Cameras

Just a quick heads up to remind you that the camera modules on the Raspberry Camera board ARE STATIC SENSITIVE. This means you should earth yourself before handling the module (radiator, PC case etc). Failure to do so can result in a dead camera module.

Raspberry Pi High Quality camera board (HQ camera)
Overview

The Raspberry Pi High Quality Camera is the latest camera accessory from Raspberry Pi. It offers higher resolution (12 megapixels, compared to 8 megapixels), and sensitivity (approximately 50% greater area per pixel for improved low-light performance) than the existing Camera Module v2, and
is designed to work with interchangeable lenses in both C- and CS-mount form factors. Other lens form factors can be accommodated using third-party lens adapters.

The High Quality Camera provides an alternative to the Camera Module v2 for industrial and consumer applications, including security cameras, which require the highest levels of visual fidelity and/or integration with specialist optics. It is compatible with all models of Raspberry Pi computer from Raspberry Pi 1 Model B onwards, using the latest software release from www.raspberrypi.org.(1)

The package comprises a circuit board carrying a Sony IMX477 sensor, an FPC cable for connection to a Raspberry Pi computer, a milled aluminium lens mount with integrated tripod mount and focus adjustment ring, and a C- to CS-mount adapter.

(1) Excluding early Raspberry Pi Zero models, which lack the necessary FPC connector. Later Raspberry Pi Zero models require an adapter FPC, sold separately.

SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
To avoid malfunction or damage to this product, please observe the following:
• Before connecting the device, shut down your Raspberry Pi computer and disconnect it from
external power.
• If the cable becomes detached, pull the locking mechanism forward on the connector, insert the ribbon
cable ensuring the metal contacts face towards the circuit board, then push the locking mechanism back into place.
• This device should be operated in a dry environment at 0–50°C.
• Do not expose it to water or moisture, or place on a conductive surface whilst in operation.
• Do not expose it to excessive heat from any source.
• Care should be taken not to fold or strain the ribbon cable.
• Care should be taken when screwing in parts or fitting a tripod. A cross-thread can cause irreparable damage and void the warranty.
• Take care whilst handling to avoid mechanical or electrical damage to the printed circuit board
and connectors.
• Avoid handling the printed circuit board whilst it is powered and only handle by the edges to minimise the risk of electrostatic discharge damage.
• Store in a cool, dry location.
• Avoid rapid changes of temperature, which can cause moisture build up in the device, affecting
image quality.

Standard (55°) MLX90640 Thermal Camera Breakout (55 Thermal camera std 55)

MLX90640 Thermal Camera Breakout

A sophisticated, hackable, 32x24 pixel thermal camera breakout! Use it to monitor the temperature of your CPU or coffee pot, or to build your own heat-seeking night vision camera. Works with Raspberry Pi or Arduino.

It's perfect for building into projects - industrial, scientific, or just fun - and much more affordable than most thermal cameras. Our breakout makes it easy to use the camera with your Raspberry Pi or Arduino, using I2C and 3-6V supply. And it's available in two different fields of view, 55° (standard) or 110° (wide angle) depending on your preference.

The MLX90640 far-infrared camera is an array of 768 (32x24) thermal sensors that can detect temperatures from -40 to 300°C with approximately 1°C accuracy and up to 64FPS! The applications of this camera are manifold: measure the heat or heat dissipation of devices like CPUs, circuit boards, or electrical appliances; use it to identify thermal inefficiencies in your home; or use it for presence detection to identify bodies in complete darkness.
