How to install picamraw using pip

First try installing it normally:

sudo pip3 install picamraw

In case that fails with this error message (like for me):

Looking in indexes:,
Collecting picamraw
Could not install packages due to an EnvironmentError: 404 Client Error: Not Found for url:

download it and install it manually: Copy the link of the most recent .whl file from, download it using wget and install it using pip3, e.g.:

sudo pip3 install picamraw-1.2.64-py3-none-any.whl
