Hi Dion and Team.

Have a nice day. Thank for your reply.
I have tried this and I can play video and take a picture.
But I want to run my program in Visual Studio Code. Like this below picture,

Now, I just can run by using CMD and type " python3 -v --preview-width 1280 -f config_4000x3000.cfg"

I don’t know how to import .cfg file in my python code.

Glad to get your help!

Thanks anh best regards.

I did it :grin: :grin: :grin: :grin:

And I have a question.

In my project, Arducam 108mp will take a picture at 12000x9000 pixel. About 100 times a day and and always powered.

Will I be able to use it for a long time? I’m afraid it’s going to be a problem.

Take it easy, this camera is not as fragile as you think… :rofl:

Hi Dion!

Thank for reply.
I have a new question.
When I take a piture with GUI. I adjust ISPGamma bettwen 0 and 1.
I found that when ISPgamma = 0, the picture tinged with green. When ISPGamma = 1, the picture is nomal.

From that, I adjust config file live below picture. WHen I adjust ISPGamma = 0 or = 1. The picture allway tinged with green.

and this is my code.
