I'd suggest subscribing to this journal:
What kind of capture characteristics do you need? The kind of card will
depend on how you plan to use the data.
Two formats that seem to be popular right now are Firewire (IEEE-1394) and
Camera Link. I suspect you'd have the most luck with 1394, since a single
Linux driver would support many cameras. CL is for high-end cameras with
lots of resolution and high frame rates.
