  • Seamless Integration: Native to Raspberry Pi and doesn't require any additional drivers (Debian version: 11 'bullseye')
  • Easy to Use: Just enable the overlay to make it work
  • Global Shutter: Shoot high-speed moving objects in crisp, sharp images
  • IR Sensitivity: NoIR, sensitive to IR light.

The Arducam OV9281 monochrome global shutter camera module is designed specifically for Raspberry Pi boards. With a resolution of 1280×800, this camera module (Rev.B) can be effortlessly connected to the RPi's CSI-2 camera interface without needing any extra hardware. It is fully compatible with the official V4L2 camera driver, allowing easy setup by simply enabling the overlay. Thanks to its global shutter and impressive low-light sensitivity, this camera module is well-suited for a wide range of applications, including gesture detection, head and eye tracking, as well as depth and motion detection.

Equipped with NoIR (No Infrared) technology, this embedded camera module stands out with its remarkable ability to capture high-quality images in low-light environments. Unlike standard cameras, this NoIR camera can detect both visible and infrared light, making it an ideal choice for situations with limited lighting. By removing the infrared filter, this camera module excels in applications such as nighttime surveillance and astrophotography, providing innovative solutions to overcome the limitations of traditional cameras.
