This model does not have an IR filter meaning that for night shots with IR illumination, you will need these.

The raspberry pi camera is a 5MP camera designed specifically for the Raspberry Pi. This model works well with both the Raspberry Pi 1 & 2. This model does not have an IR filter meaning that for night shots with IR illumination, you will need these.


Connecting the Camera Module to your Pi:

A ribbon cable (included) attached to the module slots straight into your Pi Camera Serial Interface port (CSI). Once connected, you can access the camera board via the Multi-Media Abstraction Layer (MMAL) or the Video for Linux (V4L) APIs. Alternatively there are libraries such as Picamera Python, and many others that you can find online.

Product applications:

  • Infrared photography
  • Low light photography
  • Monitoring plant growth
  • CCTV security camera
  • HD videos and still photography at night
  • When used with IR LEDs you are able to see in the dark, so you can monitor plant health or even nocturnal animals

Note: IR LEDs are required for illumination when using the Pi NoIR camera module in the dark. In case you are still in doubt that, whether to build your project using Normal camera or NoIR camera, watch this to understand the difference between Normal camera and NoIR Camera
