For a long time, when people talk about the Raspberry Pi Camera, they always think of the Raspberry Pi Camera v1-OV5647 or the Raspberry Pi camera v2-IMX219. With the release of the new generation of HD Raspberry Pi camera-IMX477, users have more selection. Now, let me introduce you to some great raspberry pi cameras.
You’ll find infrared cameras that can be used in dark environments, and the HD camera that can be magnified 300x with an external lens! You’ll see that the Raspberry Pie camera can be so wonderful.
Raspberry Pi High Quality Camera – IMX477
With the 12.3 megapixel Sony IMX477 sensor and 7.9mm diagonal image size, the new Raspberry Pi High Quality Camera has excellent performance. The new IMX477 camera also features adjustable back focus and supports for C- and CS-mount lenses. Well, C- and CS-mount lenses mean infinite possibilities!
You can add any C- or CS-mount lens to meet your needs. You can find all sorts of lenses compatible with the Raspberry Pi HQ Camera at Seeed.

Raspberry Pi Camera Module V2
With the 8 megapixel Sony IMX219 image sensor, the Raspberry Pi Camera Module V2 can output 3280×2464 pixel images and up to 1080p30 video. Small and portable, but powerful.
For most of the Raspberry Pi daily applications, it will be your best bet.
Raspberry Pi Camera Module V1
The Raspberry Pi Camera Module V1 is based on OmniVision OV5647 camera sensor, which has 5 Megapixels resolution.
Raspberry Pi PiNoir Camera Module V2
Raspberry Pi PiNoir Camera Module V2 is based on the Sony IMX219PQ CMOS image sensor. It has virtually identical parametric performance to the Raspberry Pi Camera Module V2, and it supports infrared lighting! Which means you can use this camera in the dark.
Along with the official camera, we also offer third-party compatible cameras with a variety of features.
Raspberry Pi Infrared Camera Module
Raspberry Pi Infrared Camera Module is a low-cost infrared camera designed for Raspberry Pi. It is based on the 5-megapixel OV5647 sensor.
Raspberry Pi Wide Angle Camera Module
If you need to use Raspberry Pie for wide-angle applications, such as taking landscape photos, video surveillance, then this camera would be a great choice. This camera is based on the 5-megapixel OV5647 sensor and has a 160-degree FOV( field of view). While the normal raspberry pi cameras are typically 72 degrees.
IMX219-77 Replacement Camera Module
This camera is based on the Sony IMX219 camera sensor. Which means it could be a replacement of the Raspberry Pi Camera Module V2.
Personally, I love this camera very much. Its small size makes it ideal for applications where space is at a premium. In addition, it’s very cost-effective, at only $9.9!
IMX219-160 Replacement Camera Module
As the name indicates, this camera is a replacement for the Raspberry Pi Camera Module V2. The same as the Raspberry Pi Camera Module V2, it uses the Sony IMX219 sensor, and this camera support 160° FOV( field of view )! All of these impressive features for only $12.90.
