Webcam vs camera module on pine64+

i'd like to use my board (pine64+ with 1 gb) for some OpenCV...
I'm planning to capture short videos and analyze them using OpenCV.

What do i get from using the camera module (except the compact size and free usb port..)

I very recently started doing some Computer Vision, DNN and machine learning work on individual Raspberry Pi's and clusters of RPi 3's.

When trying to solve the same question, I learned the on board CSI interface for the camera takes input straight to the GPU. USB cameras go through the CPU.

So even a little lower resolution with direct GPU access - IMO - is better for openCV
