Yep, handle via I2C, no problem. But what are you going to do with the

I2C is a bus. You don't have to have a "unused" one, you can share the 
existing system-wide I2C bus.
But we don't have *any* sufficient number of GPIO spare on the CPU that you 
might use, not to mention there's a camera-interface that's dual-used for 
other things on FR. So no way to get the actual picture data to video-ram 
realtime for a viewfinder etc.

Suggest: use USB
