Maybe we use something like this => OmniVision Technologies Inc OV14825-A16A ($23) with FPGA?
(however, is having an NDA very friendly to open hardware/hacking/making community? - I don't think so...much due diligence ahead)
ON semi/Aptina MT9F002I12-N4001-PF ($69) seems more promising, but no stock from Arrow/Digi-key?

1) think and scope out the first cut of a platform to house the first cut of image sensor hardware
