Is there a flexible cable for the RPi Camera?

Fri Jun 02, 2017 2:59 am

If you look at various CSI camera modules, some of them come with flexible round cables instead of the flat, semi-flexible cable that by default comes with the RPi Camera.

Is there a flexible/round cable that is known to work for the Pi camera?

That would work for a bigger installation.

I'm actually considering putting the camera (two, actually) on a robot with a gimbal, and I need a cable that works better as the gimbal moves around>

I found a person who seems to make round cables to order:

That might be my best option!

Here's a picture of the gimbal I'm making and want to put it on:
