Good morning team,
Firstly, love your work!
My board -
Pi Model 4B V1.1
Revision : c03111
SoC : BCM2711
RAM : 4096Mb
My camera -
Raspberry Pi NoIR Camera Board v2 - 8 Megapixels
SKU - CE04422
I’m just starting to use it, and when i take stills using the command:
raspistill -vf -o test1.jpg
I get an image which is extremely red.
Please view the below gallery of the images i have taken using -awb settings, then -ifx saturation,
I don’t know a lot about photography or graphics, mainly want to implement an in-home security device.
I am under halogen downlights @2700K if that’s important.
Your assistance in pointing me in the right direction would be much appreciated!
Looks like it’s working perfectly. The NoIR stands for No Infrared filter - so particularly in your situation there will be lots of light in the IR band that will give your images a red tint.
The only way to fix it is to change to a different type of light; fluorescent or LED. You’ll have the same issue with all incandescents (including halogens).
That or buy a different camera. (Or set up a system that puts an ir filter in front of the camera automatically)
That makes sense, I guess I did not understand the difference between the Raspberry Pi NoIR Camera Board V2 - 8 Megapixels (CE04422) and Raspberry Pi Camera Board V2 - 8 Megapixels (CE04421).
Is there any chance i could send back a NoIR and replace it with a standard one?
We’ll see what we can do, if you send through an email to firstname.lastname@example.org we’ll get onto that for you right away. Although it’s worth noting that with a NoIR camera you can use IR lights such as those below and have a night vision security system.
All the best with your projects!

I have now tested the camera with no non-natural and only dim natural light and it is still tinged pink. I spoke with a colleague of mine who has been dealing with raspberry pis and different lenses for some time, and said that this is not what is expected.
I am going to test it on another board, and also test another noIR camera.
Ok sorry to have troubled you, the other noIR camera is doing the same thing. If i do -awb greyworld, the image is tolerable.
Thanks for your attention, I’ll make sure it’s a Raspberry Pi Camera Board v2 - 8 Megapixels next time I’m ready to buy one.
No trouble at all! That’s what the forum’s here for, and if you’ve had a question you can pretty well guarantee someone else will have the same one. At worst, making a post here means you might help someone in future.
Good luck with your projects!
