Hi,

I'm considering buying a couple of the great USB Colour CMOS OEM cameras but have yet to read of a success story on Linux and so am looking at other imaging products that more expressly support the platform.

Has anyone managed to achieve capture over USB as a standard V4L device?

Secondly, we will primarily be using Intel's OpenCV for capture and stream processing. Has anyone had luck with OpenCV and an Imaging Source camera?

Lastly, the IC SDK seems to only support Windows. Is there any skeleton code out there that I can look at that targets Linux?

Cheers,
