Images of the Raspberry Pi camera initially emerged in the later part of last year, and recently additional information about the add-on camera for the device is set to be released soon by the team working on the camera.

Official statements released indicated that the camera for the small-sized computer will feature a 5MP sensor that is normally found on a smartphone. The camera is currently being fine-tuned to allow it to offer optimal performance for users of the device. The Raspberry Pi camera is currently good enough for use, however the team is apparently working to make it an impressive addition to the pint-sized computer.

The upcoming add-on to the Raspberry Pi will reportedly be capable of recording 1080p videos and it will feature an integrated infra-red filter. However, the Raspberry Pi camera will not feature an optical zoom. But it is expected to allow users to attach any lens or filters that are normally found on the PentaEye for the iPhone of Apple.

The team working on the camera has not given indications on a specific release date for the camera add-on of the micro-computer. The earliest release date will be one month after, however it is possible for the add-on to be released at a much later date.

Users of the micro-computer are anxiously waiting for the release of the Raspberry Pi camera so that they can have another accessory to use together with their pint-sized computer.
