Raspberry Pi gets a camera, and a photo competition
Element 14 has announced a camera peripheral for Raspberry Pi.
It is 25x20x9mm, has 5Mpixel (2592×1944) native resolution for stills, and supports 1080p30, 720p60 and 640x480p60/90 video.
“The camera is supported in the latest version of Raspbian; Raspberry Pi’s preferred operating system,” said Element 14.
Price is $25, and it plugs into the Pi’s CSi interface, designed especially for interfacing to cameras.
There is also a photo competition running until 14 June 2013: “Anyone owning a Raspberry Pi and camera can enter the competition which calls for images taken with the device to be submitted in four categories: your workshop/den, your Pi project, people and pets, or outdoors,” said Element 14.
