The infrared Raspberry Pi Camera Module 2 NoIR replaced the original PiNoIR Camera Module?in?April 2016. The v2 Pi NoIR?has a Sony IMX219 8-megapixel sensor (compared to the 5-megapixel OmniVision OV5647 sensor of the original camera).
The Pi NoIR gives you everything the?regular Camera Module?offers, with one difference: it does not employ an infrared filter. (NoIR =?No?Infrared filter.) This means that pictures you take by daylight will look decidedly curious, but it gives you the ability to see in the dark with infrared lighting.
