Video: Raspberry Pi camera accessory available now

Raspberry Pi camera module

The Raspberry Pi foundation on Tuesday announced the availability of a $25 camera module for its popular Raspberry Pi computers. The module can be purchased from distributors RS Components or Premier Farnell/Element14, and is compatible with both the Model A and Model B versions of the Raspberry Pi. The 5-megapixel camera is capable of taking pictures at a 2592 x 1944 resolution and can record full 1080p HD video at 30 frames per second. The module’s ribbon cable must be plugged into the CSi port that is located between the Ethernet and HDMI ports on the unit. The Raspberry Pi must also be on the latest firmware to recognize the camera, which can then be enabled in the configuration settings. A video demonstration follows below.
