Raspberry Pi since its inception in 2012, itself already after several hardware upgrades. But the 5-megapixel camera module is always maintained.
Today, the Raspberry Pi finally brought the long awaited update. Sony produced the IMX219 800-megapixel camera OmniVision's OV5647 camera substituted.
And OmniVision's OV5647, like, IMX219 800-megapixel camera is also visible and infrared ( IR night version must match the infrared-sensitive lamp ) versions.
Its size is 25mm x23mmx9 mm, and weighs only 3 grams.
And many smart phone / tablet makers, Raspberry Pi Foundation chose Sony's technology to drive new image visible and infrared cameras. IMX219 has a fixed focus sensor can capture 3280x2464 resolution still pictures and 30FPS 1080P video. Choose This photosensitive element is because it has excellent image quality, color fidelity and low-light performance, image former Broadcom engineers Naush Patuck debugger also ensures Videocore IV GPU good with it and raspberries School.
The Raspberry Pi Camera Module v2 is a high quality 8 megapixel Sony IMX219 image sensor custom designed add-on board for Raspberry Pi, featuring a fixed focus lens. It's capable of 3280 x 2464 pixel static images, and also supports 1080p30, 720p60 and 640x480p60/90 video. It attaches to Pi by way of one of the small sockets on the board upper surface and uses the dedicated CSI interface, designed especially for interfacing to cameras. The board itself is tiny, at around 25mm x 23mm x 9mm. It also weighs just over 3g, making it perfect for mobile or other applications where size and weight are important. It connects to Raspberry Pi by way of a short ribbon cable.
