The official camera modules have fixed-focus lenses, which are either glued or need manual adjustment. However, Arducam thinks that your focus matters and has released this motorized focus camera for Raspberry Pi. This Arducam camera module is designed for you to control the focus on a camera for Raspberry Pi via software, so you can see closer and see where you want to see.

  1. Rich Barth

    Wished I had found this earlier.

    Something I have found important in object recognition is clarity of the object in the picture. Auto-focus really helps that. I highly recommend this camera if you are learning how to program for A.I..

    Nice Product

    I used this camera for one of my research and learning projects. As described the camera works perfect, reasonably easy to assemble and operate with a raspberry. The very nature of the product demands the user to be a bit technical. The autofocus script example from the codebase works fine without issues for me. I would recommend it for anyone who is looking for a good quality camera.
    Two opportunity areas for the manufacturer i would quote
    1. The camera case assembly is a bit tricky. Maybe a future version will improve the design.
    2. The fact that it needs technical knowledge for operation. Example : python knowledge. I dont think this is a big minus – just a minor callout.

    Great camera for the money

    Overall the camera waa great and perfect for my simpler, python based project. The camera is easy to set up. Simply plug the camera cable into the raspberry pi. The camera interfaces quickly and easily with the picamera library and picture has great resolution even under lower light conditions. The auto focus works well as advertised.
