Used this in a bunch of pi projects in the past.  This one is an original Pi camera so should work with any of the existing Pi's.

Here are the specs:

  • 5 megapixel sensor-capable of 2592 x 1944 pixel static images
  • Supports 1080p30, 720p60 and 640x480p60/90 video
  • Software is supported in the latest version of Raspbian.

They seem to have a bunch of other Pi and Beaglebone products and accessories as well.

or from AMZ for 15 bucks shipped free w/ prime: https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B012V1HEP4/

The one in the priginal post was for an authentic Raspberry Pi camera - haven't used one from other manufacturers so cant speak to the quality etc.

Good find though if you have prime.


Yeah great deal! Used to be $25 or more.

These AVID ones are the original Pi cameras. I believe they are related to the company that makes the Raspberry Pi's and cameras too! Plan to get a few.

Not sure about the ones on AMZ.


RPi camera v1.3 from Avid Tech
Just picked up a couple from Avid, and they are indeed the "name brand" generation 1 5MP camera (shown).  No shipping charge if you will-call pickup, btw -- if you happen to be around Twinsburg OH (Akron/Cleveland). 

Also btw, this includes the cable to attach to a full-size RPi -- but the RPi Zero has a smaller connector and requires a camera adapter cable.  That appears to be ~ $5-$8 (eBay, Microcenter, etc.) or there's an adapter widget 2-for-$10 on Amazon, here
