The Ben Heck Show set out to make a super slim point and shoot camera with a Raspberry Pi.
Felix built a point and shoot camera using spare parts laying around the shop and suggests that Ben shrink it down and put it into a cool enclosure. Ben shares tips and tricks as he works to remove anything unnecessary from the Pi, making it as small as possible. Felix shows how he programmed the Pi to work as a camera in the Tech Time Out. Ben hand wires all the components together until he’s created a super slim Pi point and shoot camera. After he designs and 3D prints a case, it’s time for some selfies!

PiTFT Mini Kit – 320×240 2.8″ TFT+ Capacitive Touchscreen: Our best-selling PiTFT just got a fancy upgrade, now we have a version with a capacitive touchscreen! That’s right, instead of a resistive touchscreen, which requires a fingernail or stylus, you can now use a fingerpad. The screen looks much nicer, with a black bezel and glass overlay.
Featuring a 2.8″ display with 320×240 16-bit color pixels and a single-touch capacitive touch overlay. The plate uses the high speed SPI interface on the Pi and can use the mini display as a console, X window port, displaying images or video etc. Best of all it plugs right in on top! Read more.
