Raspberry Pi recently announced their new 8-megapixel camera board. Like all of Raspberry Pi’s products, this does not disappoint.
The original 5-pixel camera board used a now-unavailable sensor. The new 8-megapixel sensors are based on the Sony IMX219 sensor, and cost the same as the 5-pixel sensor did: just $25! Both visible-light and infrared cameras are available.
For more information on the infrared (left) and the visible light (right) camera boards, check out Raspberry Pi’s blog post.
