Re: RPi Cam Web Interface

Been using this software a long time now and I just have to say the Reset Settings button, I hate it with a passion. Several times I have wiped my settings on accident when trying to reboot from the button next to it. Any chance you could change it to back the settings up before it wipes?

[quote="W. H. Heydt"] With Adafruit, did you scroll down to the end of the listing of shipping options? As I recall, USPS is at the bottom of the list and is the cheapest option.

Re: Pi Zero order limit redux, beating a dead horse?

Say, what? Where did you get the idea that the Pi Zero isn't made on the same line as other Pis? That they *are* made on the same line as other Pis is part of the problem.

Re: Pi Zero order limit redux, beating a dead horse?

Thanks everyone. I guess the bottom line is the Pi Zero is an anomaly they threw us as a bone. The sad part is the goal of the Pi foundation could be so much better met by making more product available in this case. I understand there are logistics and production issues as its not made on the same p...

Which M12 lenses have you tried? Are any as good and as wide angle as the OEM? I just ordered the M12 IR Swtiched filter.
