OpenSphericalCamera Client

A Python library for interfacing with cameras that implement the OpenSphericalCamera API

Supported Cameras

Usage

Usage of the pure OSC API

from osc.osc import *

# Initializing the class starts a session
camera = OpenSphericalCamera()
camera.state()
camera.info()

# Only need to call this if there was a problem
# when 'camera' was created
camera.startSession()

# Capture image
response = camera.takePicture()

# Wait for the stitching to finish
camera.waitForProcessing(response['id'])

# Copy image to computer
camera.getLatestImage()

# Close the session
camera.closeSession()

Usage of the Ricoh Theta S extended API

from osc.theta import RicohThetaS

thetas = RicohThetaS()
thetas.state()
thetas.info()

# Capture image
thetas.setCaptureMode( 'image' )
response = thetas.takePicture()

# Wait for the stitching to finish
thetas.waitForProcessing(response['id'])

# Copy image to computer
thetas.getLatestImage()

# Stream the livePreview video to disk
# for 3 seconds
thetas.getLivePreview(timeLimitSeconds=3)

# Capture video
thetas.setCaptureMode( '_video' )
thetas.startCapture()
thetas.stopCapture()

# Copy video to computer
thetas.getLatestVideo()

# Close the session
thetas.closeSession()

Notes

The BublOscClient.js client is the only documentation I can find for the Bublcam custom commands. The client was not tested with actual hardware.

Requirements

The Python Requests library is used to manage all calls to the OSC API.

Install requests with pip:

pip install requests
