My team is interested is taking as high quality pictures as possible and was wondering if anyone had any experience working with third party cameras. We were planning on working with this 13 MP camera from Econ-systems:

Do you wish to use the CSI bus or a USB camera? If you plan on using the CSI bus there is not any high res cameras that I know of but would be glad to hear of any. If so the default picamera library would not work, you may have to write your own driver and software for it. If you are using a USB camera some of the funcitonallity in the picamera library for PYthon will work but you would have to write a new program to implement it and I am not sure how high a resolution camera would work with it. It depends if you could find a driver for it that will work on the pi. The highest resolution camera that I know of is the 8Mp picamera V2 that needs the newer version of the Raspbian OS, which would require new software to be written for the RFD program unless you were using it with something else. If there is any alternatives I would love to know about it.
