I'm interested in making a DIY DSLR project out of a Raspberry Pi (likely the Zero Wireless model), and I am wondering how much support I might be able to get to connect a different Sony Exmor sensor (IMX???) with the Raspberry Pi. Currently, I'm looking at the newer models ( https://www.sony-semicon.co.jp/products ... index.html ) -- The IMX299 (4/3rds size sensor) seems like the easiest to connect to a Pi given that it also has a 4-lane MIPI interface like the Camera Board V2 (which is based on the IMX219). I understand that I'd need to get schematics and route a PCB and use a contract manufacturer and sample the parts from a distributor to create such a board.
The biggest unknowns for me are if the MIPI interface on the BCM2835 with its firmware might support the IMX299 vs the IMX219. I also do not have pricing on the sample or quantity rates of the IMX299 (or ideally in the future, the IMX410 - though that uses a different interface which would likely require additional hardware).
Would anyone else be interested in working on this with me, assuming it is possible?
