  • Clearer Images: Up to 12.3MP, max still resolution 4056(H) x 3040(V).
  • Less Hassle: Including 1/2.3″ 6mm focal length CS lens and the 3D file.
  • Refer to B0241 to get the camera bundle with the metal enclosure.
  • For Nvidia Jetson Nano and Xavier NX, refer to B0249 / B0250
  • For PC /laptop, you could purchase the HQ UVC camera module B0280 (with 6mm CS Mount Lens) or B0288 (with Varifocal C Mount Lens) directly.


The official Pi HQ camera is only available in one model. It doesn't come with a lens and it is also not easy for the users to find a case. To solve these pain points, Arducam released this camera module, a customized camera board with three-hole pitches and a 6mm CS lens. And you can download our 3D files to print your case as you like. This camera module supports all Raspberry Pi and PC/laptops (needing UVC adapter board B0278 not included).

  • Raspberry Pi board is not included in the package
  • Our camera module support 4-lane in hardware, but the 4-lane camera driver requires extra customization. Here is why:
    1. Standard Raspberry Pi and Jetson Nano/Xavier NX can’t physically support a 4-lane connection (both of them only have 2-lane CSI connectors). Only the Raspberry Pi Compute Module and some 3rd party Jetson Carrier Boards come with 4-lane hardware support. Therefore, it’s not a general need.

    2. Extra works, specifically camera drivers, are required for a 4-lane connection other than the 4-lane physical connector. And the drivers are limited by the performances of the platform itself. For example, 4-lane can’t unlock 4k video on Raspberry Pi because the VideoCore does not currently support it. Jetson Nano is also to some extent limited because of the encoding capabilities. You need to make sure you really need it.
