Mmm I really like this picture

I did some more field testing with the v3 module... really not a conclusive test... bad subject (everything is dead, no leaves). The HQ cam is looking more and more attractive though. The 35mm shots for example I'm really impressed with for instance:

Look at that Onyo! That's a sees pound onyo

Anyway it dose have chromatic aberration (purple around edges)

Video of today's escapade

Early design of the clip, slide thing to swap camera modules

Oh man... I already have another camera in the works... I ordered this 2.4" diagonal display... oh man... it will be part of this project still though... but the orange camera's interface is not good...

I also will double up the battery packs so the camera lasts longer

So pretty much combine the interfaces between the modular cam and the pi zero hq cam (I like the dedicated 5 buttons and back button) and spring shutter from modular pi cam... will be all back. The orange makes it look like a toy ha.

I will look into a more ergonomic design but the modular idea is key (compute in center section).

Noooo it's like an obsession, I keep making these cameras

This one is different... the display is bigger
