The Raspberry Pi Camera Module 3 is the latest compact camera from Raspberry Pi. and is available in standard and also night (NoiR) variants. NoIR is for night use only. Both the standard and NoIR variants additionally offer a wide-angle version.

It offers an IMX708 12-megapixel sensor with HDR, and features phase detection autofocus. Camera Module 3 is available in standard and wide-angle variants, both of which are available with or without an infrared cut filter.

Camera Module 3 can be used to take full HD video as well as stills photographs,
and features an HDR mode up to 3 megapixels. Its operation is fully supported by the libcamera library, including Camera Module 3’s rapid autofocus feature: this makes it easy for beginners to use, while offering plenty for advanced users.

The PCB size and mounting holes remain the same as for Camera Module 2.

The Z dimension differs: due to the improved optics, Camera Module 3 is several millimetres taller than Camera Module 2.
