anyone know if this camera sensor:

could be made to work with arduino or miditron and jitter?

or

…are there similar small/inexpensive camera sensors that could work?

This is not really a "sensor" per se, but a small camera. As noted on
the website, there is no documentation for the device, so I personally
wouldn’t recommend it unless you have experience dealing with similar
components. You would probably need to program your own microcontroller
device to work with this. Check out the forum link provided on the
product page and you’ll see what I mean. For the amount of time, and
list of components you would need to get this functioning, you’re better
off using a standard webcam.

Cheers,

you cant do much with just this 20$ bit. you need a driver cirucit to push
the data of the sensor into a computer readable form.
check the threads there for diy solutions.
i dont nkow your needs but better buy a cheap vga camera or if you need
direct input to a microcontroller. try
