So you want to connect your Pi Camera up to your Raspberry Pi Zero? Well, this cable will allow you to do just that. 

The Pi Zero/W has a miniaturised ribbon connector compared to its big brother; the Pi 3. So to connect it up, you'll need this cable which adapts the larger format found on the Camera board, to the smaller Pi Zero format.

Tech Specs:

  • 15cm length

*Note that the Pi and Camera board are not included.

    Whether you have the normal RPi camera or the RPi PiNoir camera, this is a useful cable to connect to the RPi(W)Z's adapter. This also requires one to gently remove the cable connected to the camera's PCB by pushing out the white latches, pulling out the cable and putting in the new adapter and pushing in the latches. A similar operation is required when pushing the narrow end of the cable adapter into the RPi(W)Z's slot located at the opposite end from the microsd slot. (Posted on 13/07/2017)
