The Raspberry Pi HQ Camera Module has been around for a few months, but we hadn’t quite gotten around to fully exploring the 12-megapixel, high-resolution imaging it provides – until now. We decided to test the camera’s wide angle and telephoto lenses out to show you a comparison between the two.

Professional, high-resolution imaging with Raspberry Pi!

It was a lot of fun to show the differences between Raspberry Pi’s new HQ lenses – the high-res gif below is a good example. Now let’s talk a little more about the Raspberry Pi HQ Camera Module and lenses.

Rollin' down the street with a doggo.

The High Quality Camera Module is a camera sensor designed to accept CS-mount lenses and, with the supplied adapter, C-mount lenses for use with the Raspberry Pi single board computer line. It offers higher resolution (12 megapixels, compared to eight megapixels), and sensitivity (approximately 50 percent greater area per pixel for improved low-light performance) than the existing Camera Module v2.

The telephoto lens produces a 3 MP picture in a half-inch image format, and is easily interchangeable using the thumb screw and adapter included with the Pi HQ camera module. Meanwhile, the wide angle lens produces a 10 MP picture in a one-inch image format, and is easily interchangeable using the thumb screw and adapter included with the Pi HQ Camera Module.

If you need a camera option for your Raspberry Pi at a more economical price point with only slightly reduced quality, the Raspberry Pi Camera Module V2 and the Raspberry Pi Camera Module – Pi NoIR V2 both offer 8 MP of resolution and are capable of 3280 x 2464 pixel static images, and also support 1080p30, 720p60 and 640x480p90 video.
