Pi NoIR 8MP Camera Module V2
Raspberry Pi Foundation now launches another top-quality, high-resolution night vision camera. The Original Pi NoIR Camera Module now carries advanced features with the upgraded 8 Megapixel infrared Pi NoIR Camera v2. Thanks to the Sony IMX219 (8 MP) the quality is far better than OmniVision 5647 (5MP) found in the original camera module.
Pi NoIR doesn’t feature an infrared filter which leads to the fact that the pictures aren’t going to be top-notch quality during the daylight but the good thing is that you’ll be able to see around through the dark, thanks to an impressive infrared feature.
