A camera module add-on board version 2 that features a HD 8 megapixel Sony IMX219 image sensor that is custom designed for use with the Raspberry Pi. The NOIR (no infrared) module omits the infrared filter from the lens, increasing sensitivity to the infrared band for IR and low light photography. A fixed focus lens and sensitive sensor gives the capability of taking still images of 3280 x 2464 pixels as well as capturing HD videos of 1080p30, 720p60 and 640x480p60/90.
The module connects to the Pi using the dedicated Camera Serial Interface (CSI) with attachment via a short ribbon cable from a socket on the upper surface of the camera module. The small size and light weight of this module make it perfect for mobile applications and for IR photography, low light photography, monitoring plant growth, CCTV security camera, etc.
