Ricoh Camera Control Sample for Python

Camera Remote Control Python Library samples for Ricoh API. You can send/receive a shoot message and parameters.

Requirements

You need

  • Ricoh API Client Credentials (client_id & client_secret)
  • Ricoh ID (user_id & password)

If you don't have them, please register yourself and your client from THETA Developers Website.

Install

pip install --upgrade git+https://github.com/ricohapi/auth-py.git
pip install --upgrade git+https://github.com/ricohapi/media-storage-py.git
git clone https://github.com/ricohapi/camera-control-sample-py.git

In your downloaded directory,

pip install .

Download Intermediate CA Certificate

This library uses MQTTS as the communication protocol. You need a CA certificate to use MQTTS. Download it from the URL below. https://support.comodo.com/index.php?/Knowledgebase/Article/GetAttachment/991/1070566

Camera control samples

##Command-line sample This is a command-line sample program of sending/receiving camera control messages.

Setup

  • Move to samples directory.
  • Rename config_template.json to config.json and setup your credentials.
{
  "USER": "set_your_user_id",
  "PASS": "set_your_user_pass",
  "CLIENT_ID": "set_your_client_id",
  "CLIENT_SECRET": "set_your_client_secret",
  "CA_CERTS": "path to the ca certificate files"
}

Message Receiver Side

  • Connect the host machine with the THETA S via Wi-Fi. For the details of Wi-Fi setup, refer to the URL below.
  • Connect the host machine to the Internet.
  • Start listening to the camera control message to the DEVID device by running the command below.
  • Once a message is received, the specified callback function is called.
    • Sender-specified device ID, command name, command parameters are passed along with the receiver-specified arguments.
$ python remocon.py --dev=DEVID start

You can specify your own DEVID. It should be in a format /[A-Za-z0-9_]{1,32}/.

Message Sender Side

  • Connect the host machine to the Internet.
  • Send a message to the DEVID device by running the command below.
  • User parameters can be specified as a string. User parameter keys need to start with an underscore. This sample program expects JSON String formatted user parameters.
$ python remocon.py --dev=DEVID shoot

$ python remocon.py -DEVID -p'{"_shutterSpeed": 0.01, "_iso": 200}' shoot

Example

On one terminal (device side)

$ python remocon.py --dev=DEV001 start

connecting...
hit enter key to quit.

On another (control side)

$ python remocon.py --dev=DEV01 shoot

$ python remocon.py -dDEV001 -p'{"_shutterSpeed": 0.01, "_iso": 200}' shoot

Then on the terminal (device side)

device   : DEV001
command  : shoot
message:  None
fun_param: callback_args
(take picture)

device   : DEV001
command  : shoot
rcv_param: {u'_shutterSpeed': 0.01, u'_iso': 200}
fun_param: callback_args
(take picture)

For details of the callback function, refer to the sample code remocon.py.

##Use sample API

These are camera control message receiver and sender samples using the Python SDK.

Receiving a camera control message

from ricohapi.cameractl.client import Client

with Client(client_id, client_secret) as camera:
    camera.connect(user_id, user_pass, ca_certs)
    camera.listen(dev_id, func=on_receive, fargs=('callback_args',))
    print('connecting...')
    print('hit enter key to quit.')
    _ = input()


def on_receive(devid, cmd, rcv_param, fun_param):
    '''Called back when a camera control message is received. '''
    print('device   :', devid)
    print('command  :', cmd)
    print('rcv_param:', rcv_param)
    print('fun_param:', fun_param)
    print('take picture')

Sending a shooting message

from ricohapi.cameractl.client import Client

with Client(client_id, client_secret) as camera:
    camera.connect(user_id, user_pass, ca_certs)
    camera.shoot(dev_id)

Sample SDK API Usage

Constructor

Put your Ricoh API Client ID and Client Secret.

from ricohapi.cameractl.client import Client

camera = Client(client_id, client_secret)

Connect to the server

Connect to the remote VCP server provided by Ricoh. You'll need Ricoh User ID and Password, and also specify the path to the CA certificate.

def connect(self, user_id, user_pass, ca_certs):
    """connect to the server.

    :param str user_id: your user id
    :param str user_pass: your password
    :param str ca_certs: The path to the ca certificate file.
    """

Disconnect from the server

def disconnect(self):

Start listening to messages

Start listening to the camera control message to the device specified by the device_id.
The device_id must be in a format /[A-Za-z0-9_]{1,32}/.
The func and fargs are a callback function and its arguments which will be called when the message received.

The callback function is called with the target device_id, command name, command parameters, and the arguments specified via fargs.

If func is omitted, no callback call is triggered.

Refer to the sample code for more details.

def listen(self, device_id, func=None, fargs=None):
    """Start listening to the camera control messages
       and callbacks when the message is received.

    :param str device_id: device id to which you want to send message.
    :param function func: callback function which called message is received
    :param tuple fargs: func argument
    """

ex.)

camera.listen(DEV_ID, func=on_receive, fargs=None)

Terminate listening to messages

Terminate listening to the camera control message to the device specified by the device_id.

def unlisten(self):
    """Unlisten to the camera control message that is already listened.
    """

Send a shooting message

Send a shooting message to the device specified by the device_id. You can specify a set of user parameters via the argument param. The user parameters can include objects that are serializable by msgpack-python. For details of msgpack-python, refer to the documentation below.

User parameters are passed to the receiver.

User parameters needs to be dictionary-formatted, and the key needs to start with an underscore (_).

For more details, refer to the sample code.

def shoot(self, device_id, param=None):
    """Send a shooting message to the device specified by the device_id.

    :param str device_id: a device id to which you want to send message.
    :param dict param: user specified camera control parameters.
    """

ex.)

camera.shoot("dev001", '{"_shutterSpeed": 0.01, "_iso": 200}')
