OV7251 0.3MP Global Shutter Camera for Raspberry Pi

Introduction

The Arducam OV7251 MIPI camera module incorporates Omnivision 1/7.5-inch 0.3 Mp CMOS digital image sensor which is capable of operating at up to 100fps in VGA (640×480) resolution. The OV7251’s high frame rates make it an ideal solution for low-latency machine vision applications.

The global shutter technology allows to reduce or eliminate unwanted image artifacts, which occur with traditional rolling shutter image sensors as a result of motion during image capture. The sensor’s global shutter and excellent low-light sensitivity allow it to be used for any application that needs gesture detection, head/eye tracking, and depth and motion detection.
