This small Arducam Mini 2MP Plus OV2640 SPI camera module is great for using with the Raspberry Pi Pico and other platforms such as Arduino.
This is the updated ArduCAM-M-2MP-Plus version which reduces the complexity of the camera control interface!
Connected via GPIO pins, this module allows you to add a camera to low-cost microcontrollers without a dedicated camera interface, and also provides the capability to add multiple cameras to a single microcontroller! You can also swap out the M12 lens for other M12 options to customise your camera project! See the resources section below for links and further information.
The 2MP Plus is an optimized version of previous Arducam camera shields and is a high-definition 2MP SPI camera, which reduces the complexity of the camera control interface. It integrates a 2MP CMOS OV2640 image sensor and provides miniature size, as well as an easy-to-use hardware interface and open source code library.
The modular mini can be used with multiple platforms such as Arduino, Raspberry Pi, Beaglebone Black and more - as long as they have an SPI and I2C interface.
