Build An Animated GIF Camera With A Raspberry Pi Zero

Build An Animated GIF Camera With A Raspberry Pi Zero

A camera that only shoots GIFs might sound a little ridiculous, and it is, but that doesn’t mean it’s not a fun use for a Raspberry Pi Zero.

Over on Hackaday, user nick.r.brewer walks you through making one for yourself. Alongside the Pi Zero, you’ll also need the camera module, a battery pack and a handful of small parts.

From there, everything’s packed inside a 3D printed case and wrapped up nicely. It’s a great looking final product that seems to work pretty well for what it is. It just shoots short GIFs. You’ll find the guide for how to put it together over on Hackaday, alongside a bunch of videos on Vimeo.
