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.

Wide angle (110°) – MLX90640 Thermal Camera Breakout (110 wide thermal camera)
Description:

How to use Picamera with Raspberry Pi OS Bullseye: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E7KPSc_Xr24&list=WL&index=2

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.

It's also compatible with our fancy new Breakout Garden, where using breakouts is as easy just popping it into one of the six slots and starting to grow your project, create, and code.

Features
  • Melexis MLX90640 far-infrared sensor array (datasheet)
  • 32x24 pixels
  • Field of view: 55°x35° or 110°x75°
  • Up to 64FPS
  • -40 to 300°C detection with approximately 1°C accuracy
  • I2C interface (address 0x33)
  • 3.3V or 5V compatible
  • Reverse polarity protection
  • Compatible with all models of Raspberry Pi, and with certain Arduino models
Kit includes
  • MLX90640 breakout
  • 1x5 male header
  • 1x5 female right-angle header

We've designed this breakout board so that you can solder on the piece of right-angle female header and pop it straight onto the bottom left 5 pins on your Raspberry Pi's GPIO header (pins 1, 3, 5, 7, 9).

Software

We've written software in C that you can use to generate images and video from the MLX90640 cameras.

SparkFun also provide an example Arduino/Processing sketch for the MLX90640.

Our software does not support Raspbian Wheezy.

ArduCam 16MP IMX519 Autofocus Camera Module for RPi and Jetson (Arducam 16MP)
Description

Arducam High-Resolutions Autofocus camera is an exclusive camera board that takes what Raspberry Pi V1, V2, and HQ have to offer, and excels in every single aspect.

It takes zero compromises in specs. With a resolution of 16 megapixels (compared to 8MP and 12MP), an autofocus lens, a V2-like form factor, and boatloads of improvements, the camera provides a better choice for a whole world of industrial/consumer/etc. applications, it’s compatible with any existing Pi models, works with the latest software from the foundation, and leverages the same tuning algorithms used in the official camera modules.



Check out this  review by Jeff Geerling and his video https://youtu.be/j2S8sZoH36Y

16MP Camera Module for All Pis.

2 times higher resolution than the v2 camera, 40% higher than the HQ camera. Based on the 16MP Sony IMX519 sensor, this new camera module gives all Raspberry Pi hackers every bit of power they need to build future-proof projects.



V1/V2 Size, with Autofocus.

The community has been craving autofocus in Pi cameras, so Arducam took the advice. This camera has the classic V1/V2 form-factor so you can add hassle-free upgrades to your existing projects, or build new applications with the best flexibility on cameras.



Crisper Images/Videos Than The HQ Camera.

It’s not just the resolution bump, the “quality” is way higher than the HQ Camera too. With the same camera tuning algorithms from the foundation, this module beats the Raspberry Pi HQ camera in every aspect. (sharpness/saturation/exposure/etc.)



Safety instructions:

  • Before connecting, you should always power the Raspberry Pi off and remove the power supply first.
  • Make sure the cable on the camera board is locked in place.
  • Make sure the cable is correctly inserted in the Raspberry Pi board’s MIPI CSI-2 connector.
  • Avoid high temperatures.
  • Avoid water, moisture, or conductive surfaces while in operation.
  • Avoid folding, or straining the flex cable.
  • Avoid cross-threading with tripods.
  • Gently push/pull the connector to avoid damaging the printed circuit board.
  • Avoid moving or handling the printed circuit board excessively while it’s in operation.
  • Handle by the edges to avoid damages from electrostatic discharge.
  • Where the camera board is stored should be cool and as dry as possible.
  • Sudden temperature/humidity changes can cause dampness in the lens and affect the image/video quality.
