Raspberry Pi Camera Module Review – Eye Pi


Hi,

Raspberry Pi Camera Module Review – Eye Pi
Quote:
Technical Specs

Sensor: Omnivision 5647, five megapixel
Lens: 3.6mm F/2.0 fixed-focus
Dimensions: 21.6mm x 25mm x 8.65mm (excluding cable)
Weight: 3g (excluding cable)
Cable Length: 150mm (15-core 1mm pitch ribbon cable)
Connection: Camera Serial Interconnect (CSI)
Maximum Still Resolution: 2,592×1,944 (currently limited to 1,920×1,080)
Maximum Video Resolution: 1,920×1,080 (1080p) 30fps

The Omnivision five megapixel sensor is found behind a fixed-focus 3.6mm lens, but you can adjust the focus with a little hacking

The Camera Module is the first piece of add-on hardware to come out of the Raspberry Pi Foundation itself – and it addresses a real need in the Pi community. Many users are looking to use the Pi for computer vision projects ranging from near-space balloon launches – in which the Pi provides a live stream of its journey while storing higher-resolution snapshots for when it returns to the ground – to burglar alarms and home automation systems.

Looks like fun, but not available for order or even pre-order yet in the USA; going to be listed at $29, which is an 18% markup from prices in the UK. *Sigh*

Hi,

sad that we in the USA have to wait so long to get items to the distributor. I use Newark/Element14.
