Unboxing the Raspberry Pi Camera

Installing the camera module

Raspberry Pi Camera

Camera from the outside

Source Code : https://bitbucket.org/gringog/raspberry-pi-projects/src/df160e826ba3ef35e65d608ae4eaf80e9d1cbe5a/camera?at=master

Saving the files to a samba share

sudo mount -t cifs -o username=pi,password=raspberry,rw,file_mode=0777,dir_mode=0777 //\ Passport/Camera /var/tlcam/net

Final result

The 5MP camera stores each jpeg about 2.5Mb, so a few hours can take up a lot of disk space, i mounted my external usb drive so i could save directly to that rather than using the R/RW of the SDCard.
