8MP Sony IMX219 Camera for Raspberry Pi

Published by Lee Jackson on

Introduction

ArduCAM team just released a 8MP Raspberry Pi compatible camera based on the same Sony IMX219 image sensor. It’s capable of 3280 x 2464 pixel static images, and also supports 1080p30, 720p60 and 640x480p90 video. It attaches to Pi by the dedicated standard CSi interface.

It is the supplementary for Raspberry Pi offical camera in order to fulfill the demands for different lens mount, field of view (FOV) and depth of the field (DOF) as well as the motorized IR cut filter for both daylight and night vision. Contact us for further customization.

Hi,
I’m so glad to find this great camera. But i didn’t find the order webset on http://www.uctronics.com. I wonder where i can buy some of these great products. Thanks!

Great article, exactly what I needed.

Experimenting with the Raspberry Pi V2.1 camera, I’ve found that there’s a lens shading correction built into the driver blob for the Raspberry Pi’s ISP. This is to correct for the standard lens. When using a ‘real’ lens, this correction severely affects the linearity of the colour across the image (both horizontal and vertically). Have you overcome this in your product?
