Comment Re:Raspberry Pi with camera (Score 5, Informative) 93

The 12 volt to USB was just one I had laying around the parts box. The camera was from The 64 GB card was bought at Costco. The instructions that I leveraged were from the installation instructions for the pi camera at I added a few scripts to manage the startup and storage of the video. When the unit powers up (when I start the car) it starts. When I shut the car down I press a button before shutting the car down that stops the recording and stores the video file and shutdowns the pi. Each time I run this in the car I have to park the car in the garage and transfer via wifi and ssh the video files. Its a hack at this point, but some of the video management stuff can be made better. The pi camera doesn't like the dark, but there are ways to make the pi camera IR sensitive by doing a little bit of surgery to remove the IR filter. I haven't tried it yet, but I'm sure that several others may be offering this version of the camera soon. Hope this helps,
