Another way i do it is with OpenCv, you can also modify images with OpenCv such as draw images,
import numpy as np
from PIL import Image
def cv2_to_pil(img): #Since you want to be able to use Pillow (PIL)
return Image.fromarray(cv2.cvtColor(img, cv2.COLOR_BGR2RGB))
return cv2.cvtColor(np.array(img), cv2....
picamera.capture() can be used to capture the image to a stream-like object (an io.BytesIO stream) or even directly to a numpy array.
An example from here shows how to do it and gives important notes to the resolution (rounding up the requested resolution). It is necessary to keep this rounding in mind when allocating a buffer object as it must be large ...
I doubt there is a definite answer to that. This lens is an OEM device and to my knowledge the Foundation's documentation does not provide any details about the lens, it's holder and their mechanical interface.
Why am I asked to move to a different standard?
I would contribute that to the availability of standard lenses of a different size, e.g. M12. ...
I had the same problem. My Pi Zero W worked fine for 10 hours or so and then various kernel panic messages. The errors would get more frequent and at a point I could no longer connect to the Pi.
It looks like the Pi is under-volted for this job.
After some investigation I solved this by adding the following lines to the file /boot/config.txt
