This multi-camera adapter board is designed for Raspberry pi ZERO and allows you connect two 5MP or 8MP or 12MP cameras to Pi Zero. Only one of the two cameras can be activated at a time, and they are working in alternate ways. We build a simple software that can run two cameras and make it looks like working at the same time. But the drawback is the frame rate, and resolution will be fairly low, which may be mainly useful for surveillance.
Please note that the Raspberry Pi multi-camera adapter board is a nascent product that may have some stability issues and limitations because of the cable’s signal integrity and RPi’s closed source video core libraries, so your project may get some risks. This version supports the 8MP Pi camera board. And it also can be used for other Raspberry Pi boards with minor software modifications.

⚠️ Raspberry Pi Touch Display (DSI interface) Compatibility Issues
When you use a DSI display together with this adapter, you will encounter the issue of I2C conflicts. We recommend you use HDMI displays or run headless when using this adapter.
⚠️ Camera Module Compatibility
The Arducam Multi-camera adapters ONLY support 3 kinds of camera modules by default:
- 5MP OV5647 (V1.3)
- 8MP IMX219 (V2.1)
- 12MP IMX477 (HQ)
- 12MP IMX708(Raspberry Pi Camera Module 3)
ALL other MIPI camera modules intended to be used with Arducam multi-camera adapters needs extra customization. Extra fees may occur.
⚠️ Resolution and Framerate Compatibility
If you need the cameras to run at a certain resolution or framerates, please request customization. Extra fees may occur.
