Please note: Software control of the IR-CUT filter is no longer available due to changes in Raspberry Pi OS. The module will however continue to automatically adjust.
This Arducam 5MP NOIR camera module for the Raspberry Pi is designed for both daylight and night vision photography with its built-in automatic motorised IR cut filter and dual infrared LED illuminator boards.
The motorised IR cut filter can be switched on/off automatically, whilst the infrared LEDs are automatically set on/off according to the light environment.
Two cables are included, one for the Raspberry Pi 4/3/2 and one for Pi Zero models.
To use this camera with a Raspberry Pi 5, you will need to buy this adapter cable!
- Automatic IR Cut Filter: On for daylight colour accuracy, off for IR night vision
- IR Corrected Lens: Features low dispersion glass that greatly reduces focus shift and chromatic aberration - focuses the light of different wavelengths on to an image plane at the same location unlike some other lenses
- IR LED Illuminator: Triggered by the light sensor that decides whether the light condition is poor and needs to be improved
- 1× Camera Board with 5MP OV5467 sensor and IR corrected lens
- 2× IR LED illuminator
- 2× Heat Sinks
- 1× 150 mm/5.9” FFC cable for Pi 4/3/2
- 1× 150 mm/5.9” FPC cable for Pi Zero
Raspberry Pi not included
Note: Software control of the IR-CUT features is no longer available, yet still shows in the following document:
