Raspberry Pi Is Now Selling a 12-Megapixel Camera for Only $50

•, by Matthew Gault

The Raspberry Pi Foundation is making a new camera board that will let users build their own cameras to take high quality photos. It's called High Quality Camera and it comes with a 12.3 megapixel Sony IMX477 sensor, and supports C and CS mount lenses. Oh, and it only costs $50.

The High Quality Camera will improve image quality over the Raspberry Pi Foundation's previous camera board, which relied on smaller resolution sensors and used fixed focus-lenses. The C and CS mounts will let the High Quality Camera use a wide range of existing lenses, including Cannon's various lenses, giving the user a lot of control over the image quality. Price conscious enthusiasts can get started with a Raspberry Pi branded $25 6mm CS-mount lens or a $50 16mm C-mount lens.
