When your daughter drowns your gadgets, there's only one thing to do - take it apart, investigate the components and take pictures!

Which Camera Module is right for your #RaspberryPi project? Official or aftermarket? New or old? Standard or NoIR?

There's also the AdaFruit Spy camera (adafruit.com - Spy Camera for Raspberry Pi ID: 1937 - $39.95 : Adafruit Industries, Unique & fun DIY electronics and kits) which I used successfully at last years PiWars.
Only really useful if you want the smaller size of course.

Story

An average man learning the Raspberry Pi
Introduction
I'm not a programmer, coder, hacker, electrician or even a doctor - I'm a regular guy, with a regular office job, that somehow got in to the Raspberry Pi. 

I started my blog to share what I learn, as a lot of the time it isn't easy and finding answers can be quite difficult...hence the name Average man Vs Raspberry Pi!
