Arducam for Raspberry Pi Ultra Low Light Camera, 1080P HD Wide Angle Pivariety Camera Module Based on 1/2.8Inch 2MP STARVIS Sensor IMX462, Compatible with Raspberry Pi ISP and Gstreamer Plugin

  • Based on Sony 2MP IMX462 STARVIS color sensor
  • Ultra Low Light: Minimum illumination: 0.01Lux
  • Wide Aperture: F.N0 0.95(Allow more light enter)
  • Wide Compatibility: Compatible with all libcamera-based apps maintained by the RPi foundation, like Gstreamer, OpenCV
  • More Applications: Night vision, home security, machine vision and so on


Arducam Pivariety is a Raspberry Pi camera solution to take the advantage of using its hardware ISP functions. For a long time, Raspberry Pi users are limited to use the closed-source official supported camera driver and camera modules (V1/V2/HQ). Now Arducam made it possible to provide well-tuned ISP for Pivariety camera modules with Auto Exposure, Auto White Balance, Auto Gain Control, Lens Shading Correction, etc.

This B0333 is a new member of Arducam Pivariety series, which adopts a 1/2.8Inch 2MP STARVIS sensor IMX462, assembled with a wide aperture M16 lens, so as to can get much more decent image quality than the Official cameras in low light conditions.


  • Surveillance cameras
  • FA cameras
  • Industrial cameras
  • Autonomous mobile robots, UGV/UAV, ADAS, etc.
