Day 18: Installing the camera

I followed the instructions described in the Mod my Pi blog:

First step: Update the system:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
sudo apt-get autoremove

Second step: Enabling the camera

sudo raspi-config


Third step: Installing the camera

  • Shutted down the system, removed the power cable, video cable, sd card, etc
  • Followed James Adams’ video at YouTube:

Fourth step: Taking pictures

raspistill -o raspbox.jpg


We can also shot videos:

raspivid -o video.h264 -t 5000

These programs have several options for setting resolution, file format, etc
