Hey all,

I am giving some images as input to findChessboardCorners but it fails to detect the corners. I believe the calibration images are not very challenging for automatic corner extractions. Here are two sample images:

Any ideas why findChessboardCorners is failing? Are the squares too small? Thanks, Paul

p.s. I have verified that the function works with other images. I am using opencv 243

I just found out that calling findChessboardCorners with these flags, seems to be working for all images:

found = findChessboardCorners( view, s.boardSize, pointBuf, CV_CALIB_CB_ADAPTIVE_THRESH | CV_CALIB_CB_FILTER_QUADS);

Hi, is it in c++ or python? I'm using python and I'm unable to detect any points at all.
