5MP OV5647


5MP OV5647 cameras, namely the V1 camera series, are used a lot on Raspberry Pi camera applications. Unlike the V2 cameras which are encrypted on the camera board with a chip, the 5MP OV5647 cameras can be easily modified and customized by third-party manufacturers, thus you will see a lot of variations of this series.

Release Time

OminiVision launched this sensor in late 2009, it became popular since RPi foundation’s release of the OV5647-powered camera module V1,in 2013.

At Arducam

Since the release of OV5647, we have designed several versions with different features according to different needs: IR-CUT, Motorized Focus, PT&PTZ , M12/CS .


Arducam 5MP OV5647 Motorized IR-CUT Camera Modules are designed for both daylight and night vision photography. The motorized IR cut filter can be switched ON/OFF automatically, and the infrared LEDs are automatically ON/OFF according to the light environment. The cameras in this serial are fully supported by all the Raspberry Pi board versions including Pi 4, Pi 3 and Pi Zero. They can be widely used in wildlife photography, agriculture NDVI applications and etc.

Motorized Focus

Arducam 5MP OV5647 Motorized Focus Camera Modules are designed for you to control the focus via software, so you can see closer and see where you want to see.


Arducam PT camera can move in two dimensions with 180 degrees horizontal and 145 degrees vertical movements. So it can be used to monitor places that should be covered by multiple ones commonly in the surveillance system.

Arducam PTZ cameras are the complete solution to turn your Raspberry Pi cameras into a fully functional surveillance camera that covers 360 degrees space. With the software autofocus function, you can clearly focus on your target when zooming. The IRCUT control also helps both the daylight and night vision.
