IMX298 16MP Color Rolling Shutter Camera for Raspberry Pi


Arducam IMX298 camera breakout incorporates SONY 1/2.8−inch CMOS which adopts Exmor-R technology to achieve high-speed image capturing with high sensitivity and low noise performance. “RGBW coding” color filter is employed, and RGB primary color mosaic is reproduced on the chip. High sensitivity, low dark current, and smear-free features are achieved. It equips an electronic shutter with variable integration time.

Arducam developed a special camera driver for Raspberry Pi, which lets you can capture 16MP still image and 1080p video on your existing Pi board.
