In order to meet the increasing need of Raspberry Pi compatible camera modules. The ArduCAM team now released series of camera modules both 5MP and 8MP for Raspberry Pi which is fully compatible with official one. They are divided into standard version, optimized optical performance version, miniature size spy camera version, NoIR version, and programmable motorized focus camera version which give user a much clear and sharp image compared to the official Pi camera, even provides the FREX and STROBE signals which can be used for multi-camera synchronize capture with proper camera driver firmware.
The official camera driver only support OV5647 5MP and IMX219 8MP cameras. If you want to use other cameras rather than OV5647/IMX219, you have to use our Arducam USB camera shield which can help you add multiple higher performance cameras to a single Raspberry Pi board.
