This is the earlier version of Raspberry Pi Camera Module, so called the 5 Megapixel, Rev 1.3 camera module. It is a custom designed add-on for Raspberry Pi and is compatible with all Raspberry Pi model including:

It attaches to Raspberry Pi by way of one of the two small sockets on the board upper surface, there is a label of"CAMERA". This interface uses the dedicated CSI interface, which was designed especially for interfacing to cameras. The CSI bus is capable of extremely high data rates, and it exclusively carries pixel data.

Note: Raspberry Pi is NOT INCLUDED.

    The board itself is tiny, at around 25mm x 20mm x 9mm. It also weighs just over 3grams, making it perfect for mobile or other applications where size and weight are important. The camera is connected to the BCM2835 processor on the Pi via the CSI bus. This bus travels along the cable(FFC - Flexible Flat Cable) that attaches the camera board to the Pi. Yes, we know Raspberry Pi Zero and Zero W has different CSI connector, this camera comes with 2 different FFC cables, one for standard Raspberry Pi(Model A, B and B+) and the compact Raspberry Pi (The Zero series).

    The sensor itself has a native resolution of 5 megapixel, and has a fixed focus lens onboard. In terms of still images, the camera is capable of 2592 x 1944 pixel static images, and also supports 1080p @ 30fps, 720p @ 60fps and 640x480p 60/90 video.

    The camera is supported in the latest version of Raspbian, Raspberry Pi's preferred operating system.
