Raspberry Pi Zero 2 W just released

The Raspberry Pi Zero 2 W looks great: 1 GHz 4 core 64 bit CPU with 512 MB RAM for $15 Raspberry Pi

Adafruit and ETA Prime have just released videos on the new board. At the stock clock, seems to run at 80% of the speed as the RP3. ETA prime has already overclocked to 1.3 GHz with a heat sink attached and it equals the RP3 speed

According to Ladyada, it was released in England today and a Adafruit is expecting a shipment in 2-3 days. You can sign-up on the waiting list at Adafruit and you’ll be notified when they are available for purchase

I never got my Pi Zero working, not sure if DOA or user error (likely this) but all my other Pis worked great.

This could be good for running octopi on the Prusa Mk3s. (3D printer in case are wondering)

The Prusa has a place to plug in a Raspberry Pi Zero, but the original Zero is too underpowered for the task.

Might need to look into this for my Lulzbot Tax 6.

I'm running octopi on a Pi 3B with my Prusa and it works great. From what I've seen, the Zero2 is about on par with the 3, so it should work well.

Microcenter has an Inland 1080P camera for the full-size Raspberry Pi for $9.99 Microcenter

I believe you’ll need this flex cable to attach it to the Zero connector. This cable Adafruit for $3.95 should work
