I recently found out about the Raspberry Pi camera and knew that there would be some good uses for it here on the homestead. Both for my own knowledge and sharing on the blog / elsewhere. Using some basic scripts and a little hacking here and there I was able to get this computer/camera to automatically take pictures at regular intervals (every hour only from 5am – 8pm), automatically resize and strip all EXIF data, and send it over my home network to my desktop computer. Later I will make it so that it’ll upload a picture (one) to the blog daily so you guys can see at least a fraction of the stuff that I’m seeing.
