I have been working on a project of mine for a couple of weeks and know that I am almost done I have came to the cross-roads of deciding were to get my camera feed from. Preferable I would like to use a fuji xp camera I have laying around but I can't find any real documentation for getting a video feed from anything besides a IP webcam. I have been reading up on camera index's but I can't seem to find anything. I am assuming because of the fact that I have a moderately new camera that is will work with opencv. So I was wondering if there was any documentation on usb based video input working with opencv.

Some speacifics.

Operating system: Ubuntu 14.04

OpenCV 2.4.9

Camera: Fuji XP
