Camera board comparisons: Pi NoIR v1 vs Pi NoIR v2

Post Syndicated from Liz Upton original https://www.raspberrypi.org/blog/camera-board-comparisons-pi-noir-v1-vs-pi-noir-v2/

The new 8 megapixel Raspberry Pi camera board has been out for just over a month, and we’ve been seeing some really impressive work being done with it. As many of you know, we also make a version of the board with no infrared (IR) filter: the . Version 2 of the has also been upgraded to use an 8 megapixel Sony sensor. People use the to see in the dark (especially useful for wildlife traps and for cams), to achieve some wacky effects, and to work on hyperspectral imaging.

What we haven’t seen so far is any comparison of the output from the Pi NoIR v1 and the Pi NoIR v2. So we were really pleased to find this from Andr.oid Eric which demonstrates the cameras’ output side by side, alongside output from both cameras with a selection of IR and UV filters.

Let us know in the comments if you have your own comparison photos or video from v1 and v2 of either of the camera boards – we’d love to see more!
