Raspberry Pi High Quality Camera, 12.3MP IMX477 Sensor, High Sensitivity, Supports C- and CS-mount Lenses
Raspberry Pi High Quality Camera

Higher Resolution & Sensitivity, Compatible with Raspberry Pi series boards

The Raspberry Pi High Quality Camera is the latest camera board from Raspberry Pi Foundation. It adopts the IMX477R sensor, and requires a C- or CS-mount lens to work. It is compatible with Raspberry Pi series boards, offers higher resolution (12.3MP) and higher sensitivity (nearly 50% greater area per pixel for improved low-light performance) than the existing Camera Module V2.

The Raspberry Pi High Quality Camera could be an ideal alternative for the Camera Module V2, suits industrial and consumer applications like security camera, and other specialist optical devices which require higher level of visual fidelity.
