Product Description
The official Raspberry Pi Camera Module is a 5 megapixel custom designed add-on for Raspberry Pi, featuring a fixed focus lens. It's capable of 2592 x 1944 pixel static images, and also supports 1080p30, 720p60 and 640x480p60/90 video.

It attaches to Pi by way of one of the small sockets on the board upper surface via the camera's included ribbon cable, and uses the dedicated CSi interface, designed especially for interfacing to cameras.

The board itself is tiny, at around 25mm x 20mm x 9mm. It also weighs just over 3g, making it perfect for mobile or other applications where size and weight are important.
