Yippee camera, that's what I wanted.
$5 PC + $30 camera.
Robots, drones etc
I don't see any 10 pack options :(

Adafruit must have been testing their webpage before

Eben has said they will be making them to the end of time.

:( Hoped it was audio out. I have lots of Pi's using audio, but the Pi camera i bought is just sitting in a component box.

I'd rather have had a stencil of a unicorn than a camera socket.

Oh well.

No, the camera adapter cable is £4.

So same price as Zero. Does it have CPU and 512MB ram too? ;-)

LOL. Yep, £4 for a Pi Zero board, complete with camera connector.... No price rise..... But you want the 20 cent cable to actually connect a camera to it and that will double the price to £8! Seriously, £4 for that 15cm "cable"....

Finally managed to order one from Adafruit. Should have it in a couple of days but I'm not sure what I'm going to do with it. The RPi3 is a much better choice for my current project.

China will have those cables at 1/10 of the price in a day or two....

The blog post mentioned it's the same micro connector as on the compute module kit,
does this mean we can use the adaptors/cables interchangeably?

@clivem - It's a far cheaper, and neater option than the CMIO adapter board. @mikerr I assume that will work too.

Is there something weird going on with the forum database, how on earth did this pic get inserted in an old thread ?

Makes me wonder if they've routed all 4 CSI lanes to the connector on the Zero - that was the reason for the connector change on the CM.
I doubt it, and 2835 isn't really going to be able to make use of the extra incoming bandwidth for anything terribly useful anyway, but it would be cute.

I suspect it also gives a cheaper and more robust option for attaching a second camera to a CMIO by buying the £4 cable instead of the £15 display/camera adapter board.

Because they linked to an Adafruit image at https://cdn-shop.adafruit.com/1200x900/2885-00.jpg, and Adafruit have obviously reused the URL.
(Hopefully they'll never insert a dubious picture under that URL, or there could be some red faces)

They should, yes; the ribbon cable is a flexy version of the adaptor. (And people who are finding it too rich for their blood can always make one with flying wires!)

"There are roughly 30,000 new Zeros out there today, and we’ll be making thousands more each day until demand is met."
That is quite disappointing given it was said a 250K order was placed over a month ago with predicted delivery within two to three weeks.

I thought that 250K order and a ramping up towards 50K per month was meant to alleviate the problems we have seen since its launch, bring buying multiples closer, but it seems it is simply more of the same.

If the 30K today are shared equally between the four distributors that is just 7,500 each. It also suggests 150 per box in the pallet shot earlier. I hadn't imagined it would be that low.

As for a CSI connector; that does nothing for me, but if it helps satisfy those wanting to use it in HAB or as a cheap webcam and it generates income from sales of camera units and cables then fair enough. I imagine it will also increase Zero sales which will put more short term pressure on availability.

Got my PiZero + Cam cable. I had already settled for a solution to read the positions of game pegs using four IR leds and one IP transistor. Now when the PiZero has a cam interface I could skip the extra electronics and use a camera to see where the pegs have moved.

Why, oh why did you add the camera. Now I have too many choices for my HeroQuest board game.
