Raspberry Pi Webcam

Oct 20, 2020

I stumbled down a rabbit hole Raspberry Pis and webcams and ended up with this attached to my monitor:

Respberry Pi Cam

I found a blog post from Dave Hunt and a Hackaday project for a Raspberry Pi webcam which lead me to this creation.

In comparison to my Logitech C920, it just looks better. The Logitech focus would jump all over the place on me and it would severly blowout my face. Using my Raspberry Pi HQ Camera, I can manually set the focus and aperature and it never changes on me. The image looks better and I get a nice bokeh effect on the background.

The camera case and camera mount are both 3D printed designs from Thingiverse. It is currently running the showmewebcam firmware.
