Step 3: Capture an image

Once the camera is enabled, we are ready to capture an image.
To capture a still image open terminal and type the command

Here “raspistill” is a command that captures an image, the parameter “-o” specifies the filename of image.

For example, this command will record a 10 second video and save it as video.h264.
