Adafruit Raspberry Pi Camera Board Case with 1/4" Tripod Mount

Notify me when this product is available:

This is a basic, classic Adafruit Raspberry Pi Camera Board Enclosure with a black base and a clear top. The case is as minimal as it gets, coming in just two pieces of polycarbonate that snap snugly together. This case will keep your Pi Camera safe and secure while also looking super sleek. Works with Pi Camera v1 and v2.

The enclosure was designed by Mike Doell – just like our elegant, beautiful, and functional Pi Cases for Raspberry Pi Zero and Model B. Made of ultra-durable, super-glossy polycarbonate, it is both good looking and tough enough to toss into your pocket, bookbag, or toolbox. It has an easy-to-access slim opening for your camera cable to extend out from the camera module. The camera board sits nicely in the base, latching to the four little pegs, and the lid fits snugly on top. There's also a tiny hole in the lid so not to distort the capturing of images.

On the sides there are two slots so you can strap the camera to something, use zip-ties, tape, velcro straps, whatever!

On the back is a 1/4" tripod mount nut, so you can attach it to anything with a standard tripod screw. Note that to keep the enclosure compact we used a slim nut - so attach the case carefully and make sure not to push the tripod screw through the camera! Just turn it until you feel it touching the back of the camera and then unscrew a quarter turn.

Please note: the Pi Camera v2 (8 Megapixel) is just a bit thicker than the original, which might cause the camera to press against the case and cause blurry images, depending on how it is focused. The easiest way to fix is remove the sticky-rubber spacer that is between the camera module and PCB. Gently remove the camera module from the PCB, peel off the spacer, and re-plug the camera module. Problem solved!

 

This product comes with 2 case pieces. Raspberry Pi Camera Board is not included. No other cables or connectors or accessories are included!
