It’s a great pleasure have this cool gadget. This is the new RPI Camera Board, the essential part in every RPI project! The Raspberry Pi Camera Module is a custom designed add-on for Raspberry Pi. It attaches to Raspberry Pi by way of one of the two small sockets on the board upper surface. This interface uses the dedicated CSI interface, which was designed especially for interfacing to cameras. The CSI bus is capable of extremely high data rates, and it exclusively carries pixel data.
Some of its features:
- 5 Megapixel Sensor 2592 x 1944
- Supports 1080p30 / 720p60 / 640x480p Video
- 25mm x 20mm x 9mm Footprint
- You can see all the config options and possibilities that this camera has: RaspyCamDocs
