The original iPad Mini and the iPad Mini Retina use different cameras. The iPad Air and the iPad Mini Retina share the same rear camera - part number 821-1521-A. The original iPad Mini uses a different rear camera - part number 821-1521-06. I'm not sure what you consider to be a reasonable price, but you can find the correct part here.


If you check this image, it appears that the bracket on the camera is different. But upon closer inspection, I think that the bracket pictured is only held in place with adhesive. Good catch! Thanks!
