To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
It's an excellent toy to add to the Pi, value for money, ridiculous modes are possible, like extremely high refresh rates under low resolution. The best picture quality is at 1280x720@25Hz (probably pixels are grouped 2x2, thus reducing noise). Full HD at 60Hz is OK. The camera is fully supported by the hardware accelerated codec. Pi, actually, can run a lightweight web server for live streaming video. One star is dropped for not including a plastic focus adjustment tool in the kit.
Die Kamera ist eigentlich okay, aber der Fokus der kleinen Linse ist auf unendlich eingestellt. Man kann diesen ändern indem man sie dreht, aber da kein Werkzeug dafür beilag, habe ich den Fehler gemacht, das mit einer Pinzette zu versuchen. Bin abgerutscht und leicht an die Linse gekommen die sofort verkratzt ist und jetzt liefert die Kamera ein verschwommenen Bild. Und austauschen kann man die Linse wohl nicht. Also Vorsicht beim Fokus einstellen!
Expensive for what it is, but is immediately compatible with the Raspberry Pi natively, and does give a decent video image output (better than the basic MK1). Install depends on whatever software you use. Would also recommend and extension ribbon cable, to make it easier to place away from a Pi enclosure box. Works, would recommend.
Raspberry Pi have great guides to get this camera up and running. The picture quality is brilliant. Don't expect it to be amazing in low light, but it's a flexible device, designed and suitable for maker projects where a camera is necessary or you want the results of the pictures to be used in your own code running on the Pi. Great for robotics!
This is an excellent quality camera for your Pi. This improved version is better than the last in terms of low light performance and overall quality (8MP vs 5MP). The stills from this are sharp and in perfect focus. The 1080p HD video is also excellent. The price is on the high side and almost as much as the Pi itself but devices with lenses will never be cheap.
This product worked fine at first but it wasn't long before it completely stopped working and ended up in the trash. Maybe I got unlucky and received a defective piece but this is an inferior quality product and I would suggest you steer clear!
A really well specified camera system, I am still trying to get to grips with all the modes of operation. My only quibble was the short cable that it came with. I had to purchase a longer Adafruit cable to make it useful for my experiments
