Tutorial 11: Setup the Pi Camera

To be able to catch our cookie thief we are going to have to take pictures with our Raspberry Pi. The Raspberry Pi Foundation has put out a camera specific for the Raspberry Pi - and that's the camera we are going to use!

In this tutorial I will show you how to connect the Pi Camera and test it out using Bash commands included in the Raspbian OS.

This tutorial is a little older (published in 2015!). The main principles are still relevant, so I haven't needed to update this lesson.
