Anything is possible.  You have to identify what kind of output the data is in and where it is output to.  Then you have to figure a way to decode it, store it and the present it in the form of something that you can show on a computer.

If you can figure which pins are the output and what the data really is, then the rest will seem a snap.

Taking it out of the camera takes it away from all of it's processor parts and the software that converts it to a usable file.

i doubt that you can use it like a regular camera, you will need some sort of chip to convert the data the camera sends into composite video.

You have to identify the camera and look up data sheets or/and reverse engineer.
