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.

Thanks for reply.
Well, ultimately I would like to process in real time. Actually, at this point, if I could just get the camera stream from the camera (as h.264) over the network to my client, that would be great. Although, I do need to decompress it on that end. I'm guessing I can do that? Would like to load as DLL or .bundle (win or mac) or pull from a client that can hand me uncompressed frames.
(I take it that the custom is to reply at the bottom, rather than top of emails?)
