I have an Apple iPhone front and rear cameras along with its A4 motherboard (yep, I disassembled it) is it possible that I can get a live feed from these camera(s) to a display and connected to a power source? or maybe storing the recorded thing on a memory drive? I could not find the exact terms so the searches were not relevant. (images for reference attached)

  • \$\begingroup\$ @Finbarr so I won't be able to use these cameras somewhere else? \$\endgroup\$ – PlopMon Jan 30 '18 at 11:14
  • \$\begingroup\$ Unless you can get documentation on how to use the cameras, which I doubt, you would need to use specialised equipment and a lot of time and knowledge to figure that out for yourself, then design and program your own circuits to talk to them with no support available from anyone. Good luck! \$\endgroup\$ – Finbarr Jan 30 '18 at 15:40
  • \$\begingroup\$ @Finbarr so should I post another question on 'how to create a simple circuit sending camera footage to a display?' since your comment solved my question \$\endgroup\$ – PlopMon Feb 2 '18 at 13:24
  • \$\begingroup\$ That question would almost certainly be closed as too broad. What is it you're trying to achieve exactly? \$\endgroup\$ – Finbarr Feb 2 '18 at 13:39

After understanding @Finbarr 's comments:

And also that:

A smartphone will have a microprocessor, interface chips and lots of software in the middle

It seems that my requirement cannot be fulfilled according to the way I wanted to.
