Hi all,I'm a noob to your site so firstly Thanx for having me and thumbs up to the site,.I have a cheap android tab made by British firm I.T 1gb ram quad core 1.7ghz and more importantly a really crappy camera,my question to any geeks out there that can help me is, can I take a camera module out of any old device,open my little I.T tablet and swap the camera??? The old device I have in mind is a lumia 625,are most connecters the same? And would I need to change any type of driver or whatever it is that tablets use for there hardware like a computer would use a driver.thanx in advance for any help and I also apologise if iam way of the ball with this thought

If you're really good at soldering, you might be able to "swap it out", but, more likely than not, using "the camera module out of any old device" as a replacement is NOT going to work. The hardware and the software in the device were designed to work specifically with the "crappy" camera that's in it. If you were able to attach one with different (better) specifications, the other hardware and/or software in the device wouldn't even know how to use it.
