    The original very first Pi Zero had no WIFI and no Camera connector. V 1.1 I think? I don't think its in production anymore. Then they added the camera connector, that's the V1.3 Zero. It's the one in your Cana Kit screen shoot. Then they came out with the Pi Zero W. It has the camera connector and the WIFI Bluetooth chip on it. And now there is the Zero W with the GPIO Header pre soldered on.
    Pimoroni sells the Zero, Zero W, and Zero W with header. I had added one of each to my cart and got no only one Pi per order warning. Not until I tried to actually go to checkout.
    The Zero W is 13.50 and the Zero is 6.67. In the UK I think they are advertised as 10 dollars for the Zero W and 5 for the Zero. The price of the Zero didn't go up when they added the camera connector. Something like that.

    EDIT: This is the one I bought @ Pimoroni, https://www.canakit.com/raspberry-pi-zero-wireless.html < Pi Zero Wireless

    This stuff is mostly so I can try and get my Rover working properly. A new Explorer pHat and a new Pi Zero W. And a few other odds and ends to tweak my Pirate Radio. A barrel connector for power, and dual RCA jacks that I can solder mount on a Proto board. Cleaning up loose ends so to speak. And a few other bits of stuff they had on sale that I actually have a use for.

    @caperjack hey Jack, how do you adjust the volume of your Speaker pHat, or do you bother? Your running that rig headless right? I'm thinking I may have to have a way to do it with some buttons or something?

    Just found something very interesting, I see a reference to "text to speech" here, https://github.com/pimoroni/speaker-...fe44ee4be85a13
    That's just what I want. =) That will let me use phrases for some of the buttons. If I can figure out all the hieroglyphics etc, lol.

    EDIT: Google found this, cool stuff, https://www.dexterindustries.com/how...erry-pi-speak/

    not running headless, Puddy drives me nuts when trying to connect ,I was looking just the other day as to how to adjust the volume but i didn't get far ,there is nothing in Raspbian, because im using a pi zero i guess.I have to do some more looking .,maybe something in the Pimoroni code.I think I'm loosing interest in learning new stuff ,,,I wasn't even a good student when i was in School and had a teacher pushing me . sometimes i think i need to start over ,like the first time i open my first Pi 2,and started googling on what the heck to do with it ..

    Just booted up my Desktop version, there is a speaker Icon in the tray with a volume slider just like Windows does it. If your booting to command line you'll never see it though. Going to boot up one of my Pi Zero's to have a look see in Real Raspbian. Just have to find one that has an SD card in it lol.

    Same deal with full Raspbian on my Zero W, speaker icon in the tray. I got some kind of weird psychedelic screen on boot up. I had done a apt-get dist-upgrade on it, must have something to do with that I guess? First time I've ever seen that screen, had to hit esc to get out? Oh snap, wait a minute, just figured it out, lol. I had installed xscreensaver, but forgot to disable it. It's swirl screen saver. Doah.

    hey jack its easy peasy, just type alsamixer at the command line, they use the up down arrow keys to adjust the volume. Can be done from putty too.

    I do believe I used to use Windows Remote Desktop to log in remotely. You have to install xserver or something xrdp on the Pi first though. I likely have the instructions in a crib note somewhere. Haven't done it in a while.
