This is a basic, classic Adafruit Raspberry Pi Camera Board Enclosure with a black base and a clear top. The case is as minimal as it gets, coming in just two pieces of polycarbonate that snap snugly together. This case will keep your Pi Camera safe and secure while also looking super sleek. Works with Pi Camera v1 and v2.

The enclosure was designed by Mike Doell – just like Adafruit's elegant, beautiful, and functional Pi Cases for Raspberry Pi Zero and Model B. Made of ultra-durable, super-glossy polycarbonate, it is both good looking and tough enough to toss into your pocket, bookbag, or toolbox. It has an easy-to-access slim opening for your camera cable to extend out from the camera module. The camera board sits nicely in the base, latching to the four little pegs, and the lid fits snugly on top. There's also a tiny hole in the lid so not to distort the capturing of images.

On the sides there are two slots so you can strap the camera to something, use zip-ties, tape, velcro straps, whatever!

On the back is a 1/4" tripod mount nut, so you can attach it to anything with a standard tripod screw. Note that to keep the enclosure compact Adafruit used a slim nut - so attach the case carefully and make sure not to push the tripod screw through the camera! Just turn it until you feel it touching the back of the camera and then unscrew a quarter turn.

This product comes with 2 case pieces. Raspberry Pi Camera Board is **not** included. No other cables or connectors or accessories are included!

  1. Review by Evan verified purchaser

    Great case - the tripod mount is super useful. The only thing I'd change would be to have the option of black plastic instead of transparent - I'm using a little 8mm circular IR filter lens in front of the camera lens, and the transparent plastic allows a little bit of light contamination.

  2. Review by Anthony verified purchaser

    This is the most economical of the RPi camera board cases, at $6 compared to $12 for the larger case. It is economic in space and does the same job as the larger case. It has the added benefit of a tripod mount thread at the back. If you have a movie tripod, you may have to turn the tripod's base plate 90 degrees.
    If you do purchase an RPi camera it's best to give it extra protection and in my opinion this particular case will be very adequate. (Posted on 13/07/2017)

    Excellent product. I have already used it to remotely photograph birds. (Posted on 14/03/2017)

  4. Review by Peter verified purchaser

    I used this mount to install the camera into a larger box with a cut-out the size of the clear lid. Found the clear lid sometimes didn't click definitely into place. (Posted on 7/03/2017)
