The Raspberry Pi foundation has revised the design of their original camera module for the Raspberry Pi with the Camera Module v2. It's a high quality, 8-megapixel Sony IMX219 image sensor custom designed as an add-on board for the Raspberry Pi. It features a fixed focus lens, is capable of 3280 x 2464 pixel static images, and also supports 1080p30, 720p60 and 640x480p60/90 video. It attaches to Pi by way of one of the small sockets on the board upper surface and uses the dedicated CSI interface, designed especially for interfacing to cameras. The module comes with a 150mm Flexible Ribbon Cable, but we have other options available from Adafruit.

The board itself is tiny, at around 25mm x 23mm x 9mm. It also weighs just over 3g, making it perfect for mobile or other applications where size and weight are important.

Technical Details

  • 8 megapixel camera capable of taking photographs of 3280x2464 pixels
  • Capture video at 1080p30, 720p60 and 640x480p90 resolutions
  • All software is supported within the latest version of Raspbian Operating System
  • Applications: CCTV security camera, motion detection, time lapse photography
  • Dimensions: 25mm x 23mm x 9mm
  • Weight (camera board + attached cable): 3.4g

  • Now that we have decked out our Lulzbot Taz 6 3D Printer with a really nice looking acrylic enclosure, I'm just about ready to turn on some serious 3D printing work. But before I dive into that endless pool of fun, it's a good time to take 5 minutes and set up our Taz 6 and it's OctoPrint Server with a bed-mounted camera and light system. That way I can monitor my prints from the other side of the warehouse using OctoPrint, and m...
  • Mass SD card Image Writer
  • We've built a mass SD card writer using a Raspberry Pi 3 Model B, some USB hubs and SD card readers. This beast has enough ports to write 49 SD cards at once! At Core Electronics, sometimes logistics hang-ups mean that suppliers cannot meet our demand for pre-flashed SD cards. During these periods we have to pick up the slack by manually imaging blank SD cards we source ourselves. Of course, this is a super-tedious process, and ...
  • IoT Plant Monitor
  • So, my wife wanted to have some small plants in the house. I didn’t, so we compromised, and got some plants. The only thing is that neither of us remembers to water them, so I wanted to build a sensor array to monitor the moisture content of the soil, and notify us when they needed watering. We’ve got 3 plants, all fairly close to each other, and I wanted to create an IoT project so that it could send an email notifi...

    It works and it's a camera. No instructions included. Which means some searching but this will save you some clicks. To use the camera "sudo raspi-config" and enable raspberry pi camera then "sudo modprobe bcm2835-v4l2". I'm using the app "motion" but test it with "raspistill -o image.jpg" to take a picture.

    Great camera for the Pi that is a huge improvement over the already impressive v1.2 camera. The only thing that could improve it more would be the addition of an M12 lens holder, so that alternative (wide/narrow/zoom) lenses could be used, maybe the Raspberry Pi Foundation will surprise us with the v3 (Posted on 22/08/2016)
