I tried to use the code given in chapter 11 of the book (for the raspberry pi) and first found it was miss-labeled as chapter 10, and then not only was the "cap.h" header file missing but the code for the first example (i.e. code10-1.cpp - which should be code11-1.cpp) not only doesn't compile but it references the OpenCV VideoCapture interface and not the PiCapture.cpp code. I mean did anyone even look it over. Feel completely ripped off!
I'm a hardcore MATlab user, and one of the few problems faced by people like me is computational time which is why I decided to shift to OpenCV.
I found this book to be extremely handy since a major portion of the book explains the programming with code, pictures and expected areas of failure. The best part is that the author has also provided sections on "Getting comfortable with OpenCV" and "Setting up OpenCV on your system". This makes things a whole easier. Let me tell you, installing OpenCV is a major blockade, and this book explains every single step in an orderly fashion.
Excellent job, Author, you have my thanks.
Even though OpenCV is optimized for Vision and is excruciatingly fast, especially compared to MATLAB, but due to its steep learning curve, there aren't many takers. This book covers most of the common Computer Vision problems, right from blurring Images to segmentation to Stereo Vision, with ample examples and code snippets. It definitely makes one comfortable to start programming with the OpenCV library. Chapter on Raspberry Pi is an added feature, for Raspberry Pi enthusiasts.
I will highly recommend this book for someone looking to get his hands dirty on OpenCV or for broadening the area or even as a quick reference.
