Is there any way to check if the camera shutter is open?
I tried following the camera-based examples given in the Python Code Examples, but if the camera shutter is closed, instead of detecting it shut and informing the user, the camera continues to work, showing a dark image.
And then, if one opens the shutter, the camera's native camera application starts - and then one has to quit the application, return to the original (Python) camera application, etc.
Is it possible for the python module to detect that the lid is shut (shutter is closed), so that the application can inform the user about the camera being shut? Or is it a module that has to be written? Would make an interesting project..
