Electrical – How to pick the right CSI camera module


I'm looking for a camera module that supports CSI for general photography, so I need reasonable resolution and overall quality. However I can't find any comparisons and there are dozens of modules to choose from. How do I pick the best one?

MIPI CSI bus cameras require diff. pair routing lanes, and the hardware that can receive the signal. The bandwidth of your receiving hardware is a limiting factor. Of course all normal camera specs come into play. Things to consider include whether this is for a hobbyists toy or production product. There are tons of trade-offs to consider. If this is a hobby, perhaps going with something more hobbyist friendly is recommendable.
