My latest project is an outdoor/trail cam I made using a raspberry pi and the camera module.

I’ve made a few updates since I took these pics, mainly I added a reusable dry pack and ditched the janky old desiccant pack that I found in an old shoe box. I plan to add a battery pack and solar charging later this summer.

Hardware list:
Raspberry Pi 3B
SanDisk Ultra 32GB
RPi CSI NoIR Camera Module v2
Cheap Chinese LED IR light
A plastic box from Hobby Lobby
Reusable Dry-Pack

Software list:
Raspbian Lite
Automated with a python-picamera script I’m constantly breaking
