It has been a while since I've had my pi CSI CAM. My original plans were to make somewhat of a baby monitor with the CSI CAM. I had started messing around with python and point recognition so that way I can take a photo of the baby every day in the same position allowing me to see the growth of the baby, but I soon realized that I won't have anything to record since my baby isn't due until December. I had then received a freedom board from E14 and I thought why not make a soldering video. I went ahead and set my Pi on my work bench when I came to realize that I didn't have a monitor or a long enough HDMI cable but I came across an old school pair of sony LCD glasses and thought, "RASPI Glasses. AWESOME!" I started by plugging in the component cable, booted it up, and, to my surprise, I got a visual display and went straight into the desktop.

One thing that I learned from taking stills with the CSI CAM to video is that if you want to take a long video it's easiest to use the "raspivid -t 9999999999 -o movie.h264" command and, when you are done, just ctrl-c out. You can view one of the videos I took on my blog about soldering headers on the Freescale. Thanks for reading.
