Raspberry Pi Camera Module Is Almost Ready for Its Close Up

What you’re looking at here is a close up of the brand new camera module for the Raspberry Pi, which is in the finishing stages of development. The camera connects to the Raspberry Pi via the onboard CSI (camera serial interface) port. There’s still some work to be done with the drivers and there’s still no word on the release date: “We’re probably at least a month away (and possibly more) from being able to sell these at the moment,” according to the post on the official Raspberry Pi blog.
