A new upgraded camera for Raspberry Pi boards. The new camera features a 12-Megapixel IMX708 sensor, HDR capabilities, and a powered auto-focus.

This new model has HDR support, improved low-light performance, and phase-detect powered auto-focus.

  • 75 Degrees FoV (120 Degrees on "Wide" models)
  • Compatible with Raspberry Pi boards with a CSI port that uses the standard cable
  • 7.4mm diagonal sensor


Camera Module 3 is compatible with all Raspberry Pi computers with CSI connectors — that is, all except Raspberry Pi 400 and the 2016 launch version of Zero. Board dimensions and mounting-hole positions are identical to Camera Module 2. Due to changes in the size and position of the sensor module, it is not mechanically compatible with the camera lid for the Raspberry Pi Zero Case.

The new Camera Module 3 is only supported by the modern libcamera software environment and by the libcamera-based Picamera2 beta under Raspberry Pi OS Bullseye, and not by the legacy closed-source camera stack – you’ll need to make sure you have the latest version of the software before you dig in, as only the latest release has autofocus support. But don’t worry, the hardware and software documentation has been updated to get you going, including the documentation around the Picamera2 library.
