I'm planning to buy a camera board for my RPi (I have RPi B+ and RPi2). I see some sellers highlight that their cameras are compatible with certain RPi version.

Is it possible to buy an incompatible RPi camera (given that it isn't a third party CSI camera but one from the RPi foundation)?


All the foundation cameras work with all available RPi revisions (A, A+, B, B+, 2B, compute module). I can say this with some confidence having used the modules on all revisions (except the compute module - I haven't got my hands on one of those yet!).

The same is probably true of the third party camera modules given that all of them are based on the same chip (OV5647), but I'm not 100% certain there.
