Pro Mini Camera Mount for Raspberry Pi Zero
- The Pi Hut
This is the Pro model of the Mini Camera Mount, which includes a longer base section designed to hold your Raspberry Pi Zero!
Raspberry Pi, Camera, cables and tripod not included.
This mount is designed to create an affordable, tripod-compatible solution to help you monitor "things" with your Pi Zero and Official Raspberry Pi Camera Module 3 - great for keeping an eye on 3D prints, monitoring rooms, access points, timelapsing plants and more!
You don't need to mount it on a tripod as it will happily sit on a desk or shelf, but it has a 1/4" hole ready in case you do (you'll need a nut as this isn't threaded).
There are some great ready-to-go software/OS options out there for these kinds of projects, such as OctoPrint for 3D printers and MotionEyeOS for turning your Pi and camera module into an IP camera. Both of these options allow viewing on your smartphone too!
The mount comes as a kit which requires some simple assembly.
Now compatible with the latest Raspberry Pi Camera Module 3!
Updated following customer feedback!
Following feedback from customers, we've made the mount slightly thicker to give the little arms more strength. It's a very subtle change but the extra thickness avoids breaking the thin sections.
This makes it quite difficult to separate the two sections after the initial assembly, but there's no reason to do this anyway. Once it's built, leave it be (or just be very gentle!).
