    Try our free software project that uses a Pi and its HQ sensor to make a USB webcam [1]. You'll have a wide range of lenses [2] and cases [3] that people cook up for their personal use.

    Last time I commented here, there have been criticisms about the quality of the lens that the Pi foindation sell. We have discovered many other decent alternative lenses that help remedy the quality and distortion issue of the stock lenses. An example of a good guide is the commonlands lens guide [4].

    The software is very actively developed and we have a pretty supportive community with good software engineering practices. Check it out, you might even like it!
