Excellent board for an addon for the Raspberry Pi! Was simply plug and play for the board and instantly worked when I booted the Pi. Only down side was that it switched video specifically to VGA, but I know that was the programming of the Pi and otherwise did exactly as it said it should! Read more

There are slits made to connect rpi camera module. Fits nice and sturdy due to nylon support material. Highly recommend getting it. the voltage regulator on this board gets pretty ... Read more
