First picture shows the camera port.

Second picture shows the Micro-USB port to access the eMMC.

The camera port uses an HDMI connector to transmit CSI signals. To use it, you need:
  • Raspberry Pi Camera (HQ or V2 or NoIR V2)
  • Pi Camera HDMI Cable Extension (adapts CSI signals to HDMI interface)
  • HDMI cable with Mini HDMI plug (Type C) on one end (plugs into the RevPi Compact) and regular HDMI plug (Type A) on the other end (plugs into the CSI adapter)

Hi Lukas,

If I understand correctly, this camera interface is actually a CSI, just using microHDMI as the physical interface. If I want to use it in my project, do I have to use Raspberry Pi Camera? Are other industrial cameras supported?

Best regards.

Yes, it is a CSI Interface. The official Raspberry Pi Camera Module work on Compact.
The closed source GPU firmware has drivers for Unicam and three camera sensors plus a bridge chip. Refer Firmware section from link below:
