Spent way too many hours fighting with two different Flea3 cameras from Point Grey lately. All the software is hidden behind a login page, and they'll spam you if you sign up. Lots of different obscure and unhelpful error messages, and one of the cameras bricked when I tried a firmware upgrade.
It's not too much to ask for a machine vision camera that:
- Works with linux
- Has Open Source software that I can "apt-get install"
Suggestions for alternatives welcome.
