Version 1.6 of my very crude camcorder software. Nothing too special here. Just Picamera code that defines a few simple functions and looks for keyboard commands to trigger various actions. I changed all function calls to numbers instead of letters so I could use the numpad and a USB wireless remote more easily. It works, but is still basic. Functions: Start/stop recording, take a photo, change a few ISO/exposure settings, turn preview on and off, exit program. Bare minimum viable for video. There is a working line, commented out, that records audio through a USB microphone with Pulse audio, but it doesn't sync up. Proof of concept.

Version 1.5 of my Raspberry Pi Camcorder software. It's still very simple, but has more features than the previous version. Added a few exposure and ISO modes over the last version. Requires the Keyboard PIP3 module installed.

The first version of the code that uses functions and resembles code not written by a 5 year old. It only records 1080p video, no audio at this point. Requires the Keyboard PIP3 module installed.

The very first, crude control software for my custom camera. Requires the Keyboard PIP3 module installed.
