It has been told, that official Raspberry Pi camera is very sensitive to electro static discharge (ESD). Actually camera is pretty naked, so I believe that this is true. I was working with Arduino, Beagle Bone Black, Raspberry Pi etc; without problems, but it looks that my RPi camera died maybe because of (ESD), despite I touched ground before. I will work with another camera in future, so I would like to try to prevent ESD scenario.
- Are there any cheap camera holders or boxes which could cover camera electronics?
- What are good and easy hacks reduce this risk? My bet would be to use cardboard with rubber band.
