Raspberry Pi Camera Module 3 is a compact camera from Raspberry Pi. It offers an IMX708 12-megapixel sensor with HDR, and features phase detection autofocus.

Camera Module 3 is available in standard and wide-angle variants, both of which are available with or without an infrared cut filter.

Camera Module 3 can be used to take full HD video as well as stills photographs, and features an HDR mode up to 3 megapixels. Its operation is fully supported by the libcamera library, including Camera Module 3’s rapid autofocus feature: this makes it easy for beginners to use, while offering plenty for advanced users. Camera Module 3 is compatible with all Raspberry Pi computers*.

The PCB size and mounting holes remain the same as for Camera Module 2. The Z dimension differs: due to the improved optics, Camera Module 3 is several millimetres taller than Camera Module 2.

All variants of Camera Module 3 feature:

• Back-illuminated and stacked CMOS 12-megapixel image sensor (Sony IMX708)

• High signal-to-noise ratio (SNR)

• Built-in 2D Dynamic Defect Pixel Correction (DPC)

• Phase Detection Autofocus (PDAF) for rapid autofocus

• QBC Re-mosaic function

• HDR mode (up to 3 megapixel output)

• CSI-2 serial data output

• 2-wire serial communication (supports I2C fast mode and fast-mode plus)

• 2-wire serial control of focus mechanism

*Excluding early Raspberry Pi Zero models, which lack the necessary FPC connector. Later Raspberry Pi Zero models require an adapter FPC, sold separately.
