DVI or VGA/RGB capture on a Rapberry Pi

I need some help here .. I want to connect a Fujifilm EXP-2500 to a raspberry Pi, in order to save pictures taken with the EXP-2500 on a hard-drive.

In this topic I would like to know which solutions I have to save the pictures, coming through a VGA or a DVI port from the EXP-2500, in the Raspberry Pi. The easiest solution is the following :  An Epiphan© VGA2USB frame grabber. But this device has too many features towards the use that would be made of it : only take a few images each hour (maybe 10!). Do I have any other (and cheaper?) solution to "digitalize" the VGA/RGB- or DVI signal ?

Thanks in advance

Hi, thanks already for your help !

The ebay solution isn't what I want, because I may need serveral pieces.

It's a Raspbery Pi Model B.

The HDMI input video capture module would have been perfect, as I nedd the Pi to save images coming through VGA/DVI from the EXP-2500 to the PI.

But if I understand well, the project didn't start ?

Yup sorry!

Thanks for these infos, it will probably be useful to me for an other project (raspberry pi webcam), but for this project, the thing is that I would have needed the hdmi input device, sorry if I expressed myself not clearly ...

I may have misunderstood the capabilities of the camera, but (in order to be certain) it can't digitalize a DVI, or VGA, or HDMI input ?

Thanks
