Raspberry Pi Camera Quick Look

Hey All,

I got my Raspberry Pi Camera board in the mail today!  It was very easy to install.  The hardest part was waiting for apt-get upgrade to complete.  After that was done, a new camera option is available in raspi-config, and some new applications are available to run.  The apps are raspivid and raspistill, which takes videos and photos respectively.

I haven’t spent a lot of time with the software, that’s for the weekend, but I did try taking some pictures via the command line.  This is going to be an awesome add on!
