I've broken the gimball housing on my Mavic Air 1. Replacement cameras and teardown/replacement procedure vidoes are available online.

What I cant determine is if gimbal/camera replacment for the Air 1 requires DJI repair shopnew camera calibration and pairing to the motherboard or is this a DIY replacement which I can do at home without specialized pairing.

I've read some comments that the Air 2 and subsequent Air models require DJI shop pairing but nothing confirmed on this for the Air 1

Maybe I can simply transfer my original camera to a new gimbal or is it an intergrated unit?

No BUT you will need to download some free software including python and use that.
Newer drones ARE paired and require software to match This is for now available from other vendors over the net for a fee. The air 1 if memory serves does not need that.
