For what purpose?

This sub-form is for discussions of the official R-Pi cameras, of which there are only two: the "regular" version (normal color) and the "Pi No-IR" version (lacks IR filter, so it sees near-infrared, but also has mostly pale/ washed-out/ reddish colors). For most applications in daytime, the "normal" Pi camera is the right choice because the colors will appear normal. The other version would mostly be used as a night-time security camera together with separate IR lights.

If you mean USB type cameras, you can choose whatever you like but that isn't specifically related to the Pi board.

In the dark as well, then the NoIR.
If only in the light, then the normal would be best.
There are 10 types of people: those who understand binary and those who don't.
