Streaming Video with the Raspberry Pi Zero W & Pi Camera

IR-CUT Camera Module
I needed a really tiny yet cheap camera so I thought of the Raspberry Pi Camera module. The Version 2 Camera Module does 8MP with good quality, although a 5MP  IR-Cut Camera better suited my needs.

About the IR-CUT Camera

The IR-CUT Camera works on Normal Mode by default. There are two ways to toggle between Normal Mode and Night-vision Mode.

1. By editing the config.txt<code> file:

and append:

exit with save and restart your Pi then the camera will work on Night-vision Mode.

Timelapse Photography with Raspberry Pi Zero

long-camera-adaptor-for-pi-zero

This tutorial will guide you through taking photos using a Pi Zero and camera, to make a simple timelapse-capturing device. Use it to make a timelapse of a plant growing with the delay set to a day, or the progress on your building work with hourly photos, or a soldering project with a photo every 5 seconds.

Enable the camera

This tutorial assumes you have already set up your OctoCam as per the instructions. If you’re using a camera and a Pi, make sure the camera is connected.

In the Terminal, type sudo raspi-config and press Enter. This will bring up a menu on the screen. You’ll need to press 5, then choose option 1 to enable the camera, and then choose yes. Once you finish with the menu you should get prompted to reboot. This needs doing!

Using OpenCV with the Raspberry Pi Camera

OpenCV RasPi CSI Camera
OpenCV doesn’t work natively with the Rasperry Pi Camera as it is not a usb-webcam. That said, the applications such as raspivid or raspistill controls the Raspberry Pi Camera using MMAL Functions. So the one needs to modify the source code of these applications, by using the Buffer Memory of the Raspberry Pi Camera Board to be feed to OpenCV as Image Objects.

First Look at the Raspberry Pi Camera with CS Mount Lens

Raspberry PI Camera
Back at the end of December 2013 I discovered and purchased a Raspberry Pi Camera Board with a CS Mount Lens already fitted and is supported in the latest version of Raspbian, Raspberry Pi’s preferred operating system. The ArduCAM Group have released an add-on camera module for Raspberry Pi which is fully compatible with official one. The camera duly turned up a fortnight later in a small box which had been packed with great care. I finally organised myself to check the Raspberry Pi Camera module a few days ago.

RasPi CSI Camera

Fully Compatible with Official Camera Module.

In order to meet the increasing need of Raspberry Pi compatible camera modules. The ArduCAM Group have released a add-on camera module for Raspberry Pi which is fully compatible with official one. It attaches to Raspberry Pi by way of one of the two small sockets on the board upper surface. This interface uses the dedicated CSI interface, which was designed especially for interfacing to cameras. The CSI bus is capable of extremely high data rates, and it exclusively carries pixel data. The camera is supported in the latest version of Raspbian, Raspberry Pi’s preferred operating system.
