I would be willing to contribute to this from the software side and possibly donate resources-- schematic capture, pcb layout, or pcb assembly. 

I'm not crazy about the ov5647 because from the specs, it doesn't look like it's going to do that well in low light.  It seems like a 1080p sensor with larger pixels would be more useful for my particular applications.

My understanding is that to make this useful (H.264 encode), we would need to use the ducati engine, which requires NDA with TI?  Maybe that's not the case if we can do without the source code?  Is anyone educated on this issue?

Just bringing this thread back up again because I'm suddenly interested in
cameras for the Duovero. The Raspberry Pi has a camera based on an
Omnivision OV5647. They connect via their CSi connector, which looks to have
the same type of connections as the MIPI camera connections on the DuoVero
(not sure what the CSi pinout is to be honest).

Perhaps their camera can be used with an adapter. Where problems may arise
is drivers. The Pi has some sort of direct link with their GPU and all the
drivers are binary only. Plus the OV5647 datasheet isn't "public". I put
that in quotes because the first hit on google for "ov5647 datasheet" is the

Not sure if it's reasonable to go this direction but it would be very useful
to have a connected camera where you can change its parameters
programmatically - exposure, white level balance etc.
