Raspberry Pi camera modules
- 2013 5 megapixel
- 2016 8 megapixel

But factor in the huge and growing smartphone market that drive camera R&D and it probably won't be long before we see pi camera modules that rival powershots in resolution and image quality.

Dear dtic,

I dont have high hopes for this. Current Smartphone-cameras are using multiple MIPI lanes (2 or 4 or even more) to connect to a camera. The RPi has only one MIPI-Lane as input and the only available camera in the market that has only one mipi-lane is the rpi-cam.

So this might become a reality, if the RPi4 or later models have 4 or more MIPI-Lanes, but as far as I know this is not planned.

smartphone cameras have high Megapixel but compared to a canon ixus or powershot or compared to a nikon coolpix smartphone cameras have very shitty optics.

cheers
