Our IR-CUT Night Vision Camera features two high-intensity Infrared LED spotlights for nighttime recording with your Raspberry Pi!
This is the standard version with a 75.7 degree Field of View. We also stock the 'B' version which has a 40-degree Field of View.
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!
The IR LEDs are powered directly from the CSI port, and are capable of lighting an area at a distance of up to 8m! In testing, the best images were captured at a distance of 3m to 5m. The camera also features an adjustable 3.6mm focal length and 75.7-degree viewing angle.
This Raspberry Pi night vision camera uses the same OV5647 as the standard Raspberry Pi camera, and is, therefore, able to deliver a crystal clear 5MP resolution image or 1080p HD video recording at 30fps!
Note: The current version of Raspberry Pi OS does not support auto IR-cut. The config.txt entry as part of the installation is now ignored by the OS. You can either use an older version of Raspberry Pi OS, or attach the camera's control pin to a GPIO pin for code control (see Wiki for more info).

- Mounting Hardware
The LEDs intensity is limited by the Raspberry Pi power supply, please ensure you have an adequate Raspberry Pi power supply installed. LEDs running at full intensity can get hot, please take care during prolonged use.
The IR LEDs can be bolted to the body of the camera using the included bolts. This connects the 3.3V supply to the boards and secures them in place. If you need to adjust the ambient light threshold (to change when the infrared LED's toggle), there is a tiny adjustable potentiometer on each LED board, you can turn it to change the threshold. Please ensure any fitting or adjusting is completed prior to plugging the device into the Raspberry Pi and switching it on.
Please follow this guide on how to install the Raspberry Pi Camera for details on how to set the board up!
