In hobbyist electronics, it’s often fun to incorporate Camera Modules into projects to add another layer of interfacing, so that projects can actually get a visual grasp of the surrounding environment and either act or react in various ways according to what they see. Additionally, cameras can also be highly beneficial for simple monitoring or recording in applications like gate access systems, alarm systems or even for remote 3D Printer viewing. This multifunctional style makes Cameras quite valuable in the hobbyist realm, although as beneficial as they might be in a variety of different projects, it’s quite obvious that hobbyist cameras aren’t necessarily designed for extreme quality, and that’s why every now and then we like to get a hold of camera modules that actually focus on bringing good quality in addition to easy usability, and the NVIDIA Jetson Nano Camera IMX477 is an excellent example of just that, featuring a 12.3MP resolution and including a C/CS Adapter for mounting specialised lenses onto the front.

The IMX477 HQ Camera is unique in the hobbyist realm, as most Camera Modules don’t typically support external lenses, with these specialised cameras coming with a C/CS-Mount adapter installed directly on the front. Unfortunately, this specialisation comes at the cost of actually requiring a lens to operate properly, so be sure to check out our C- and CS-Mount Lenses to find one (or more) that suit your needs, but this minor issue is quickly forgotten once you see the great quality that this camera and associated lenses can achieve. This quality is a direct result of utilising analogue image manipulation rather than digital, with the analogue telephoto and zoom lenses helping to diminish quality loss to nearly zero, while bringing imagery forward to make things seem closer and capture higher quality images without the typical losses associated with digital zoom techniques. This is all complemented perfectly with support for both the NVIDIA Jetson Nano development platforms as well as the Raspberry Pi Compute Module 3 (CM3) Boards, with just a simple ribbon cable and some drivers required to get up and running and capturing great quality images with ease.

Please Note: This camera module requires a C- or CS-Mount Lense to operate properly, so if you’re looking for a cool lens to attach to the included adapter for this IMX477 Camera Module, be sure to check out our C/CS-Mount Lens Range to find options for both telephoto and zoom, as well as possibly more to come in the future.

When it comes to producing unique electronics components and modules, there are very few brands that can provide the quality that Waveshare can. Based in the Futian District in Shenzhen, China, Waveshare are experts in developing electronics to a high standard of quality, which have been thoroughly tested to work seamlessly with corresponding development platforms and systems – such as the E-Ink HATs for Raspberry Pi’s.

What we love most about Waveshare is how they are dedicated to providing quality products, and have moved away from the typical “Made in China” stigma – cheap products with cheap parts and components. Instead, Waveshare understand the value of supplying quality products and building sustainable relationships with international resellers and distributors. They know that consistent quality will result in consistent business, and as such they always ensure strict quality control for each and every product that comes out of the manufacturing plant.

We are always excited to peruse through their vast catalogue of exciting new products to find unique modules, components or even entire development boards that are designed with quality in mind. Because we know that every cent that we spend with Waveshare will be well-spent, with each product that order adding real value to our own catalogue of products.
