StereoPi has introduced a new version of its stereoscopic camera expansion board, the StereoPi V2. The company has designed its new expansion board for the Raspberry Pi Compute Module 4, which also brings a USB Type-C port, two USB Type-A ports and Gigabit Ethernet to the pocket-sized board.

It has only been a few weeks since the Raspberry Pi Foundation released its latest Compute Module, but third-party companies like StereoPi have already got expansion boards lined up. The StereoPi V2, like its predecessor, is primarily intended to be used to capture stereoscopic images via its two camera connectors. However, the improved performance that the Compute Module 4 (CM4) offers also allows the StereoPi V2 to be used for advanced photo and video editing.

The StereoPi V2 makes use of the CM4's onboard ports, including Gigabit Ethernet. Additionally, the StereoPi V2 has two USB Type-A ports, a Type-C port, a micro HDMI connection and a microSD card slot for installing OSes. StereoPi has included a 40-pin GPIO header, too. All the connections that the StereoPi V2 includes can be viewed below.

According to the manufacturer, there is a 65 mm gap between the two CSI camera connectors, allowing the StereoPi V2 to support native stereoscopic photography in Raspbian. The StereoPi V2 also supports VR via the Oculus Quest, while it can control RC vehicles, too. StereoPi is yet to announce when it plans to launch the StereoPi V2, or for how much. The old model cost around US$70 though, so the V2 will probably in the ballpark of that figure.
