Feeding frenzy

My hunger to shop has just been sated: 2 new Pi Zeros + the new 8 mega pixel camera module + the Zero camera cable + Unicorm HAT and diffuser plate.

Yes, you heard me right, the latest Pi Zeros now have a camera slot.

One Zero is for showing off at the next Cotswold Jam, along with the new higher-resolution 8 megapixel camera module.  Perhaps set up as a tiny onesie cam?

The other is for Zoe – and maybe another camera too, once I’ve overcome the problem with WAPping the latest jessie, the use of which is mandatory if I want to use the new higher-res camera with her purely for FPV videos. ¬†The new camera slot points horizontally which is great for retaining the low profile of the Pi Zero.

The unicorn and diffuser are mostly just for playing with on my main Pi.

Next frenzy will start when they launch the A3 which I’ll be transferring Phoebe to for the extra CPU cores and processor speed needed for the two LiDAR units I’ll eventually be installing.

Until then, I’ll be working on repaying my overdraft!
