PTZ Camera Lens / Controller for Raspberry Pi-Compatible Cameras:
The PTZ Camera Lens / Controller for Raspberry Pi-Compatible Cameras (B0167) features two controllers to support user provided Pan and Tilt servo motors, plus two built-in servo motors to control Zoom and focus.
A motorized IR cutout filter is provided. If you supply your own sensor, it should not have an IR filter attached.
Lens / Mounts:
The 5MP and 8MP lens focal length ranges from 3.2 mm to 11.1 mm (~3.5x zoom). The mount is a 20 mm pitch for 1 mm machine screw. The 12 MP lens FOV (horizontal) is 96° to 33°.
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.
