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.

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.
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.
If you want to mount this camera on a tripod, we offer two different tripods for this camera: a mini tripod and a tripod with adjustable height.
You can refer to the table below to have an in-depth comparison between the Raspberry Pi Camera Modules.
