element14 adds image and video capture with Raspberry Pi eye accessory
One of a strong pipeline of exclusive Raspberry Pi accessories to be launched this year, the camera board, which retails at USD25 is available through Newark element14 and MCM in North America, Farnell element14 in Europe, CPC in the UK and Ireland and element14 in Asia Pacific.
The Camera board is a custom designed add-on for the Raspberry Pi which attaches to one of the small sockets on the board’s upper surface. This interface uses the dedicated CSi interface, designed especially for interfacing to cameras. The camera board itself is tiny, at around 25x20x9mm, it has a 5 megapixel native resolution sensor capable of taking 2592×1944 pixel static images but can also record 1080p30, 720p60 and 640x480p60/90 video.
element14 is calling all budding photographers to enter its Raspberry Pi photography competition to win a supply of new Raspberry Pi accessories throughout the remainder of the year.
