I'm so excited about this new project! A truly compact and portable Raspberry Pi Camera and it's easy as anything to build!
I first thought about building a Raspberry Pi Camera after seeing the SnapPiCam instructable guide. This is a clever little project, which uses a LiPo battery to power a Raspberry Pi model A. But it got me thinking could I do something even more compact which is even simpler to build?
The real challenge is powering this little baby. Where the SnapPiCam is using a separate battery, converter and charging unit I've used the PiJuice. It's basically an all in one battery module for the Raspberry Pi and it's an ideal integrated power solution for a DIY Compact Camera.
I've also decided to use the Raspberry Pi a+ as it's the cheapest and smallest available Raspberry Pi so it'll fit nicely with PiJuice and make this camera supper compact!
