I2C is fairly low bandwidth. It's likely the camera uses I2C for control, but not video data.
A raspberry pi would work with a standard usb webcam, though.

I'm down for one as well. Has anybody got experience with I2C
communications? I want to hook up a camera to my pi, (actually 2
cameras, 2 pi's) and it still a bit fuzzy to me. The camera's are
OV7670DS which have I2C. Linux has drivers for this camera, the pi has
I2C, I'm just not sure how to explain to the driver that the camera is
on I2C and not hardwired in or something.
