It is the first of its kind on the market and is ideal for professional and consumer applications that require the highest level of visual fidelity and integration of special optics.
The Pi Camera can capture still images and video footage. It is compatible with Raspberry Pi boards of all models from the Raspberry Pi 1 Model B upwards and can be used as a desktop camera. The Raspberry Pi High Quality Camera is suitable for a wide range of professional applications, including machine vision, robotics, industrial and agricultural applications. It is also ideal for home and professional security systems used in low light conditions. The camera can be programmed to support data capture for face and license plate recognition and parking lot surveillance.
Professional developers will find that the new camera, in combination with interchangeable lenses, is easy to integrate into surveillance and quality control systems, while educators, makers and consumers will enjoy the camera's performance and functionality, opening new horizons for Raspberry Pi projects. The Ultra-Definition camera extracts more information from the lens to deliver richer, higher quality images that could not be achieved with the existing Raspberry Pi Camera Module v2.
It is now available for order from Farnell.
