Arducam MT9P031 camera breakout incorporates ON Semiconductor 1/2.5−inch CMOS active−pixel digital imaging sensor MT9P031 with an active pixel array of 2592H x 1944V including border pixels. It can support 5 megapixel (2592H x 1944V) digital still images and a 480p (640H x 480V) digital video mode. It incorporates sophisticated on-chip camera functions such as windowing, mirroring, column and row skip modes, and snapshot mode.

Please note that it is the RAW sensor which doesn’t include ISP (Image Signal Processing) on the image sensor chip, so it only supports manual exposure, manual white balance, manual gain settings.
