Raspberry Pi camera module

I recently ordered a camera module for my Raspberry Pi, and finally got around to installing it this evening, to include the lego tower that it’s perched on. I also discovered that my ASUS AC66U wireless router has enough power in the two USB ports to run a Pi and charge an iPhone at the same time.

The camera works great, it has five megapixels and can produce 1080p photos or 720p video. There are some updates and packages that need to be installed before you jump in, but that really only took about 30 minutes to run through that process, including download time. Step by step guide here.

The pictures from the actual sensor are great, if I have time tomorrow I’ll take the rig outside and upload some photos.
