Raspberry Pi team teases camera add-on

Raspberry Pi Camera

The Raspberry Pi $35 Linux computer, which is equipped with a 700MHz processor, 256MB of RAM, an SD card slot, two USB ports, an Ethernet jack and both HDMI and RCA outputs, will soon feature support for a camera add-on. The current prototype features a 14-megapixel camera that can be connected directly to the Rapsberry Pi through its CSI pins. The team warns that it “may downgrade the super-duperness of the camera to something with fewer than its current 14 megapixels before release,” however, in order to “keep things affordable, and a sensor of that size will end up pricey.” The add-on is slated to be released later this year and end-user pricing was not disclosed. A sample of an image taken with the camera follows below.
