The Sony IMX296 is a global shutter CMOS image sensor with a resolution of 1.6 megapixels and a pixel size of 3.4µm x 3.4µm. A global shutter sensor captures an entire image at once, unlike a rolling shutter sensor that scans an image line by line. This means that global shutter sensors can avoid distortion and motion blur when capturing fast-moving objects.
The Sony IMX296 sensor is suitable for various industrial and machine vision applications, such as robotics, inspection, surveillance, and high-speed imaging. It can also be used with different types of lenses, such as C/CS-mount lenses, and can be integrated with Arducam camera module for embedded system/platforms using.

Hardware Connection for Raspberry Pi 4B / Pi Zero
- Please make sure you are running the latest version of Raspberry Pi OS. (January 28th，2022 or later releases, Debian version:11(Bullseye)). You need to update the config file and use libcamera apps.
- The official IMX708 Camera Module 3 can be used on Raspberry Pi directly(B0306, B0307). Arducam Camera Module 3 will need some modification on configuration, please refer to the following content:
For Raspberry Bullseye users running on Pi 4, please do the following:
sudo nano /boot/config.txt #Find the line: camera_auto_detect=1, update it to: camera_auto_detect=0 dtoverlay=imx296 #Save and reboot.
For Bullseye users running on Pi 0 ~ 3, please also:
Open a terminal Run sudo raspi-config Navigate to Advanced Options Enable Glamor graphic acceleration Reboot your Pi
If you encounter the display issues, please also execute the following steps:
Open a terminal Run sudo raspi-config Navigate to Advanced Options Navigate to GL Driver Select GL (Full KMS) Reboot your Pi
For Raspberry Pi Compute Module 3/4
