Do you guys have a recipe for working with Arducam MIPI cameras? It is not v4l2.

In principle, yes. But unfortunately nothing that would just work out of the box. To be able to use all features of the camera you need a proper camera driver. On Linux this means either V4L2 or GenTL. The former requires a kernel module, the latter takes no stance. It can in principle be implemented in user space e.g. through command-line tools. You can create a custom GenTL driver as outlined here: https://doc.visionappster.com/latest/cameras/drivers/ The process is however quite tedious unless you are familiar with the intricacies of GenICam.
Another option is to create a custom tool for the purpose of getting images from the camera. Currently, this is only possible in C or C++ (see https://doc.visionappster.com/latest/api/tool/c/), but the next release will come with Python support.
@Topi Hmm, ok, so using Arducam's C SDK this sounds doable.
