tried different PSUs and cables I have tried using fresh SD cards of good quality I have disabled as much power hungry components as possible, e.g. hdmi etc

Now I found this post (https://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/viewtopic.php?t=212777) where they were running RPI cam interface and had similar problems and they changed the config.txt and added:

over_voltage=4

force_turbo=1

The questions: 1. Does anyone have similar experiences with a similar setups as mine? Solutions?

2. What exactly does the above change in the config.txt DO?

I am currently trying this out but would like know more.
