Turning your Raspberry Pi into a DSLR-like camera.
Successfully funded, thank you!
We set the bar, and then we raised it ourselves.
Just like these flagship phones, your Raspberry Pi now has an ultra high-res camera too. And just like them, your Pi can take still images at a breathtaking resolution (9152 x 6944) as well! Pi Hawk-eye is ready to make millions proud.
Power to all Raspberry Pi users.
This time, we are not just revolutionizing the hardware side, we want this camera to be the “extra sauce” that sets Raspberry Pi apart and puts the platform light years ahead of its game, we want this to be the tipping point of sophisticated embedded vision/camera systems.
What’s better than fixed/manual-focus? Autofocus.
And What’s better than autofocus? DSLR-like focus control.
Here’s what it means: You can now open a preview window on a Raspberry Pi, zoom in for a super close-up view, move up/down/left/right (ePTZ) to pick anything, set/adjust the focus, and then take a photo.
Now imagine what you can do with a feature like this.
Apart from the quality being ultra-high, everything else stays the same.
You can still use your V1/V2 enclosures/mounts, still use the latest camera software (libcamera), and still have the same camera controls, all on top of better tuning.
Let’s take camera-multiplexing to the extreme.
Whether you want to take full-res 64MP images and switch between cameras, capture a scene with four cameras in a combined view, or do depth mapping where all 4 cameras need to work in accurate synchronization, our newly designed quad-camera system will make it a reality.
We make Pi cameras like no other.
You get the best single-camera coverage with our Pan-Tilt Platform, you get to position the camera far away with our camera extension solutions, and you even get to control a mixed set of pl cameras with our multiplexer HAT.
What else? We also offer various lens mounts, NoIR, auto IR-cut filter, flexible form-factors, waterproofing, global shutter, ultra low-power, and countless other features. Our innovation has no limits.
Let’s celebrate Raspberry Pi’s 10th birthday together, let’s give your project/application a well-deserved upgrade, let’s have another camera priced for “less than a dollar per megapixel”.
Let’s also not forget why Raspberry Pi was made in the first place: to eliminate barriers and to make technology affordable for all.
Interface with it any way you want.
Connect the camera to your Raspberry Pi, and control it with your PC, your mac, or better yet, with your smartphone.

For full resolution (64MP), this camera can work on Pi 4B, CM4, and future models. For superpixel resolution (16MP) or lower, it can work on most of the Pi models.
No, it is build-in you can not remove the IR-CUT filter.
If production goes as expected, all orders will be shipped by the end of May.
No, we have no plans for a NoIR version, you can use the Arducam 16MP-NoIR instead.
No, there will no other versions.
If you want different lens mount, pls contact our customization service.
1/1.7″ diagonal image size, back-size illuminated and stacked CMOS image sensor.
0.8μm pixel size, support 2×2 binning to 1.6μm Super Pixel.
Due to the limitation of Raspberry pi, it only supports [email protected] or lower (720p60 and 640 × 480p60/90).
Yes, it supports up to 10x digital zoom.
8cm ~ infinite.
84 diagonal degrees.
Yes. It has the same board design and can work with nearly all camera enclosures/mounts that work with V1 or V2. (except for the Pi 0 case)
This camera is exclusively made for Raspberry Pi, but support for Nvidia Jetson Nano/Xavier NX boards will be added in the future.
Other platforms might be compatible, but you need to develop the camera driver and ISP tuning by yourself.
300mm FPC cables still work. If you want the cable to be longer, use it with our CSI-to-HDMI adapter or cable extension kit.
Yes, you can use our quad-camera HAT kit.
It’s a rolling shutter camera.
You sure can and it’s super easy.
Failed to allocate buffers from 64MP camera on Raspberry Pi comes due to the mechanism of Linux handles CMA memory allocations rather than the camera or driver issues. Check more details from Raspberry Pi engineer following: https://forums.raspberrypi.com/viewtopic.php?t=339182
