Raspberry Pi Camera Module 3 is here 📸

Today Raspberry Pi released the Camera Module 3. It is based on the Sony IMX708 image sensor.

That means that it comes with an impressive resolution of 12 megapixels.

On top of that it has improved low-light sensitivity, high dynamic range (HDR) support and powered autofocus. So your images will be crispier and have a better contrast, especially in low-light scenarios.


Just like it’s predecessors, the Camera Module 3 is available in visible-light-only and infrared-sensitive (NoIR) variants. Also there is a standard version with a 76° lens and a wide-angle version with a 120° lens.

The Camera Module 2 will be designated as “not recommended for new designs”.

Sounds great, where can I get it?

The 76° and 120° variants for visible light only are available at our store right now!

It is even cheaper than the standard price for the Camera Module 2 (which we currently have on sale).

The NoIR variants are on their way and will be added soon.
