I designed a bed mount for a Pi camera 2 in conjunction with the PrintrBot RGBW LED. This will allow you to do "lights out" printing with firmware that supports it.

It's on Thingiverse:


Firmware that supports RGBW LED is here:

Hi...the mounting holes on both v1 and v2 RPi cameras are on 21 mm centers, so the 20 mm spacing of the M12 mount you link isn't a perfect fit. Depending on your mounting screw size, you may still be able to force it. Second, you have to manually cut or file down a notch in the M12 mount for the micro-flex cable that comes out of the camera module. That isn't too hard, but if you want, there is also a M12 mount specifically designed for the RPi cameras, with a notch already.
