Remember that Raspberry Pi camera module we wrote about a few months ago? It looks like UK-based electronics retailer CPC / Farnell will start taking orders for the shooter on May 14th. Users on the Raspberry Pi forums who signed up for info about the camera module have received an email from the retailer inviting them to order. As a reminder, the five megapixel fixed-focus shooter — which only measures 25 x 20 x 9mm — can snap 2,592 x 1,944-pixel images and capture video at 1,080p (30fps), 720p (60fps) and VGA (60 or 90fps). While the accessory is expected to cost about $25, there’s no actual pricing details on CPC / Farnell’s website. Wanna see the camera module in action? One lucky Raspberry Pi user’s received the device early and shared a video — check it out after the break.
Update: As promised, the boards are now officially available to order per a blog post on the Raspberry Pi website. Hit the source link for a list of commands needed to activate the add-on, or check after the break for another video demonstrating the setup process.
