OK, maybe we missed this adaptor kit ...https://www.raspberrypi.org/blog/camera ... extension/ . The camera gets a little sandwich board stuck on the back, and somehow a similar patch board has to be locked on to the pi board. Its HDMI slot ought to peep out of the pi casing. Maybe a ribbon cable will have to be cut to a special length to fit the pi end.mikey11 wrote:Having explored the use of the raspberry pi camera module in the past, the results were somewhat encouraging. Using the camera module uses the CSI connector which accesses the GPU directly.
I had a few issues with the camera.
1. As you mentioned, it needs a lens
2. It needs a case with mounting solution
3. The connector sucks, and the flat cable sucks more.
1. Lenses are cheap and not hard to install.
2. Designing and printing a 3D printed case for prototyping shouldn't be too hard. This also let's you design an interchangeable lens system possibly.
3. There is no good solution to the connector and cable. It is possible to make conversions to an HDMI cable or make a round cable, but it is a huge pain in the butt.
I like the camera module, it is cheaper and more reliably available than the glasses. It uses the gpu for capture, which may enable the rpi zero to operate. I am getting more competent with case design, and can handle that.
If someone found a good and cheap round cable, my interest level would jump dramatically.
