    The Raspberry Pi High Quality Camera is the latest camera accessory from Raspberry Pi. It offers higher resolution and sensitivity (approximately 50% greater area per pixel for improved low-light performance) than the existing Camera Module v2.
    The package comprises a circuit board carrying a Sony IMX477 sensor, an FFC (Flexible Flat Cable) 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. This is the first official HQ (High Quality) camera module from Raspberry Pi.
    Here is some info about C-mount and CS-mount from

    "C- and CS-mount lenses are both threaded lens mounts found on most industrial CCD cameras and lenses. The difference between C and CS-mount equipment is the distance between the flange of the lens (the part of the case that butts up against the camera) and the focal plane of the lens (where the CCD sensor must be positioned). This is known as the flange back distance.

    The C-mount lens specification for flange back distance is 17.53 mm, and on CS-mount lenses, it is 12.53 mm. If you have a CS-mount camera and a C-mount lens, you can add a 5mm spacer to obtain the correct focus. If, however, you have a C-mount camera and a CS-mount lens, the correct focus cannot be achieved."

    With the ultra-high quality 12MP(megapixel) SONY IMX477 image sensor as compared to 8MP on Camera module V2. This 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


    The module comes with the standard 15-pin FFC cable (15cm length) for you to connect it to the Raspberry Pi board. This HQ camera module is designed to work with interchangeable lenses in both C- and CS-mount form factors. Other lenses form factors can be accommodated using third-party lens adapters too. However, this HQ camera module DOES NOT come with a lens, but it MUST have a lens to operate, so get it separately or get the complete kits. Anyway, this HQ camera module is compatible with:

    This is with 6mm Wide-Angle Lens (not included) mounted on HQ Camera, please REMOVE the C-CS-mount adapter.

    This video shows the setup HQ camera + 6mm lens and Raspberry Pi 4 Model B. Here are the photo and video files taken with this setup, in Google Drive.


    The video demonstrates the use of HQ camera + 6mm lens with Raspberry Pi Zero W. Here are the photo and video files taken with this setup, in Google Drive.

    Check out the video and explanation by DroneBot Workshop:

    This is with 16mm Telephoto Lens (not included) mounted on HQ camera, the C-CS-mount adapter is NEEDED.

    You can get different lengths of 15-pin Ribbon/FFC cable for better movement of the HQ camera. We have tried up to 1 meter and it works fine:

    As mentioned earlier, this HQ camera module interface to Raspberry Pi by way of a 15-pin Ribbon Cable, to the dedicated 15-pin MIPI Camera Serial Interface (CSI), which was designed especially for interfacing to cameras. The CSI bus is capable of extremely high data rates, and it exclusively carries pixel data to the Raspberry Pi's processor.

    With this HQ camera, you can now capture the high-resolution picture with Raspberry Pi, and with the adjustable lens to get different aperture and focus points.

    This HQ camera module is compatible with:

    Note: This HQ Camera module is NOT compatible with the 1st version of the Raspberry Pi Zero board that does not come with CSI port.
