Does the standard cable also plug into the Pi Zero/Zero W? Or are those not compatible?
Considering the Mini Camera which states it's only compatible with the plug on the Pi Zero, it made me wonder if the normal-sized camera modules are compatible with the Pi Zero W, as I have one of these.
  • It is compatible, but requires the samller cable, so you will need the Raspberry Pi Zero Camera cable if you want to use this camera with the Raspberry Pi Zero

Version of camera
Are you stocking the latest revision where the focus is more like the original camera - i.e. not set to 2m?
  • This is the Camera Module V2.1

Focus Issues
I've read that many cameras that supplied are out of focus to infinity. Do your stock of cameras have this issue resolved by the foundation and have the camera set to infinity focus? Thanks
  • All official cameras come with a plastic jig to adjust the focus of the camera.

Lens connector type??
Is there a standard type of connector that we need to connect the lens and if so. What is it called?

  • Which lens are you referring to? The camera lens/sensor is "fixed" to the board. You can purchase add on lenses (for example this fisheye lens) but you would need a stand or box to hold the lens with the camera module.

The Raspberry Pi Camera Module V2 is the new and improved official camera board from the Raspberry Pi Foundation! Custom designed and manufactured by the Raspberry Pi Foundation in the UK, the Raspberry Pi Camera Board V2 features an ultra-high quality 8 megapixel Sony IMX219 image sensor (up from 5MP on the V1 camera board), and a fixed focus camera lens. The V2 camera module is capable of 3280 x 2464 pixel static images, and also supports 1080p30, 720p60 and 640x480p90 video.

The module attaches 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 BCM2835 processor. A 150mm CSI cable is included with every camera.

The board itself is tiny, at around 25mm x 23mm x 9mm, and weighs just over 3g, making it perfect for mobile or other applications where size and weight are important. 

The Raspberry Pi Camera Board V2 Features:

  • Fixed focus lens on-board
  • 150mm CSI camera cable included
  • 8 megapixel native resolution sensor-capable of 3280 x 2464 pixel static images
  • Supports 1080p30, 720p60 and 640x480p90 video
  • Size 25mm x 23mm x 9mm
  • Weight just over 3g
  • Connects to the Raspberry Pi board via a short ribbon cable (supplied)
  • Camera v2 is supported in the latest version of Raspbian, Raspberry Pi's preferred operating system
