This module was presented at the salon Electronica 2012 in Germany by RS Components. Specifications were as follows :

  • Sensor 5 Megapixels that should still be improved by the output of the module
  • Record video 1080 p x 264 to 30 FPS

The module would have a dedicated cable that plugs into one of the CSI connectors with an I2C interface. The display module will follow shortly (I monitor ! 🙂 )
