Raspberry Pi Camera Module

Tue Apr 02, 2013 11:58 am

I have noticed that farnell.com have got Register your interest NOW!
for the Camera Module,

does anyone know where will be the module manufactured?

If I want the UK one, who would be best to order from?

There has not been any claim as to where they are manufactured as far as I have read. The UK / China preference is a debate as far as the Raspberry Pi itself. The camera though is speculative as to origins or being produced in more than one country.

I think I saw somewhere that suggested new volume availability will be late July or August.

On their website it says "All of our Raspberry Pi
models are manufactured in the UK"

does this apply for the Camera Board as well?

Where can I get a camera?

I tried Farnell (no stock), RS, a local distributor, NewIT -- none of them have the PI camera on stock. There is not even an expected availability date. Very sad.

Even on eBay I cannot find PI camera modules, though it used to have a couple..

either RS or Farnell - register your interest
or
put them in your basket if you can, and order that way

There's a new batch in production. Not sure when it will hit the shelves.

I appreciate the risk for you quoting lead times when the are largely out of your control, but can you give us any idea what the ETA is at the moment :D ?

I ordered from element14 on 16th and I got one delivered today.

It does not say on the board where it was manufactured, how strange ...
Nor it has any note on the packaging :(

Try ModMyPi:

https://www.modmypci.com/raspberry-pi-e ... mera-board

At 16:45 today (22nd July), they were still saying "In stock", but no indication of stock levels.
Good supplier, in my experience.

We cannot give away where the pixies make the camera boards (their desire for privacy outweighs the public interest), apart from to say, it's NOT at the bottom of the garden.
