I know this question has been asked before, but i was wondering if with the current version of OpenCV (release 2.4) has changed anything.

Should i prefer the C++ or Python interface? Are there any big differences between them? Can you easily translate opencv code from one language to the other? And finally, can i use this book (amazon->Learning OpenCV) to get started anyway or are there any better ones?

Thank you.

I'll suggest C++ since that is native to OpenCV. The Learning OpenCV book is dated but has good information. It badly needs a revision. I think the tutorials do a good job in explaining some of the concepts.

Thank you. A new version of the book should come out soon ( but since its pubblication has been delayed several times now and i'm in a hurry, i think i'll just read the old one and take a look to the tutorials, as you kindly suggested.

I would advocate using whatever language you are most comfortable with. I'm partial to Python because it takes care of a lot of the details for you. Library calls will be the same speed.
