    You should start by saing what you want to do next once you somehow connect the camera to it. Atmega will probably not be too good a choice, the only realistic thing that I think it is able to do would be some simple shutter control based on lighting conditions, but even that might be a stretch.

    you'll probably be looking at a USB host that will port packets off to a more capable processor, or stuff data into a file at some very limited rate.

    Atmega may be capable of doing 1mbps throughput on uart, without any complex data manipulation. If the camera is 640*480, then that leads to maximally ~3fps just from that. And that is straight through, it has nowhere near enough ram to hold a frame, or enough time to use external ram.
