In order to meet the increasing need for Raspberry Pi compatible camera modules. The ArduCAM team now released another add-on Mini camera module for Raspberry Pi series boards which is fully compatible with the official one.
The board itself is tiny, at around 300mm x 16mm. 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 by way of a short ribbon cable. The camera is connected to the BCM2835/BCM2836 processor on the Pi via the CSI bus, a higher bandwidth link that carries pixel data from the camera back to the processor. This bus travels along the ribbon cable that attaches the camera board to the Pi.
- Cellular phones
- Other battery-powered products
- Can be used in all Raspberry Pi platforms
- 【16MP for All Pis】The new Raspberry Pi camera features a 16MP Sony IMX519 sensor with a pixel resolution of 4656 x 3496, twice as high as the v2 camera and 40% higher than the HQ camera; it is compatible with any Raspberry Pi board with a MIPI/CSI interface and runs directly on the Raspberry Pi OS without much configuration.
- 【Crisper Images/Videos】The 16-megapixel camera can capture 1080p Full HD video at up to 30 frames per second and 720p HD video at up to 60 frames per second, and also provides an effective 80-degree field of view.
