The latest and greatest version of the Raspberry Pi camera module is a wonderfully designed and engineered contraption that is equipped with 8-megapixel functioning that makes for a clear and present upgrade over the 5-megapixel OmniVision camera sensor that was previously situated right at the heart of the Raspberry Pi camera module released back in 2013.

This particular fixed-focus Raspberry Pi camera module is powered on Sony's IMX219 CMOS sensor, something which allows it to boast a pixel count of 3,280 x 2,464, over 8 megapixels in all. The camera is also capable of promising high sensitivity, low interference and significantly boosted image quality.

Ultimately, this Raspberry Pi camera module allows for the capturing of high-quality images from a compact package with minimum hassle and maximum results.
