It would be really hard thing to do, getting the connector ordered, figuring out the pinout of the camera, ensuring that you do not exceed any maximum ratings of the device, then figuring out which are the data lines, and how to interface to it. Try to find the datasheet (which might be something like 100 pages long) to figure out how to send and receive data to/from it. You're going to need some powerful embedded system and hopefully it has usable hardware in it to avoid having to do bit-banging.

Well getting datasheets is almost impossible.

If the samsung was working I wold have sugested Live Reverse Engineering it.


The only other suggestion working or not Reverse Engineering by tracing the circuits.


Even if you get someone who has reused one of the cameras the pinouts may not be the same because of production up grading. (Mid production redesign.)
