I have a raspberry pi zero and a NoIR camera and the cable to attach the two.
I followed this tutorial (or one similiar) to add WiFi to my Zero and it works. However, when I plug the camera in, it doesn't seems to connect to the wifi. I don't have a micro HDMI adapter so I really have no idea what's going on. The only way that I connect is via SSH. I set up the OS on the SD card in my raspberry pi 3.
It seems that I can't have the camera and the WIFI functioning at the same time. How do I test if this is the case?
Is it even possible to have the camera running when the WIFI is hacked on like in the tutorial?
I've tested the actual camera on the PI3 and it works, so it may be the Zero's camera cable, how do I test if that works?
As Steve points out in the comments, this could be a power issue. I've found that (when connected properly) the camera knocks out the power. So what I was experiencing before was probably the camera not being connect properly which is why it wouldn't work (duh).
So an additional question is now how do I get sufficient power to the WiFi and camera without damaging anything? What is the sufficient amount of power?
