Arducam Mini 16MP IMX519 NoIR Camera Module for Raspberry Pi 5, Zero

  • Minified: super compact form factor.
  • No Infrared Filter: perfect for night vision & multispectral applications.
  • 16 Megapixel: 2 times higher res than v2.
  • Fixed-Focus: great for UAVs, drones, robots, etc.
  • Highly Compatible: libcamera-ready, works with Pi Zero and Zero 2 w.
  • Field of View(FOV): 66°(H) x 49.5°(V) x 80°(D)


In order to meet the increasing need for Raspberry Pi Zero compatible camera modules, the Arducam team now released another add-on mini camera module that is fully compatible with Raspberry Pi Zero.

The board itself is tiny, at around 60mm x 11.5mm. The neck width of the camera module is 6mm, this highlight making it perfect for endoscope, spy surveillance, or other applications where size and image quality are important. It connects to Raspberry Pi Zero by way of a short ribbon cable. The camera is connected to the BCM2835 processor on the Pi Zero via the CSI bus, a higher bandwidth link that carries pixel data from the camera back to the processor.
