 Bigger Bigger  Smaller Smaller  Reset Reset

I'm looking for an arduino/shield combo capable of at least 10 ADC channels. The Mega has 16, but is a bit expensive, and includes a lot of other features I don't need. Is there a cheaper arduino with just as many ADC pins, or some shield that provides more ADC pins?

Look at ADC chips with an I2C interface.
