Is there a tutorial anywhere that describes clearly the steps necessary to capture an image , using openCV4Android ? I have looked at this S/O post which references this tutorial as an example. In this example it States :

On receiving a new frame, the activity class does not process it in any way, and simply returns it, displaying as:

 public Mat onCameraFrame(CvCameraViewFrame inputFrame) {
      return inputFrame.rgba();

I placed a breakpoint on this which never gets hit, however I imagine that inputFrame.rgba(); is what im looking for. Ie I think that is the image and i need to do processing on a single image not the feed.

I do not wish to write the image , I will do some processing on this image in memory to extract data , that data will be written to a database and the image discarded.

At present I have an application which displays the camera feed. To do this i simply implement CameraBridgeViewBase.CvCameraViewListener2

@Moeptuan please do not post answers here, if you have a question or a comment, thank you.

also, "Can you give me your code" never works here
