The Raspberry Pi High Quality Camera is an upgraded 12 megapixel, high sensitivity camera for Raspberry Pi with aluminium M12 lens mounting hardware.
Note: A M12/S-mount lens is essential but not included! Compatible M12 lenses will be coming soon.
It offers higher resolution (12 megapixels instead of 8 megapixels) and improved low-light performance (approximately 50% greater area per pixel) compared to the existing Camera Module v2. This version is designed to work natively with a variety of M12/S-mount lenses (commonly used in industry) and also includes an integrated tripod mount.
The HQ camera is great for projects where you want to see all the details (such as security cameras), or for ones where you want to use specialist lenses (such as wildlife or sky photography!) It's compatible with all Raspberry Pi computers*.
