Make your own Cloud-connected point-and-shoot camera
This project explores the Adafruit PiTFT touchscreen and the Raspberry Pi camera board to create a simple point-and-shoot digital camera. One can optionally use WiFi and Dropbox (a cloud file storage and synchronization service) to automatically transfer photos to another computer for editing.

Fit the cover into the top part, with the camera holes aligned. Insert the camera ring part into the top part. Use a short ribbon cable to connect the Pi Camera. With the camera and touch screen mounted to the pi, position the pi camera to the back of the pi, covering the ethernet port. Align the camera upright and insert it into the top enclosure part, the pins on the cover part should fit into the center mounting holes of the pi cam. Position the top part onto the pi. Carefully fit the bottom part onto the touch screen. Press to snap fit them together. Tripod mount can be attached to the bottom of the camera, align up the audio and s-video ports. You can alternatively print the pitouch-band part in flexible material to hold the tripod mount to the camera. To attach a lens, insert a 12mm split ring into the camera ring piece. The photojojo lens use magnets for mount and connects to the split ring.
Adafruit was founded in 2005 by MIT engineer, Limor "Ladyada" Fried. Her goal was to create the best place online for learning electronics and making the best designed products for makers of all ages and skill levels. Since then Adafruit has grown to over 25 employees in the heart of NYC. We've expanded our offerings to include tools, equipment and electronics that Limor personally selects, tests and approves before going in to the Adafruit store. We pride ourselves on having great prices, the best customer service, technical support and fast shipping. We hope we can assist you on your journey of learning - At Adafruit we celebrate engineering happiness!
