Getting to know the Raspberry Pi Camera and Pi Noir #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi

Useful post from the Element 14 Community on the Raspberry Pi Camera and the Pi Noir camera module.

The Raspberry Pi is capable of many great things but one of the most accessible and rewarding is something incredibly simple, taking a photograph. We take this for granted as a camera comes with our cell phone, but how do I take a photograph?
With our cell phone we open the camera application, frame the shot and then touch the screen to take a picture. But behind the scenes there are many steps to be taken in sequence in order to capture an image or a video.

In this tutorial we will learn via three projects how to use the official Raspberry Pi Camera to take a photograph using a command from the terminal, then using the Python AP and finally we shall record video in super slow motion!
The code and commands used in this tutorial will also work with the Pi Noir camera to capture low light images as essentially they are the same camera but the Pi Noir does not have an infra red (IR) filter which when used with an IR light source, such as an IR LED, it can see in the dark! Pi Noir is a great piece of kit and it enables nocturnal projects to be created such as a nature camera or CCTV system.
