Because the Raspberry Pi zero is unavailable I have decided to upgrade to a Raspberry Pi Zero 2 W. The added processing power will mean faster transfer of videos from the Pi to my PC. From The Pi Hut I have also got a protective case for the Pi, as well as a Zero Cam to have as a replacement for my current camera.

The order was shipped on October 2, arrived in Finland on October 9 and I got it yesterday October 23! Note to self: it is a good idea to pay a little bit more for shipping instead of relying on the Finnish postal service.
