Naw, it's just more cameras. Many MS have cameras aside from the head
assembly, the head just provides a paralell to human senory range, in the
process becoming a good mount for advanced MS sensors. On the other hand, a
camera can be built anywhere on an MS (particularly in the case of Linear
Seats), and it would hardly be revolutionary to mount a camera in the
Wing's shield for in-flight vision (the shield/nose probably houses radar,
as well). There have even been several Jion designs with multiple
"mono-eyes" distributed throughout the frame.
