The StereoPi v2 is the follow-up to the 2019 first-generation model, which brought stereoscopic photography to the Raspberry Pi Compute Module 3. Similarly, the StereoPi v2 enables the functionality of the Compute Module 4. The StereoPi v2 also supports the CM4 Lite.

The StereoPi V2 is a camera system that its creators have designed for the Raspberry Pi Compute Module 4. Intially teased last year, the expansion builds off the original StereoPi, which the company of the same name released in 2019. The first StereoPi supported the older Compute Module 3, hence the release of a second-generation model that supports the newer Compute Module 4 and Compute Module 4 Lite.

According to the manufacturer, the StereoPi V2 has two MIPI CSI camera connectors for shooting stereoscopic photos, along with 'hackable camera lines'. Photos and videos can be recorded on a microSD card, while StereoPi has also included a micro HDMI port for outputting data to an external display. Moreover, there is a Gigabit Ethernet connection, two USB Type-A ports and a USB Type-C port for power. The StereoPi V2 supports Wi-Fi via the Compute Module 4, though.

Additionally, StereoPi sells a V2 kit with a small TFT IPS screen that can act as a viewfinder and a physical shutter button should you wish to use the device as a conventional camera. The camera kit includes two Sony IMX219 cameras too and all the equipment required to get the StereoPi V2 working.

The StereoPi V2 starts at US$45 for the Slim version on Crowd Supply, which does without the board's RJ45 connector, its GPIO header and its dual USB Type-A stack. StereoPi charges US$49 for the standard edition with these connectors and US$129 for the camera kit without a Compute Module 4 and an external antenna. If you want these, then StereoPi sells them as part of the full camera kit for US$169. Incidentally, the company sells a PoE HAT for US$19 and a metal housing for US$49.
