Raspberry Pi Zero Gets A Camera Connector, More Units Pushed Into Production To Meet Demand

The Raspberry Pi Zero, the cheap, $US5 ($7) version of the popular computer, has been notoriously hard to find since its initial release. Today, they're releasing a new model that adds in a camera connector. They have also acknowledged the demand, so hopefully these newer versions will be a bit easier to track down. The only real difference in the new version of the Zero is the camera connector that connects to the official camera, but considering how many camera projects are out there, it's a welcome addition. In their blog post, the Raspberry Pi foundation also acknowledges the fact they were a bit blindsided by the demand, and says there are around 30,000 units shipping out today, with increased production on the way. So, hopefully you'll actually be able to track one down now. In the Australia, that means checking out places like Little Bird Electronics.

    So now we have:

    The original Pi model A,
    The Pi model B,
    The Pi Compute Model,
    The Pi Zero,
    The Pi 2 (Model B gen 2),
    The Pi 3 (Model B gen 3),
    And now... the Pi Zero with Camera Interface?

    That's seems like a lot of variations.

      you missed

      Pi model A+
      Pi model B+ (4 usb)

        Sorry! That makes NINE versions all up.
        Which one has gigabit ethernet, USB 3.0 and / or SATA ?
