The Raspberry Pi NoIR Camera V2 is an upgrade from previous versions of the Raspberry Pi Camera, and offers a high quality Sony IMX219 8 megapixel image sensor. The NoIR stands for No Infrared, meaning that the infrared filter has been excluded from design. This allows the camera to view and record imagery in very low light, such as after hours of within enclosed, dimly lit spaces. It attaches to all three models of the Raspberry Pi (1, 2 and 3) and supports 1080p30, 760p60 and 640x480p90 video capture, as well as 3280 x 2464 pixel static images.

This module is easy to install and simply needs to be attached via a 15 cm ribbon cable in order to work, making it one of the easiest additions available that anyone can use. The night-vision capabilities also open up many more opportunities for utilizing the module as well, and now these cameras can reliably be utilized for home security or night-time recordings. Some of the more curious users also enjoy utilizing the NoIR camera to record images or videos in normal or intense lighting, which has proven to produce quite creative results as the contrasts between light and dark are accentuated – consequently creating “noir” scenes like those in detective films.

The primary aim of The Raspberry Pi Foundation is to enable people from all walks of life to understand, learn and develop our digital world with ideas that actually matter to them. Their single-board computers are designed with an open-source style, while being both easy to use and versatile. This allows people to build their own systems to cater to unique problems within their environment, while allowing them to share with and learn from others who are building similar types of systems – growing and developing the open-source movement in every step of the way.


The Raspberry Pi Foundation also takes their initiative a step further by building accessories like cameras, control interfaces and other products that can be seamlessly integrated into projects, made with high quality components but without the unnecessary frills that many brands choose to add on for “extra value”. This “no frills” approach makes their products more affordable while catering to consumers throughout the world, regardless of their financial condition. In doing so, people in almost any situation can use these products to improve their lives, better the world around them, and help develop both their local communities, as well as online communities of Makers.


Finally, like the cherry (or perhaps raspberry) on top of an already-great Sundae, The Raspberry Pi Foundation utilises the profits that they make to sponsor and host outreach and education efforts, with the intent to help people by making computing and digital development more accessible. They train educators and offer free resources online for people to learn from, giving consumers the power to change the world around them, and ultimately do their small part in developing the ever-expanding digital world too.
