Raspberry Pi Camera Gets Its First Upgrade, 8MP and Better in Low Light

The 5MP Omnivision camera module was the Raspberry Pi's very first add-on, but in the three years since it was release it hasn't gotten a single update... that is, until today.

I always tell people that the problem with phone cameras is the lenses. This isn't a thesis that is easy to test because you can't swap the lens on a phone without destroying it. But now the Raspberry Pi has a camera module that's basically a phone camera sensor. It's also easy to get an Raspberry Pi camera module with a C mount so you can easily change lenses.

I also own a Nikon DSLR camera for which I have a few lenses, so I bought a C mount to F mount (Nikon) lens adapter so I can use the big DSLR lenses with the Raspberry Pi camera
