Zero Spy Camera for Raspberry Pi Zero - 120 Degree Focal Angle
£13.33 ex VAT
The Spy Camera for Raspberry Pi Zero is smaller than a thumbnail with a high enough resolution to see people, cats, the garden or whatever it is you're looking for. It's about the same size as a mobile phone camera, measuring 8.6mm x 8.6mm with a 2" cable, so you can create an extra compact cam project. This version has a 120-degree focal angle for a very wide/distorted fisheye effect that's great for creating a home security system or watching a big area of the garden or driveway.
Like the Raspberry Pi Camera Board, it attaches to your Raspberry Pi Zero v1.3 or Zero W by way of the small socket on the board's edge closest to the "PWR in" port. This interface uses the dedicated CSI interface, which was designed especially for interfacing with cameras. The CSI bus is capable of extremely high data rates, and it exclusively carries pixel data.
The camera is connected to the BCM2835 processor on the Pi via the CSI bus, a higher bandwidth link which carries pixel data from the camera back to the processor. This bus travels along the ribbon cable that attaches the camera board to the Pi. The ribbon cables are compatible with both the Pi Zero v1.3 and Pi Zero W.
The sensor itself has a native resolution of 5 megapixels and has a fixed focus lens onboard. It has similar specs as the original Pi Camera, but is not as high-res as the new Pi Camera v2!
