firewire cameras crashing every opencv project


I'm trying to detect objects with a firewire camera but everything crashes because the CPU gets too high. I tried simple object detection and camera calibration and both dont work with the firewire cameras. With normal webcams everything works fine.

Any suggestions to solve my problem?

I'm using Ubuntu with Eclipse (C++). The Camera: ImagingSource DMK 21F04 (monochrome).

I assume the problem is caused by one of the following things: 1) monochrome cameras cannot be processed 2) FPS too high

I would be very thankful for every advice I get.
