The Raspberry Pi Camera Module

So I’ve set my new Raspberry Pi up with Kodi and I’ve downloaded some add-ons and I’ve watched a film or two. I’ve even dabbled a bit in Python whilst running the Linux distro Rasbian. So what next I thought.

How about setting up a spy camera! That sounds fun. Believe it or not, the Rasberry Pi Camera Module V2 is an 8 megapixel camera capable of 3280 x 2464 pixel static images, as well as supporting 1080p video. And all for around $32/£24. It’s very easy to setup and get going and some of the online tutorials such as this one here will quickly have you taking pictures and saving videos.

I also spotted this program available for free online that allows the camera to be used as a motion detection security camera recording footage when people walk past.

If you fancy dipping your toes in too – why not take a look here.
