Raspberry Pi Zero v1.3 Available With Increase Production!

Do you have a Raspberry Pi Zero?


Chances are you don’t but you wish you did.  It sounds like the organization was caught off gaurd by the demands.  They sold out of every batch within minutes.


When we launched Raspberry Pi Zero last November, it’s fair to say we were blindsided by the level of demand. We immediately sold every copy of MagPi issue 40 and every Zero in stock at our distributors; and every time a new batch of Zeros came through from the factory they’d sell out in minutes. To complicate matters, Zero then had to compete for factory space with Raspberry Pi 3, which was ramping for launch at the end of February.

The good news is, they took that downtime to make the popular request of adding a FPC connector for a camera module.

This means we’ll be seeing some tiny Camera projects.  Plenty of DIY Spy cameras and undoubtedly some drones with cameras.

The best news is that they’re bumping up production.  I personally have two being shipped to me right now!



Don’t forget that the organization is having a little celebration by sending up a Pi Zero with a camera on a high altitude ballooning (HAB).

To celebrate our having designed the perfect high altitude ballooning (HAB) controller, Dave Akermanwill be launching a Zero, a camera and the new GPS+RTTY+LoRa radio board that he designed with Anthony Stirk, from a field in the Welsh Marches later today. You can follow along here and here, and in the meantime marvel at the Jony Ive-quality aesthetics of today’s payload.
