Product Type: Cases & Plates
The 'Nwazet Pi Camera Box' is designed for hosting a Raspberry Pi computer (model A or B) and a Pi Camera module together in a compact and versatile enclosure.
This all-integrated design ensures that the camera's fragile ribbon cable doesn't get damaged while exposed during operation.
This case can accommodate an optional magnetic camera lens, which opens up new possibilities above and beyond the outstanding optical quality of the Pi Camera module.
The black matte case is opaque, ensuring that the red led mounted on the Pi Camera module will not affect the ambient light captured by the camera.
The back of the 'Pi Camera Box' can accept an optional wall-mounting bracket for permanent installations.
The flexibility of this design is ideal for using a Raspberry Pi and its camera module in a variety of applications such as security with a wide angle fish-eye lens, process monitoring, computer vision, high-definition time lapses, motion sensing and many other fun projects.
This case is not compatible with the Model B rev. 1 card (the model without mounting holes). It is also not compatible with model B+, for which we are selling a different case.

If the Raspberry Pi was a revolution in the way we design microcontroller projects and embedded systems, its camera has similar potential. This is no mere MJPEG, serial, or even USB camera like those that until now were in projects requiring photo or video capabilities. With its specialized CSI connector on the Raspberry Pi, and its uncompromising design, it redefines what it is possible to do on such an inexpensive setup.
Quoting the Raspberry Pi Foundation's FAQ page: "What’s a Raspberry Pi? The Raspberry Pi is a credit-card sized computer that plugs into your TV and a keyboard. It’s a capable little PC which can be used for many of the things that your desktop PC does, like spreadsheets, word-processing and games. It also plays high-definition video. We want to see it being used by kids all over the world to learn programming.". We also think that the Raspberry Pi is a fantastic platform for hacking Internet-connected hardware projects :)
The Raspberry Pi's camera offers great features out-of-the box, which can be enhanced by adding interchangeable lenses.
The Raspberry Pi Camera, enclosed with the Pi in our Camera Box, and equipped with a fish eye lens, is a very capable surveillance and monitoring system that is easy to connect and program.
We love squeezing as much performance as we can out of our Raspberry Pi computers and since it's so easy to overclock the little guy, we all do it. We also like to protect our beloved little machine in an enclosure, which may reduce air flow around the board.
