I didn't spend any time on designing a mount for it, so I cropped off what I had.
More will be added as they are completed. I think kfmccall was going to come up with some Camera concepts, too? Feel free to post here.

Do our cameras have to be anthropomorphic? I know it makes sense to do that for bots, but maybe our cameras could look more like bulky, primitive cameras (maybe with a diverging lens so that the back end is wider than the front, since they wouldn't have the technology to make a tiny integrated pixel array, they might need to blow up the image with a lens and project it onto a larger pixel array).

EDIT: Also, I never felt the T2 camera-faces were doing anything more than sensing movement. (I don't feel they were taking video and broadcasting a high-resolution movie on some back-office TV screen somewhere.) Therefore, sensing motion wouldn't require a very advanced optical lens/configuration and a small lens works. I still like your idea, though, and will try to crank out something.

Man, I wanted to show you guys some screenshots of the cameras from the intro sequence of Abe's Oddysee. They were kind of ominous in their own special way, they way they rotated on the spot in short spurts and always adjusting their lens at the same time.
Fraps would'nt work for some reason, so I attatched a quick drawing of one... try to imagine more steam punk detail on it... The end has some shutters that can open and close (kind of like a stage light I guess).
