Raspberry Pi 5MP camera bundles boost Pi multimedia

Nick Flaherty -October 15, 2013

RS Components has released two new product bundles featuring the Raspberry Pi Model A board and the Raspberry Pi camera module. The bundles are aimed at developers requiring a blend of ultra-low power consumption and high quality image capture, and where size and weight are important, typically in mobile applications.

The first bundle, priced at $40 (plus local taxes and shipping/handling charges) simply combines the ultra-low-power Raspberry Pi Model A with the tiny, lightweight camera module. The second bundle comes supplied with a 4GB SD card with the operating system pre-installed, and can be purchased for $45. Both bundles deliver savings of more than 10% on the price of the units when purchased separately.

Raspberry Pi Model A is the lower profile version of the credit card-sized board, containing 256MB RAM, a single USB port, and no Ethernet connection. The camera module, which measures just 25mm x 20mm x 9mm and weighs a little over 3g, contains a 5-megapixel CMOS sensor capable of delivering 2592 x 1944 pixel still images, while supporting 1080p at 30fps, 720p at 60fps and 640x480p at 60 or 90fps video capture. The camera module connects to the Raspberry Pi Model A via a short ribbon cable, using CSI and I2C for control.

The two bundles are available to purchase direct from RS stock for same-day dispatch.
