As Paul said

Please use a recent version of ffmpeg, your version is 4.2.9 (about five 
years old) the current version is 7.0
The last mipi interface specification was also released five years ago 
and probably was not yet incorporated ffmpeg at that time, if your 
current hardware is less than five years old, do not expect it to work 
with software that was written before it's existence....

This might work for mipi (no guarantees, adjust parameters according to 
your actual hardware specifications and use a recent ffmpeg version)
ffmpeg -pix_fmt bayer_bggr8 -f v4l2 -s 1280x960 -i /dev/video0 -c:v 
libx264 -preset ultrafast output.mp4
