The infrared Raspberry Pi (NoIR) Camera Module V2 has a Sony IMX219 8-megapixel sensor (compared to the 5-megapixel OmniVision OV5647 sensor of the original camera).
The RPi NoIR gives you everything the regular Camera Module offers, with one difference: it does not employ an infrared filter (NoIR = No Infrared). 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.
The camera works with all models of Raspberry Pi.
