Arducam 13MP Pi Camera 4K, 1/3 Inch IMX135 for Raspberry Pi Camera, MIPI Camera Module, Plugged into Native MIPI CSI-2 Port on Raspberry Pi


Discontinued.  Only 2 unitS left

Item Description:

The Arducam 13MP MIPI camera module is mainly designed for Raspberry pi boards and it can be connected directly to RPi’s CSI-2 camera interface without additional hardware. This camera is based on 1/3 inch Sony IMX135 image sensor which adopts Exmor-R™ technology to achieve high speed image capturing with high sensitivity and low noise performance. “RGBW coding” color filter is employed and RGB primary color mosaic is reproduced on chip. High sensitivity, low dark current and smear-free features are achieved. It equips an electronic shutter with variable integration time.
This MIPI camera module can be used on other ARM, FPGA, DSP, or Nvidia TX1/TX2 hardware platform as well.


This camera and RPI driver doesn’t support ISP functions like AEC/AGC etc. Arducam SDK for this camera supports RAW/JPEG/H.264 format, and manual or software auto exposure/gain/white balance.



  • Support all Raspberry Pi Models: Same interface, all-model support. Directly plugged into Raspberry Pi’s native high-speed MIPI CSI-2 port. Support Raspberry Pi 4, Pi 3/3B+/3A+, CM3/3+, Pi Zero and more. NOTE: Raspberry Pi motherboard is not included in the package
  • Higher Resolution than V2 cameras: 1/3" 13MP Sony IMX135 Pi camera module to break Raspberry Pi camera’s 8MP ceiling with a better resolution and larger sensor
  • Frame Rates: Capture video at 4192x3120/12fps, 1080p/30fps, and 720p/60fps resolutions
  • Applications: Better for Raspberry Pi camera applications where higher resolutions are needed for capturing clearer images, such as advanced driver assistance (ADAS) and multimedia applications of virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR)
  • Disclaimer: Arducam MIPI cameras are for advanced users with a certain degree of development background. The RPI camera driver is not V4L2 compliance, and it can’t work with native Raspberry Pi camera drivers, commands, and software. You have to use Arducam SDK and examples
