I need them to work with my app. Basically, I need to get frames as high-res and fast as possible, and these cameras can deliver the speed. Now I need to get at those frames to process them myself (I don't want to just pass the stream along).

you want to process in real time? Otherwise you can first save the 
stream and then process it.

If you want in real time, you can add filters in ffmpeg.
