We’ve seen point-and-shoot cameras made with the Raspberry Pi before, but they’re always a bit clunky. Ben Heck shows off a way to slim it down so it’s actually useable in the real world.
The trick here is all about subtraction. Heck goes through each section of the Pi and removes as many things as he can. He does the same for the camera module and all the other parts. The end result is a point and shoot camera that’s actually the size you’d buy in the store. The video above guides you through the whole process to make it for yourself.
