  • High quality: Intergate an 8 megapixel Sony IMX219 image sensor
  • High resolution: Capable of 3280 x 2464 pixel static images
  • Great performance: Capture video at 1080p30, 720p60 and 640x480p90
  • Wide compatibility: Compatible with most of SBCs or Dev boards that have standard CSI


Raspberry Pi Camera Module V2 is a new official camera board released by Raspberry Pi Foundation. It carries an 8 megapixel Sony IMX219 image sensor which has a great performance in catching the high resolution of images and videos. The image sensor can output up to 3280x2464 pixel static images ,1080p30, 720p60 and 640x480p90 video.

For the interface that connects the board, Raspberry Pi Camera has the standard CSI(Camera Serial Interface) which can be compatible with most of SBCs or Dev boards like Raspberry Pi 4, NVIDIA Jetson Nano and Raspberry Pi Zero, etc. But you need a Camera Cable for Raspberry Pi Zero to adapt the Pi Zero to this camera. As a matter of fact, the Raspberry Pi Camera has wide compatibility.

  1. Product Quality
    If you need a surveillance camera this is great.
    I chose this camera for my 3d printer enclosure. Using a USB webcam directly loads all video being recorded through the CPU. For my needs this Raspberry Pi camera was the better choice even though it was 4x the price of a cheap USB webcam
  2. Product Quality
    Good quality output
    Raspberry Pi Camera Module V2 is immediately compatible with the Raspberry Pi natively, and does give a decent video image output (better than the basic MK1). I like it very much.
  3. Product Quality
    Good for watching 3D printer
    We use this camera to monitor a 3D printer; It works great. We're used to having to at least somewhat prod config files, search for compatible drivers, that sort of thing. But this went so smoothly.
  4. Product Quality
    A great hobby camera with Consistent picture quality
    Excellent for its purpose. This camera is exactly as described. Very small but very good quality. It's a quality 1080 image/video . Good Buy.
  5. Product Quality
    More natural colors than the early camera module V1.3
    With Raspberry Pi Camera Module V2, I was able to shoot with natural colors with all auto settings. Of course, the number of pixels has increased from 5 million pixels to 8 million pixels compared to the previous version, so it seems that the detail of the image is also improved. Since it is small and lightweight, it can be attached to any shooting equipment with a little ingenuity.
