Cheaply available Genlockable chip cameras

I'm into 3D and virtual reality, for which the current crop of video goggles/glasses/HMDs are just fine, BUT... I'd like to do 3-d video feedback without spending a fortune to supplement the glasses, ie, 3-d stereoscopic field-sequential interlaced imaging from right and left cameras. I found an outdated circuit (which reminds me, it's at ---, the i.e.VR HomePage option, Reasearch, 3-D Video in Theatr Production bottom of the page, if someone could update the circuit w/ components it would be nice) which requires genlockable cameras, usually an expensive option. I'm under the impression that there are mass-produced chip cameras (Omnivision I think) which have genlock options but I have neither yet found a source to buy in one-offs, nor an available line of webcams to take apart that has the right sensors. Any help would be appreciated, please. Thank you.

Most camera clock generators actually do have a genlock input, but it is grounded on the ones I have looked at. Depending on the model it should be possible to "lift" the genlock pin and add an input. It would be really cool if anyone doing this could report back here on their success. :)
