This is my second test of the timelapse/video facilities of a Raspberry Pi with the camera on top.
So I did a standard RPi Cam Web Interface installation, on jessie this time since the installer is not completely finished at the moment for jessie. It went without a problem again. Only advice I have is to configure the wireless interface before adding the RPi software, so that Apache sees both ethernet and wireless. The WLAN with long antenna operates fine in the garden!

When surfing for information on 3.5 ” TFT touchscreens for the Raspberry Pi, to improve the TinyLCD experience, I stumbled upon AliExpress where several shops offer a 3.5″ LCD TFT Touch Screen Display for incredible low prices.
So I ordered two for the price of $14,85, postage included. A acrylic case and stylus is also included in that price! The shop Soonics has good reviews, but you never know if one can trust that.
Here my experiences with the screen: quite slow refresh, not too high contrast, crisp screen, touch works, software works but is already outdated, but considering the price this screen is well worth the money! If I compare it to the NeoSec screen it is a better deal for applications with a high contrast theme and no demand on smooth video.
One of the exciting projects with the Raspberry Pi and the camera used to be the timelapse video.
And it has been the main reason I bought a camera and a case fit for timelapse.
With all the different revisions and the two major supplier it will come as no surprise the packaging has varied quite a bit. I have kept the boxes of my Raspberry Pi’s, shown here. Read More
I backed another kickstarter aimed at the Raspberry: Joey This can be very handy as a troubleshooting aid on a headerless project! Funded at November 6th!
On this page I will show you how to access the Raspberry Pi in a Windows environment:
– acces the home directory on the Pi with sftp
– How to access Windows machines by name
– access via PuTTY
– access via Remote desktop client XRDP
– setting up a shared folder on the Raspberry Pi via Samba
– accessing a shared folder on the network via Samba
– use Bonjour to resolve names
Not my first steps with the Raspberry Pi, I owned my first Pi since 2012, one of the first batch produced. Now I have acquired a Raspberry Pi 2 B with the official 7″ touchscreen display, the latest and greatest and plan to do a lot of projects with Raspberry Pi’s and Arduino’s. I run wheezy (just to let jessie come of age, until the users get used to it and share information, and the annoying bugs are solved. Read More
