Build A Raspberry Pi-Powered Touchscreen Point-And-Shoot Camera

Build A Raspberry Pi-Powered Touchscreen Point-And-Shoot Camera

The Raspberry Pi’s extra camera board won’t win any photography awards, but if you want to make your own camera entirely from scratch, Adafruit has a kit and guide for doing just that.

You’ll need a Raspberry Pi, the Raspberry Pi Camera Board, a touchscreen, a battery pack, and a few other parts. When you’re done assembling the camera, it will be a solid little point-and-shoot with built-in Wi-Fi (not to mention an operating system) so all your photos automatically upload to Dropbox. Head over to Adafruit for the full guide to build this for yourself.
