I am writing an AI program in Python on a raspberry pi, where I need to access raw individual pixel values from a raspberry pi camera. I really don't want to save the picture, I want to process the raw pixel information from one pixel to the next.

  • How is the image data stored? What module are you using to load/capture the image? The way to access pixel RGB values varies according to the datatype. – user96931 May 24 '19 at 18:38
  • I am using a raspberry pi 3 B+. The datatype I would like to use is RGB. I am hoping I don't have to store the image data. – E. G. F. May 25 '19 at 0:31

    There isn't any known way (that I could find) to access the Pi Camera's data before it saves, however this answer talks about making a RAM disk and saving the image to that, so it's never truly saved in storage. – Patrick Cook May 28 '19 at 1:49
