Camera Wetness

By: panzersnake , 12:21 AM GMT on May 11, 2014

Well, apparently my attempt at a protective housing for the camera module wasn't 100% waterproof.

The other sensors are working though, so I'll hope that the board dries out and everything works tomorrow. I've stopped the webcam jobs for now.

Yes, I was using raspistill on the command line to run the webcam until it got hosed by the storm:

raspistill -vf -hf -w 640 -h 480 -n -t 100 -q 15 -e jpg -th none -o /home/pi/pi-weather-station/experimental/webcam/im age.jpg

It worked OK, but I'll probably have to tune those settings once I'm done with the new enclosure

I'll grab another camera module if I have to. Lame though
