Re: PI Zero W - why no info on this site?

£9.50 is not a lot to pay for the convenience of integrated WiFi/BT ... A particular advantage is a Zero W can be a USB peripheral while using WiFi/BT. ... The only things which would make it better for me are an external antenna connector ( for which there seems to be solder pads already ), and ba...

That seems like a #PostTruth reply! It sort of works, but most things are out focus except either the edge or the centre, but not both. To name just one major issue.

Re: Solution planned for the bad lenses of the V2 8MP RasPi

... But there seems to be a market for compatible cameras with higher grade optics. Almost anything is better than the "New" V2 modified camera with its Sony CCD. Even with the unexplained lens adjuster that comes with it. There is not a working Pi camera available aside from clones of the old V1 c...
