My name is Linden Scholes and I am an Australian medical student undertaking a year of masters research at the Delft University of Technology. I am looking into minimally invasive surgical device redesign for low and middle income countries. I am interested into implementing phone camera technology into my design but due to my medical background I am trying to find experts in the field that I may be able to ask some questions of. Is there someone that I could speak to from your phone camera engineering department? Any help would be greatly appreciated!
I think you will find that to be a very difficult request, if at all possible. Apple tends to protect their and their vendor's engineering details behind patents and NDAs.
At your level, I think it will be an uphill task to get someone from Apple (that has the info you seek), to even give you the time of day.
Good luck in any case.
