Specifications Top

The Raspberry Pi Camera V2 features the same, tiny footprint (25mm x 23mm x 9mm) as the original Pi Camera module, but features an upgraded Sony IMX219 image sensor which has a native resolution of 8 megapixels. The fixed-focus lens can capture 3280 x 2464 pixel images and 1080p30, 720p60 and 640x480p90 video.

The Raspberry Pi Camera V2 connects to the CSi connector of your Raspberry Pi via a 15cm long flexible ribbon cable. It is plug-and-play compatible latest version of the Raspbian operating system making it perfect for time-lapse photography, recording video, motion detection, and security applications.

The Raspberry Pi Camera V2 is available in two configurations; a visible light version (this one) which is made for everyday use, or an IR sensitive version (NoIR V2) which is better suited for low-light environments such as night photography and security.

    First one arrived DOA, still waiting for RMA

    Overall: 1 out of 5

    I live my Pi Noir 2.1 Camera, so I ordered this one. But it arrived DOA and am waiting for MCM to respond to my request for an RMA.

    8MP camera works well if you need close focus

    Overall: 3 out of 5

    New board has f/2.0 lens, prior v1.3 board had f/2.9 lens. That makes it better in low light. Color response may be better on the new board. Both of the new v2.1 camera modules I received had the lens focused at a distance of only 12 inches, so the 8 MP sensor delivers good images for close-ups. BUT distant objects are not as well focused as they should be. The lens is fixed in place with four tiny dots of glue around the edge and I had difficulties trying to re-focus it myself. The focus is not intended to be user-adjustable.
