I believe that I’ve found the solution to this issue.
There appears to be a problem in the way that picamera deals with camera mode setting. The data rate for video coming from the PiCapture SD1 is 60fps, which is higher than than the default data rate for the camera (30fps). For some reason, this is confusing the current release of picamera and it is overriding the sensor_mode setting and trying to treat it like Mode 4.
Please try specifying a framerate of 60fps, and let me know if that resolves what you are seeing – it fixed it on my system:
camera.framerate = 60
Thanks for your patience as we work through these issues.
