gst-rpicamsrc is a GStreamer wrapper around the raspivid/raspistill
functionality of the RaspberryPi, providing a GStreamer

apt-get install autoconf automake libtool pkg-config libgstreamer1.0-dev \
libgstreamer-plugins-base1.0-dev libraspberrypi-dev
For example, again on Raspbian:
./ --prefix=/usr --libdir=/usr/lib/arm-linux-gnueabihf/
sudo make install
Then, you can try out the camera with a pipeline line:
gst-launch-1.0 rpicamsrc bitrate=1000000 ! filesink location=test.h264
should produce a file called test.h264, while showing a preview window
on the screen.
