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 21MP IMX230 Exmor RS™ colour sensor, offering up to 5344×4012@9 FPS. The module comes with a 150mm 15-pin FPC cable (1mm pitch), 150mm 15-pin to 22-pin FPC cable (0.5mm pitch) and an acrylic case with fixings.

The module comes with two FPC cables, one for your Pi 4/3/2 and another for your Pi Zero.

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