- Why did not you go with IMX219 for sensor ?
As Gavinmc42 said, main argument is that ov5647 is clonable because of missing crypto chip. Sice Amomthep doesn't use a camera board but raw camera chip, imx219 is no option.
Another is price point, you can buy a v2 camera module for 25$, but a v1 camera module for 3$ incl. shipping on aliexpress.
You might be interested in a niche application of ov5647 sensor with raspivid, global (external) shutter capturing (needs bright flash):

1 second from 25fps video with 36µs strobe pulse duration, played at 5fps:
multiple exposures of fast moving object at daylight (five 9µs strobe pulse duration exposures, 116µs apart):
You can even capture airgun pellet in flight (109m/s) multiple times:
Just software that you can use for free.
