I wonder if this camera Camera Module for Raspberry Pi Zero also works with the Raspberry Pi 3? I could not find any information about its compatibility to other RPi models.

No, this particular camera module can't be used with Raspberry Pi 3.

While the camera hardware itself would work, the ribbon cable is of a different size and won't fit.


Camera's flex cable is less wide in RPi 1 than in RPi 3, so You ( and also I ) can not use same camera in both models.

  • It's the same camera only the cable is different.
