Raspberry Pi High Quality Camera – 12.3 Megapixel (Sony IMX477)
The Raspberry Pi High Quality Camera is the latest camera accessory from Raspberry Pi. It offers higher resolution (12 megapixels, compared to 8 megapixels), and sensitivity (approximately 50% greater area per pixel for improved low-light performance) than the existing Camera Module v2, and is designed to work with interchangeable lenses in both C- and CS-mount form factors.
- 12.3-Megapixel high-resolution Sony IMX477 sensor
- 1.55μm × 1.55μm Pixel Size – double the pixel area of IMX219 for improved low-light performance
- Back-illuminated sensor architecture for improved sensitivity
- Support for different C- and CS-mount lenses
- Integrated back-focus adjustment ring and tripod mount
If you want to use a camera in your Raspberry Pi based projects, the highest quality camera which is available right now is the Raspberry Pi Camera Module V2.
However, Raspberry Pi just released their latest version of the camera module with an impressive 12.3-megapixel high-resolution camera compared to the 8-megapixel camera on the Camera Module V2 and we are very excited to bring it to you.
This camera has a higher sensitivity than the existing Camera Module v2 with a pixel size of 1.55μm × 1.55μm which is double the pixel area of IMX219 found on the Camera Module V2 and this can result in improved low-light performance.
The Raspberry Pi High-Quality Camera is designed to accept CS-mount lenses, and, with the supplied adapter, it can support C-mount lenses as well.
If you are looking for lenses for this camera, please check the 6 mm wide-angle CS-mount lens and the 16 mm telephoto C-mount lens that are compatible with this camera.
The High Quality camera provides an alternative to the Camera Module v2 for industrial and consumer applications, including security cameras, which require the highest levels of visual fidelity and/or integration with specialized optics.
