“We set the bar, and then we raised it ourselves. Just like these flagship phones, your Raspberry Pi now has an ultra high-res camera too. And just like them, your Pi can take still images at a breathtaking resolution (9152 x 6944) as well! Pi Hawk-eye is ready to make millions proud. This time, we are not just revolutionizing the hardware side, we want this camera to be the “extra sauce” that sets Pi apart and puts the platform light years ahead of its game, we want this to be the tipping point of sophisticated embedded vision/camera systems.”

“What’s better than fixed/manual-focus? Autofocus. And What’s better than autofocus? DSLR-like focus control. Here’s what it means: You can now open a preview window on a Raspberry Pi, zoom in for a super close-up view, move up/down/left/right (ePTZ) to pick anything, set/adjust the focus, and then take a photo. Now imagine what you can do with a feature like this.”
