Webcam vs camera module on pine64+
The camera module on the Raspberry PI is really quite good ( 8mp and 5mp ).  The software is good as well, and the video|stills capture is sharp and clear.

The Pine, not so much.

The camera works with Android, but is not the best;  it gets hot, uses a lot of current ( battery life killer ) and from a quality standpoint is about what you would have expected from a cheap phone camera 10 years ago.

The camera on the pine is useless in gnu+linux;  the driver ( even when it works, and that is marginal ) leaves artifacts ( streaks and color distortions ) on stills and vids.  This needs a lot of work.
