IMX135 13MP Color Rolling Shutter Camera for Raspberry Pi


Arducam IMX135 MIPI camera module incorporates Sony 1/3−inch 13 Mega-pixel CMOS active pixel type stacked image sensor with a square pixel array. The MIPI camera module supports manual exposure, white balance and focus adjustment, and be connected to the standard Raspberry pi CSI-2 camera port. It also supports other hardware platforms with the MIPI camera interface like Nvidia Jetson TX2.

Arducam developed a special camera driver for Raspberry Pi, which lets you can capture 13MP still image and 1080p video on your existing Pi board.
