Raspberry Pi Camera Module Software

In my last article I discussed the Raspberry Pi Foundation’s Camera Module, but focused mainly on its hardware. In this article I am going to discuss the software that utilizes the hardware. The main ways to use the module is with raspistill and raspivid, which are Linux commands. They are used to record a still image or video in the Raspbian operating system. These Linux commands can also be called from a C program, and I’ll cover more on this later. You can also utilize the camera module using a Python library called picamera. Pyhton is a very easy to learn high-level language. It is much less like C and is more comparable to Java.

Raspberry Pi Camera Module Hardware

In this article I am going to discuss the Raspberry Pi Foundation’s camera module. This article will focus solely on the module hardware and what kind of video or images the camera sensor can produce. We’ll look at the standard module as well as the new NoIR Module just released by the Raspberry Pi Foundation. There is a way to use external lenses with these modules, and I’ll attempt to explain how to do this safely for those looking to push the envelope. Lastly I’m going to review some case and mounting options for the RPi and Camera Module to help you decide which case is right for your next project.
