Re: Quick capturing frames
First of all, start the camera only. Do not call stopLive(). The startLive is the time consuming call.
Secondly: snapImages() will snap the next complete frame. That means, a frame currently in delivery will be dropped. Therefore, you can achieve half frame rate with this only.
What do you want to do with the frames? Maybe the "callback" sample shows, what you need. In case you want to handle each incoming frame automatically, you need to change the snapmode in this sample to false. Then snapImages is no longer needed and CListener::frameReady will be called for every incoming frame automatically.
