Hello FD,

the Joy-Pi has a USB camera installed. This needs other commands.
Please refer to the manual starting on page 60.

There are the right commands.


First, install the fswebcam package: (you dont have to install it if you use our ready to use image)

sudo apt-get install fswebcam

Enter the command fswebcam followed by a filename and a picture will be taken using the webcam, and
saved to the filename specified:

fswebcam image.jpg

best regards

Chris (Joy-IT)
