Mega 5MP SPI Camera Module with M12 Lens for Any Microcontroller

  • Alternative Lens: M12 Lens for manually focus adjustment. Replaceable M12 Lens options for you.
  • Super Easy Using: High-level commands built-in, easy as a DSLR
  • Quick Response & Power Saving: 94ms wake-up and consumption low as under 200mW
  • Sharp Image: 5MP Resolution which can capture clearer and shaper images
  • Wide Compatibility: Compatible with any Microcontroller with a single standard SPI interface


Arducam Mega 5MP Rolling Shutter camera is the latest product developed by Arducam Team. The Ultra High Stability&Accuracy and Open Source API of this camera can realize your project more effectively.
Arducam team is committed to creating more convenient and more efficient camera solutions. We have expanded the using scope of the image sensor, enabling the camera to realize your various projects.
The camera is featured Low Power Consumption and Super Sharp Image. Different from the Standard Mega 5MP Camera, we equip the camera with M12 Lens (Distortion<1.53%) which will allow you to manually adjust the focus at the different focus distances.


  • Assets Monitoring
  • Space Journey
  • Environmental Observation
  • Dynamics Capture
  • loT Automation


  • Easy Using: Extremely easy to use. High-level commands were built in so you manipulate the camera through API access like using a DSLR camera via button clicks.
  • Replaceable Lens: Equipped with an alternative M12 Lens with 75-degree HFOV. You can change to another M12 Lens that suits the default Lens Mount.
  • Multiplexing: Up to 4 cameras running on a single MCU by using an adapter board. They capture at the same time with sequential readout then.
  • Open Source SDK: The SDK is fully open-source with MIT license. A lean architecture with a hardware abstraction layer, enabling you to add a new MCU without effort.
  • One Fits All: It fits any microcontroller with a single standard SPI interface (either native or mimic). 8-bit, 16-bit, or 32-bit, ARM, RISC-V, or others. Arduino, STM8/STM32, ESP8266/ESP32, MSP430, Nordic, Renesas, and countless more.
