Case for new Raspberry Pi Camera V2 - 8MP ?

by BillPretty on Wed Jun 09, 2021 1:51 pm

I am using a new Raspberry Pi Camera V2 - 8MP camera in my video projects.
Does anyone know where I can get a case for it ?
All of the ones that I have found are for the older version.

This enclosure is supposed to work with v1 and v2.

Works with Pi Camera v1 and v2.
...
Please note: the Pi Camera v2 (8 Megapixel) is just a bit thicker than the original, which might cause the camera to press against the case and cause blurry images, depending on how it is focused. The easiest way to fix is remove the sticky-rubber spacer that is between the camera module and PCB. Gently remove the camera module from the PCB, peel off the spacer, and re-plug the camera module. Problem solved!
