To coincide with the launch of the High Quality Camera, Raspberry Pi Press has released a new 132-page book to show you how to set it up, shoot great photos and videos, and use it in a range of inspiring projects.
A step-by-step illustrated guide reveals how to attach a lens to the camera and adjust its focus and aperture settings. You’ll then learn how to control the camera by issuing terminal commands – or with Python code using the picamera library – and discover the many image modes and effects available.
To inspire you further, an exciting range of Raspberry Pi projects are showcased across the book’s 17 chapters. Take selfies and stop-motion videos, build a wildlife camera trap, experiment with high-speed and time-lapse photography, create a Minecraft photo booth, set up a security camera, use ANPR to identify vehicles, take your camera underwater, and a whole lot more!
And if you don’t have a High Quality Camera yet, don’t worry: you can use a standard Raspberry Pi Camera Module with all the projects.
