Use your smartphone to trigger the Raspberry Pi Camera Module 3 to take photos using a simple Python library and accompanying Android app.
The new Raspberry Pi Camera Module 3 offers exceptional image quality and a choice between a standard (75 degrees) and wide (120 degrees) lenses. Best of all, we now have autofocus. Taking pictures with the Picamera2 is easy, but sometimes we just want to press a button and take a picture, and appear in the shot!
In this project we will use Blue Dot, a Python module and Android app to create a Bluetooth controlled camera trigger. Thanks to Blue Dot’s easy to use library and Picamera2’s verbose structure we will be capturing 1080p photos via a small amount of code.
