I read that 12 megapixel iPhone cameras don’t record video in 12 megapixels because the processors are not able to keep up. It seems though, that if I could plug the CMOS sensor to the CPU of a laptop, I could process all 12 megapixels at 60 fps.
The only other problem would be that plugging the camera in through USB would be too slow since USB 3.0 is only 600 MBps. Instead, I want to use the mPCIe slot the wireless module goes into.
Is this possible?
