A new build from robotics enthusiast, Kevin McAleer, involves a very in-depth demonstration using the Raspberry Pi High-Quality Camera housed in a 3D-printed chassis, connected to a battery pack with an attached touchscreen rear 3.5" display.

Having cleverly named it the "Pikon" camera, a wordplay on the Raspberry "Pi" and Nikon camera brand, Kevin has explained the process of how he pieced together the build using his own 3D-design to create a functional, lens interchangeable, Pi-powered high-quality camera.
