Raspberry pi zero + hd cam + tft

Sat Sep 18, 2021 10:17 am

Dear,
I'm planning on making a project that includes raspberry pi zero + hd camera or at least high Megapixels + touch screen.
Can i use any usb camera? and is the 13.2MP camera for raspberry pi compatible with raspberry pi zero?

The HQ camera works fine with the RPi zero. Please note that you will need another interface cable
(as the one supplied with is for use with a standard Pi), https://shop.pimoroni.com/products/came ... 2803891283
How do you intend to contact the TFT? Do we speak of a HDMI monitor?
A zero has only one USB interface; if you need more devices a hub will be required.

Thanks for reply,
Does using the HDMI + CSI use any of the GPIO in the raspberry pi zero? or they should be available for other uses?
