Arducam OV9281 MIPI 1MP Monochrome Global Shutter Camera Module for Raspberry Pi 4/3B+/3

  • Support all Raspberry Pi Models: Same interface, all-model support. Directly plugged into Raspberry Pi’s native high-speed MIPI CSI-2 port. Support Raspberry Pi 4, Pi 3/3B+/3A+, CM3/3+, Pi Zero and more. NOTE: Raspberry Pi motherboard is not included in the package.
  • Global Shutter Coming to Raspberry Pi Camera: Shoot high-speed moving objects in crisp sharp images. Avoid the rolling artifacts to get a much more accurate complete picture than the rolling shutter Pi cameras
  • Higher Frame Rates: Capture video at 1280×800/60fps resolutions.
  • Application: this 1MP monochrome global shutter MIPI camera module has excellent low-light sensitivity, which makes it ideal for any application that needs gesture detection, head, and eye tracking, and depth and motion detection.
  • Disclaimer: Arducam MIPI cameras are for advanced users with a certain degree of development background. The RPI camera driver is not V4L2 compliance, and it can’t work with native Raspberry Pi camera drivers, commands, and software. You have to use Arducam SDK and examples.

Description

Overview

The Arducam monochrome (B&W) global shutter 1280×800 resolution OV9281 MIPI camera module is mainly designed for Raspberry Pi boards, and it can be connected directly to RPi’s CSI-2 camera interface without additional hardware. This camera is based on 1/4-inch Omnivision OV9281 image sensor which adopts OmniPixel3-GS™ technology to provide full-frame, sub-sampled, and windowed 8/10-bit MIPI images, and capable of operating at up to 60fps in full resolution at 1lane MIPI bus with complete user control over image quality.

The sensor’s global shutter and excellent low-light sensitivity allow it to be used for any application that needs gesture detection, head and eye tracking, and depth and motion detection.

Application:

  • Cellular phones
  • Toys
  • Tablets
  • Machine vision
  • ARM/FPGA/DSP based platforms
