No, the camera driver for the Foundation camera board is built in to the GPU, and is closed source.

Hello
That is really a pity for such a project.
Nevettheless do you know any camera who has its driver open and hughly customizable ( focus, time of exposure...)?

I would really appreciate if you can answer to this question

One man's pity is another man's "Oh that does load of stuff already, what a great bit of kit"

Do you mean a camera that runs on the Raspi? If so, no, there are no other cameras that work (unless you can find a webcam that has those facilities). You can change exposure settings on the raspi with a command line option, but you cannot yet specific an exposure time. Other options are also available.
