  • Hello Pedram,
    I just want to know if IVT's CalibrationApp application works with the canon cameras. Canon cameras don't have video input option as webcameras. So I am just wondering if the calibration can be performed using static digital images of the calibration frame?

    Thanks. Have a nice day.

    Hi,

    yes, that is possible. You have to use CBitmapSequenceCapture as camera module and number the files with a fixed number length, e.g. image00.bmp, image01.bmp, and so on.

    Also there is a line in OpenCVCalibrationAlgorithm.cpp that has the effect that only every 20th frame is accepted: if ((nTotalCount++ % 20) == 0). You'll have to comment this line out.

    Let me know if this worked or if you are experiencing any problems.
