Camera Module for Raspberry Pi Zero

This minimal camera for the Pi Zero (or Pi Zero W) is perfect for small camera projects where space is at a premium.

The sensor is 5MP, and the whole shebang is mounted on a flexible circuit board. As such, a little care is needed when handling, just like the connector on the Pi Zero. Easy there, Lennie!

Otherwise it's an economical and svelte solution for bird box cameras, body-cams, home security, and simple computer vision projects.

UPDATE: now also available without an IR filter, which is useful for night vision, especially when using IR lights to illuminate the subject.

UPDATE: now available with a 120° wide-angle lens!

UPDATE: now also available with a 160° wide-angle, variable-focus lens! You can adjust the focus on this lens to focus reaaaaaally close!!
