v2.1 Camera

The release of the new V2 Raspberry Pi Camera was well timed. The version 1 was just not good enough. Got the units on the 29'th of April 2016, not bad for South Africa since the release was something like the 25'th. 

The current test rig has 1xPi B+, 2x Pi2 and 1x Pi3.  The v2 hosting Pi's got a firmware update and I followed the instruction here to update the rest of the bits. 

No lens focus or other tweaks have been done.  A quick makeshift camera rig was also needed. 

On the left ( blue side ) Pi3 with Normal v2, middle the two v1 cameras on a separate Lego mount and the yellow box has a Pi2 with the NoIR v2 camera.  Each unit is set-up to take two images ... with the possibility of having different configuration arguments for each. 

Nothing scientific, just messing around a bit.
Some early testing: 

Thought I might have had the NoIR mixed at one point so I added an IR light source to check.
