Arducam Pivariety is a camera solution for the Raspberry Pi which takes advantage of the Raspberry Pi hardware Image Signal Processor (ISP) functions. Using Arducam Pivariety camera modules, users can experience better performance and a wider variety of camera and lens options.

For a long time, Raspberry Pi users have been limited to closed-source officially supported camera drivers. Now Arducam has made it possible to provide well-tuned ISP for Pivariety camera modules with Auto Exposure, Auto White Balance, Auto Gain Control, Lens Shading Correction and more!

This Pivariety module uses a Sony 16MP IMX298 sensor offering up to 4640×3472@10.000 FPS. The module comes with an adapter board, 200mm 15-pin FPC cable (1mm pitch), 73mm 15-pin to 22-pin FPC cable (0.5mm pitch) and an acrylic case with fixings.

To use this camera with a Raspberry Pi 5, you will need to buy this adapter cable!
