Hi There

I need some help with or sample c++ code (perferably MFC style) to acquire images from a firewire card (Pyro) with a Sony camera. Any help (where to start looking) is appreciated. I have been working with a quickcam and Logitech's SDK for my project and the quality is almost unbearable.

Thanks in advance

I am doing my final project on robotic soccer and I need to recognize the robots and the ball on the field. the easiest way I know of doing this is through colour recognition (although object recognition will be a lot nicer but I am not experienced enough to do that). I have a camera (currently using a quickcam) looking down on the playing field to take the pictures and send the data to my PC (amd800, 512mb, 30gig) and I am currently using the quickcam SDK to put the recieved data in an array (320x240 BGR format) and from there I do whatever I need to do to recognize the robots and the ball. It is quite simple this way but the image quality is not so great and in order for the camera to see a 4'x6' playing field I have to raise it a good 3-4meters or 10-13feet which is rather high. Now I want to know if there is an alternative solution that will also give me the image in an array format so I can do image processing without sweating blood. I hear about frame grabbers but I see none for sales at the local stores. the next best thing is a Firewire Card (Pyro) and a camcorder (way better quality than the quickcam and I think it has a wider view too) and I have the TRV315 Sony camcorder which is compatible with the Pyro card. all I want to know is can I recieve images from the Sony camera and the Pyro firewire card like I can with the Quickcam and it's respective SDK? or is there even better solution that is cheap enough (less than $500) that I can use.
