Now that's more like it. Clean and straight pins, shipped in the original fab tray.

While waiting for the parts to arrive, I obtained a used Wolfvision presentation camera. It fills a 1280x720 image at 30fps with an area of a little under 1/4 of the chip, so it will work well for inspection and soldering.

I'll probably have time to solder one on this coming weekend.
