The new official High Quality Camera module for the Raspberry Pi is here - take your Raspberry Pi camera projects up a gear with the 12 megapixel Sony sensor, integrated aluminium tripod mount and interchangeable lens compatibility!
Note: This camera module will not function without a lens (purchased separately)!
Note: To use this camera with the Raspberry Pi Zero, you will require a Zero Camera Adapter Cable.
The incredible new High Quality Camera module from Raspberry Pi offers a higher resolution (12 megapixels, compared to 8 megapixels), and sensitivity (approximately 50% greater area per pixel for improved low-light performance) than the existing Camera Module v2.
It features a Sony IMX477 sensor, a 200mm FPC cable for connection to your Raspberry Pi, a milled aluminium lens mount with integrated 1/4” -20 tripod mount and focus adjustment ring, and a C- to CS-mount adapter.
A lens cover is also included with the module and comes pre-fitted. There’s even a small screwdriver in the box for making adjustments.
It’s designed to work with interchangeable lenses in both C- and CS-mount form factors giving you ultimate flexibility with your Raspberry Pi camera projects. A C-CS mount adapter comes pre-fitted to the module.
We also have two lens options available in the store.
The High Quality Camera uses the same commands as the standard Raspberry Pi Camera Module, such as raspistill.
Raspistill and similar commands will query the camera firmware for the resolution of the sensors (as they already do today) and will default to 12 megapixels for the High Quality Camera.
The drivers for the High Quality Camera are also already in the latest Raspbian release as well, so upgrading your camera project with the High Quality Camera is a simple task.
Magnificent for Makers
A huge range of popular projects from time lapse photography to Raspberry Pi CCTV-style systems can be made double-awesome with the new High Quality Camera module. Shoot in greater detail, with improved low-light performance and take advantage of the range of available lenses to get the perfect shot.
Incredible for Industry
The High Quality Camera provides an alternative to the Camera Module v2 for industrial and consumer applications, including security cameras which require the highest levels of visual fidelity and/or integration with specialist optics.
The High Quality Camera is compatible with all models of the Raspberry Pi from the Raspberry Pi 1 Model B onwards, using the latest Raspbian software release.
