I have a camera working fine when connected to the 2 lane MIPI DSI camera port. But I need to connect it to the 2 lane MIPI DSI display port. However when I connect it and check for detected cameras with

vcgencmd get_camera

I get:

supported = 1, detected = 0

How can I make it work?

I'm using raspberry 4 B with Raspbian 10

The "Camera" port on the Raspberry is not a DSI (which stands for Display Serial Interface), but a CSI (Camera Serial Interface). While similar, they are electrically different and cannot be used instead of each other:


DSI Connector


CSI Connector
