Ok see this page I'm on here:

Question - If I go for the easy install, will I lose out on having the libraries that allow me to get my cameras images and get their binary numbers etc? What do I lose out on having specifically?

no fear, as of 2.4.x, the easy (using prebuild libs) way will get you started fine. you can use (almost) all of opencv's functionality.

what you can't do this way, is using CUDA,OPENCL,TBB,IPP optimizations, because those need additional sdk's being present

opencv3 is a slightly different story you can still start like this, you might soon find out, that you need opencv_contrib , in which case you have to build from src anyway.
