Raspberry Pi High Quality Camera – M12 Lens Mount

Product ID: 5661


The Raspberry Pi High Quality Camera with M12 Lens Mount offers 12.3-megapixel resolution and impressive low light performance in a compact form factor.

The camera is designed to work with interchangeable M12-mount lenses (not supplied) and is suitable for integrating into industrial and consumer applications where the highest levels of visual fidelity are required. 

Please note the M12 Lens is NOT included and must be purchased separately. This camera does not work with the 16mm Telephoto Lens or 3MP Wide-Angle Lens as they are not the right M12 type!

If you want a ready-to-go camera that does not require a separate lens, check out this wide-angle Camera 3. If you want a camera that supports C or CS lenses, check out the High Quality HQ Camera with C Mount here.

The Raspberry Pi High Quality Camera is compatible with all models of Raspberry Pi. Comes with a 200mm long flexible cable for connecting to a A or B type Raspberry Pi computer, if it's too short/long we have a range of Raspberry Pi Camera Cables in various lengths, you can use here.

To use with a Pi Zero, you will need an adapter cable, which we stock here!
