New Raspberry Pi Zero

Have you placed an order for the Raspberry Pi Zero with us after April 7th? Good news – you will be receiving the newest version of the Raspberry Pi Zero! What is different with the new Raspberry Pi Zero? As of today, the Zero now includes a camera port for the awesome Raspberry Pi Camera. The remainder of the Pi Zero continues to be the same. Also, with that news it appears that production of the Zero is finally going to be stepped up so we may see a steady supply of Zeros in the coming weeks.

Want to get your hands on one of these upgraded Pi Zero? We highly recommend placing an order!

New Raspberry Pi Camera

Production of the original Pi Camera’s image sensor ended in 2014 so we have known for quite some time that there would be a new Pi Camera coming – it was only a matter of time! The new Pi Camera is a higher resolution an 8MP Sony IMX219 and features better color representation, better image quality, and better low light performance in addition to the increased resolution. At this time the video resolution / record rates are the same 1080P @ 30FPS, 720P @ 60FPS, and VGA @ 90FPS but using the new image sensor, the overall quality should be much better.

VIU Engineering Bridge Design Contest 2016

Once again we were invited to attend this years Vancouver Island University Engineering Bridge Design contest. Each year teams of first year engineering students form groups and attempt to build the best bridge crossing within budget and material constraints. This year the goal was to build a prototype bridge the proposed Tram / Pedestrian crossing in Alphen, Netherlands. Many of the students have been visiting us over the past few weeks, picking up different parts for their projects and seeking advice. It was really awesome to finally see how they used everything to create their bridges. All of the bridges looked great!

Raspberry Pi 3

Good news if you have a Raspberry Pi 3 on order with us – we are extremely happy to say that we have a ton of Raspberry Pi 3 in stock and will be shipping out all Pi3 backorders / preorders by Friday! If you haven’t ordered one, there are quite a few still available right here: Raspberry Pi 3!

Initial thoughts on the Pi 3: We have had some time to play around with the new Pi in the shop – while the 3 does not have that same kick in the pants performance jump over the Pi 2 as the Pi 2 did over the B+ when it was first introduced, the added performance is still quite noticeable. Our favorite change by far is the removal of the spring loaded latching microSD slot. This was the number one cause of warranty issues with the Pi 2 so the change to a friction microSD slot (like those found on the Pi Zero) was a welcome sight! The WiFi seems to work well – it is definitely convenient having it on board along with Bluetooth. Overall it another solid improvement on the Pi flagship model – one can only speculate what they will come up with next!
