OV5647 – 5.0 MP NoIR Camera Module w/ M12 Lens:

The OV5647 – 5.0 MP NoIR Camera Module w/ M12 Lens (LS-27227) is based on the same OV5647 color sensor from OmniVision as the official Raspberry Pi camera. The sensor has a 1/4.0″ optical format, which combined with the pixel size of 1.4 µm x 1.4 µm, provides the 5.0 MP 2592 x 1944 QSXGA 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 is supplementary to the official Raspberry Pi camera in order to fulfill the demands for different lens mount, field of view (FOV) and depth of the field (DOF).

Lens Mounts:

The lens mount for this module is the M12, and ships with the LS-27227 lens.

The key benefit of the standardized lens mount used for this module is the simplicity in swapping the lens – fisheye, wide-angle, telephoto, zoom, IR or NoIR filter – all of which are available from DLSCorp. Note that this camera module is available as either M12 mount or CS mount only, for any compatible lens, sold separately. Click on the Camera Lenses product category for the complete selection of ArduCAM lenses. Be sure to note the compatible lens mount height (Short, Medium, Tall) for each lens selected. Each lens comes with an appropriate height lens mount (plastic for M12, metal for CS), so you may choose to purchase the camera with a generic plastic lens mount (which is in place to protect the sensor). Click on the Camera Lens Mounts product category for information about lens mounts, including compatibility with the various lenses.

Raspberry Pi Interface:

The camera module is a custom-designed add-on for the Raspberry Pi system boards. The board itself is tiny, at around 36 mm x 36 mm. The camera is connected to the BCM2835 processor on the Pi via the CSI bus. The CSI bus is capable of extremely high data rates, and it carries pixel data exclusively. A 15-pin flexible flat cable (FFC) connects the camera to the CSI socket on the Raspberry Pi; additional lengths of the FFC cables are also available.

The camera is supported in the latest version of Raspbian, Raspberry Pi’s preferred operating system.
