Does it have all the features that Raspberry Pi OS has? i.e. camera support etc?

I can't speak for all the imgs they have there, but the ones made with my builder work. Only thing I haven't tested is the DSI as I have nothing to test it with. That being said, cams don't work all that great on aarch64 in general, so one would need to make an armel or armhf img.
