Raspberry Pi Camera Module 3 is the latest camera model released by Raspberry Pi Official in 2023. The camera series adopts Sony 11.9MP IMX708 Image Sensor which can be used to take full HD video as well as stills photographs, and features an HDR mode up to 3 megapixels.
Camera Module 3 Series
The IMX708 Series includes standrad angle version, standrad angle NoIR version, 102° wide angle version and 102° wide angle NoIR versione. All of these cameras adopt Phase Detection
These Cameras are fully supported by the libcamera and Picamera2 library. Camera Module 3 is compatible with all Raspberry Pi computers.
Make Camera Module 3 More Flexible
The goal of our IMX708 line is to make the foundation's first autofocus camera the jack of all trades for all possible MV-based projects, we'd like to see them adopted by industrial practitioners for their quality and incomparable price-performance ratio.
We can even turn them into industrial cameras if needed.
To make the most enthralling features (HDR/PDAF/etc.) of the V3 camera more versatile, we have up-to-2m ribbon cables, adapters that extend them to 5/15 meters, multiplexers you can use to hook multiple ones to a Pi.
As for the IMX708 sensor the official V3 cameras use, we made variants that are fixed-focus for those who don't want the autofocus function (drone/UAV/etc. applications).
we turned them into standard USB interfaces for builders to use them on boards other than Pi, we make a quad-camera kit so four of them can work in perfect synchronization for robotic applications, and if you want wider FOVs with fisheye lenses, we got that too.
In short, our V3 series expands the camera V3 from four to four options!

Hardware Connection for Raspberry Pi 4B / Pi Zero
For the hardware connection of IMX708 Quad-Camera Kit, please refer to:
Raspberry Pi Multi-Camera Kit Hardware Connection Guide
- 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=imx708 #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
