Raspberry Pi camera board

There was a Raspberry Jam in Oxford this week. There were lots of good exhibits as usual. I’ll probably blog a bit more about some of the others a little later. In the meantime you’ve got Pete Wood’s blog here. The big news for me was the much awaited Pi camera board. It was the first time I’d seen one. Here’s a screen grab from my video showing what it looks like.

It looks small and neat. The picture quality seems good and I can’t wait to get one. :) It’ll be out in a couple of weeks. (Plan A date is 14th May if I remember correctly what Colin said.)

Here’s a short preview video. It’s in HD. Since the pi camera output is HD, it seems silly to publish in anything less. Enjoy…

  4. Received mine yesterday and quickly realized I needed a way to mount it. Otherwise, it flops all over the place. I made one from a couple spare things I had lying around – a male RCA to 1/8″ phone plug adapter and a 5″ piece of insulated 12 gauge solid wire. I glued one end of the wire in the 1/8″ end of the adapter and hot glued the other end of the wire to the side of the camera board. Needless to say the RCA end plugs into the RPi video jack. The wire can be easily bent to aim the camera as needed and is plenty stable.
