The Raspberry Pi Camera Module is a 5 megapixel custom designed add-on for Raspberry Pi, featuring a fixed focus lens. It's capable of 2592 x 1944 pixel static images, and also supports 1080p30, 720p60 and 640x480p60/90 video. It attaches to Pi by way of one of the small sockets on the board upper surface and uses the dedicated CSi interface, designed especially for interfacing to cameras. 5 megapixel native resolution sensor-capable of 2592 x 1944 pixel static images Supports 1080p30, 720p60 and 640x480p60/90 video Camera is supported in the latest version of Raspbian, Raspberry Pi's preferred operating system The board itself is tiny, at around 25mm x 20mm x 9mm. It also weighs just over 3g, making it perfect for mobile or other applications where size and weight are important. It connects to Raspberry Pi by way of a short ribbon cable. The sensor itself has a native resolution of 5 megapixel, and has a fixed focus lens on-board. In terms of still images, the camera is capable of 2592 x 1944 pixel static images, and also supports 1080p30, 720p60 and 640x480p60/90 video.

However, I'm not using it anymore. I set up OctoPrint for my 3D printer and wanted to use the timelapse feature. This camera works and image quality is ok, but there are mounting issues that you have to solve and the ok quality is just that-- only ok. With only a little bit more configuration, I was able to set up OctoPrint with a Logitech c900 series USB webcam. I was really surprised at just how easy it was to set up-- it seems that many USB cameras are basically at the plug-and-play level of compatibility with Raspbian. I just needed to point OctoPrint's streaming service to the correct device, and it worked.
Benefits of using a USB camera instead of this one:
- Image quality can be much better (especially in low light),
- Mounting is easier,
- It's in a more rugged/sealed enclosure, and
- Because USB cameras usually come with a cable attached, your Pi can be several feet away from the camera. In my case, having the camera mounted to the print bed and placing the Pi a few feet away is a much nicer solution than I could have achieved with the official RPi Camera.
Benefits of using THIS camera instead of USB:
- If you want a camera and Pi integrated into the same case, this camera is probably the best (only) choice
- Power consumption is probably lower. (USB cameras might need to be connected to the Pi through a powered hub)
- It is likely to be cheaper, depending on the USB camera that you're considering
- In my experience, this camera was SLIGHTLY easier to set up (although USB camera setup was not really difficult at all)
Notice at this spot in the video
The left side of the cable is blue and the right side has the silver pins. My cable looks like this:
So it appears it's the wrong cable. The first picture is the cable I got. The second is the cable that is required.
They removed the links to the videos. If your cable has the blue tab on the same side on both ends you have the wrong cable. But you can get replacement cables of different sizes from Adafruit.com. I haven't checked if Amazon has them.
Will record at 720P with a great picture for long as you want.
1080P records with a great picture but I could only record at 1080P for about 20 seconds without making the Raspberry PI unresponsive.
BACKGROUND: I only came to the Raspberry Pi world a few months ago as of this writing, and quite by accident. Originally, I bought just a Raspberry Pi to inspire my pre-teen son, but quickly got hooked myself. Adding this camera to a Raspberry Pi made sense as it opens up a ton of creative opportunities and, for me specifically, helped me replace WiFi home surveillance cameras which no longer worked reliably following a company buy-out.
WHAT I LIKE:
- Inexpensive! Add a 5MB camera for under thirty bucks? Yes, please!
- Easy to install! Pop up a locking tab on the Raspberry Pi, insert the ribbon, lock the tab into place and, done!
- Easy to immediately use! I use the Picamera library and have had a lot of success using that to get photos
- Add a wide-angle lens! Sold separately, I bought a somewhat clunky wide-angle clip-on lens and greatly improved the utility of this camera
- Great quality photos if you're taking outside shots in bright light; otherwise, they're okay (but great for the money spent)
- Trouble-free. I've bought three of these cameras for three Pi's and all are working reliably, even outdoors under my eaves
WHAT COULD BE BETTER:
- The camera comes with only one, default ribbon cable which for me is just barely long enough. I'd prefer having ordering options where the customer could choose how long of a cable to go along with the camera board. (Yes, you can buy ribbon cables separately, but that's at a greater cost and the shorter ribbon needlessly becomes a throw-away attachment).
CONCLUSION: Great item at an even greater value proposition. Highly recommended!
