      Hi everyone,

      I am looking for someone to recommend a camera for me to use with a Raspberry Pi 4.

      To explain my setup, I run this facebook page https://www.facebook.com/nestboxlive and specialise in live streaming inside nest boxes. As most you have probably found, I’m tired of waiting round for Raspberry Pi to release a new camera module with increased specs so I’m looking for alternatives.

      I have had a look on the Arducam website and found many options including the MIPI range, but I am unsure if it will work with my setup.

      Ideally I’d like to be running 1080p 60fps. At the moment the v2 camera is running in full FOV at a resolution of 1440 x 1080.

      I need a camera that has an IR cut switch as I am using a standard CCTV cut filter at the moment that is triggered via a python script to a motor driver, which is opening and closing the IR filter.

      The camera must also be able to pipe raw h264 video into ffmpeg without re-encoding.

      Would be grateful if anyone could make a recommendation.
