Anyone made a Petit Studios camera case ?

As some may know, Petit Studios has a board that allows the RasPi camera to be extended via HDMI cabling. I'd like to enclose the two boards into a case rather than handle them as bare units, but am drawing a blank.

Has anyone done this ?

The folks at Tindie made a case you can see here.

Also, take a look here.

Cheers Mark,

I recall seeing the first one a while back; no-one else made any though ? I guess it's functional, albeit basic & lacking in aesthetics ! :lol:

I don't consider the second to be viable though (well, not for my needs) given the ring of LEDs all around it ! ;)

I didn't think so at first either, until I needed night vision for some nature (deer) watching I was trying to do... motion sensor detects the deer, trips the raspistill noir camera (after turing on the ring of IR LEDs that is flooding the area with invisible light!) Its a cool idea.

Oh, not disputing that ... only I doubt it would illuminate what I'll be imaging ... stars & planets :lol:
