Arducam created this 8MP camera module to give Raspberry Pi users the option to easily swap out different lenses for compact camera projects.
It uses the same Sony IMX219 as the Official Raspberry Pi Camera Module V2 and uses the same set of Python commands as well - but this time you have the option to swap out the included M12 lens for an alternative, allowing you to customise your shot for your project. Check out our range of M12 lenses.
The module is capable of 3280 x 2464 pixel static images and also supports 1080p30, 720p60 and 640x480p90 video. It attaches to Pi by the dedicated standard CSI interface - the same way as the official camera.
To use this camera with a Raspberry Pi 5, you will need to buy this adapter cable!
To use this camera with a Raspberry Pi Zero, you will need to buy this adapter cable!
