  Yes, Camera does work nicely on B4, with right versions of software.
Camera has many etoys tiles so in better shape and with some textual
coding, you can do and (explain) simple filtering of images and stuff
like edge detection.  (Something better than tiles but more accessible
than Smalltalk coding would be desired here.)

  For the audio part, tile support is largely missing and I'd think it
is nice to have, I think.

  Thank you!
