Enable the Raspberry Pi Camera

I got one of the cameras that use the port on the Pi. Here’s how to enable it:

Open the raspi-config tool from your Terminal:

sudo raspi-config

Select Enable camera and hit Enter, then go to Finish and you’ll be prompted to reboot.

You can refer to more documentation here on how to test and use it.
