Resolution is better than a cheap USB webcam
on 29 February 2016
Prompt delivery and OK for the price, I guess. Resolution is better than a cheap USB webcam, but I'm not sure that makes a whole lot of difference to the overall picture quality. Unless you want to use it with one of the stock utilities that come with various Pi Linux distributions, beware -- it's absolutely horrible to program. The documentation (what little there is) suggests that it supports the standard V4L APIs, but to use that programming approach you need unofficial drivers of uncertain support status. There are no official C/C++ libraries so, to do anything nonstandard you've got to rely on third-party bits which may or may not work, or get to grips with the appalling MMAL API. None of this is the fault of the supplier -- it's the product itself. If you can get by using the stock utilities -- you just want to capture pictures to a file -- then I guess it's fine.
