Favorited Favorite 0

Well, hello there! Welcome back to another Friday Product Post. This week we have three brand new products that we are sure you'll love. Yup, we are being that bold. Why? Well, because we have not one, but two brand new Raspberry Pi products for you that can be used in conjunction with each other. Not only that, but we now have a breakout board available for the very commonly used RJ11 Connector! Let's not waste any more time and just dive on in!

A stunning Nick in vivid color!

Raspberry Pi Camera Module V2


This 8mp camera module, capable of 1080p video and still images, connects directly to your Raspberry Pi. It is plug-and-play compatible with the latest version of the Raspbian operating system, making it perfect for time-lapse photography, recording video, motion detection, and security applications. Connect the included ribbon cable to the CSi (Camera Serial Interface) port on your Raspberry Pi, and you are good to go!

Raspberry Pi 3 + Camera Enclosure - Clear

1 Retired

This clear enclosure protects the Raspberry Pi 3, RPi2 and Model B+ from things like rogue wires that might short it out while still allowing full access to the board as well as proper airflow to keep your new toy cool! Simply snap the RPi into the bottom half of the enclosure, then snap the two sides together. No tools required!

Not only does this clear enclosure provide a "safe space" for your RPi3 and access to each of its ports, but it can also secure a Pi Camera v2 module inside!

SparkFun RJ11 Breakout

Finally today we have the SparkFun RJ11 Breakout, two simple breakout boards for the common 6-pin RJ11 connector. These little boards can easily have one of our RJ11 6-Pin Connectors to work with common telephone cables. Each board features standard B/R/Y/G (Black/Red/Yellow/Green) labels on the top of the board to match a standard telephone wire. Additionally, each board has pin numbers on the back side that match with the pins on the connector.

That's it for today, folks. Be sure to check back next Friday for a HUGE week of new products. There are going to be quite a few! Thanks for stopping by, and we'll see you then!

    I wonder if the RPi Zero would work with this camera? A wifi dongle could be added (as the Pi0 doesn't have wifi). The combo might fit inside of some of the 'pinhole' camera bodies I've found on thingiverse, and be 3D printed.
