High Quality Pi Camera

Raspberry Pi Wildlife Camera 2020

Using the latest High Quality Raspberry Pi Camera Module and a 16mm Telephoto Lens, it is possible to take some really nice quality wildlife photos.

I mounted the camera module onto a plastic project box, and installed a Raspberry Pi ZeroW inside. The whole box is mounted to a small tripod attached to a pole firmly mounted in the ground. I placed a plastic cover over the camera module and lens to give some protection from rain. The camera is pointing towards a perch over a small stream.

Some recent photographs are shown below (these are cropped images). Click on an image to open in a new tab, then click image again to enlarge. The motion detection software that I am using is PiKrellCam.
