An improved camera for use with Raspberry Pi computers, featuring a 12-megapixel Sony IMX708 sensor, HDR support and powered phase-detect autofocus.

Camera Module 3 is the successor to the popular Raspberry Pi Camera v2, which launched in April 2016. Built around a 12-megapixel Sony IMX708 image sensor module, Camera Module 3 offers the following exciting improvements over its predecessor:

  • Improved low-light sensitivity
  • High dynamic range (HDR) support
  • Powered phase-detect autofocus (PDAF)

It can be used to take full HD video as well as still photographs, and features an HDR mode up to 3 megapixels. Its operation is fully supported by the libcamera library, including Camera Module 3’s rapid autofocus feature: this makes it easy for beginners to use, while offering plenty for advanced users.

Camera Module 3 is available with either a standard (75°) or wide-angle (120°) lens and in visible-light-only and infrared-sensitive (NoIR) variants (coming soon).

Quality of (still) life

Camera Module 3 comes with an improved 12MP IMX708 Quad Bayer sensor and features a High Dynamic Range mode, making it the highest quality Camera Module we’ve made so far.

Focus on the good

Camera Module 3 features ultra-fast auto focus as standard. A rich library of software commands means you can have total control over what you focus on and how you do it.

Look from a different perspective

Need a wider field of view than the standard 75 degrees? Camera Module 3 Wide features an ultra-wide 120 degree angle of view, meaning your Raspberry Pi can see more of the world.

See things differently

Both the standard and wide cameras come with the option of having no IR filter, turning the Camera Module 3 into a night-vision camera when used with infrared lighting.


Not just for stills

Camera Module 3 can record full HD video at 50fps, with higher frame rates available at lower resolutions. Featuring an HDR mode and autofocus, it not only provides great stills quality, but is also a fantastic tool for video recording and streaming.

Documentation Cable Compatibility

All models of Raspberry Pi Zero require a Raspberry Pi Zero camera cable to connect to the Raspberry Pi Camera Module; the standard cable supplied with the camera is not compatible with the smaller Raspberry Pi Zero camera connector. Suitable cables are available at low cost from many Raspberry Pi Approved Resellers, and are supplied with the Raspberry Pi Zero Case.


Raspberry Pi Camera Module 3 has undergone extensive compliance testing and meets a number of regional and international standards.
