IMX219 – 8.0 MP USB Camera Module:
The IMX219 – 8.0 MP USB Camera Module (B0196) feature the IMX219 color sensor from Sony. Raspberry Pi uses this sensor for their 8.0 MP camera. The sensor has a 1/4.0″ optical format, which combined with the pixel size of 1.12 µm x 1.12 µm, provides the 8.0 MP 3280 x 2464 image. This is a rolling shutter sensor, which captures an entire column (or row) simultaneously. The sensor compiles the image by scanning across (or down).
This camera module does not use the Raspberry Pi camera interface, but uses the USB UVC interface, which means it will work with Windows, Linux, and Apple systems.
Select the NoIR Filter option for IR photography. If you are primarily interested in color photography, select the IR Filter option.
Lens / Mounts:
These USB camera modules are currently sold only with a stock lens.
The key benefit of the standard lens mounts, available with other ArduCam modules, is the simplicity in swapping the lens – fisheye, wide-angle, telephoto, zoom, IR or NoIR filter – all of which are available from DLSCorp. Click on the Camera Lenses product category for the complete selection of ArduCAM lenses. Be sure to note the compatible lens mount height (7 mm, 10 mm, etc.) for each lens selected if you chose an M12 metal mount option. Note, each lens purchased separately comes with its appropriate height lens mount (plastic for M12, metal for CS), so you may choose to purchase the camera with only a generic plastic lens mount (to protect the sensor). Click on the Camera Lens Mounts product category for information about lens mounts, including compatibility with the various lenses.
The camera module is custom-designed to be connected to the host via the USB 2.0 interface.
