2016-12-08 10:16:19 -0500 asked a question Fisheye: Did I understand distort and undistort?

Hi again,

got the very current version installed now and played a bit with fisheye camera and the cv::fisheye commands.

After calibration, I tried the following:

1) fisheye-distort a point (via "fisheye.distortPoints")

2) fisheye-undistort the result of 1) (via "fisheye.undistortPoints")

3) Have a look at the result and wondering...

I thought that after distort and undistort I would get the original point (of course camera-matrix und distortion coefficients where the same in both methods). Except for the input (0,0) I get different values at the end.

Why do I get different values?

Thanks in advance!

wget download zip-archive from GitHub, then unpack, then cmake to build

Hi at all,

before explaining my problem, I feeling really stupid about asking such an "easy" question, but I searched the Internet for about three hours without any result.

I have a running version of OpenCV 3.1.0 installed on my Raspberry Pi (Linux Raspbian, Python 3) since September this year, used:

cv2.__version__ says 3.1.0

In 2015 there was a bug according to the fisheye-calibration and in April 2016 a fix was officially committed on GitHub:

Now, I want to re-download changed files and rebuild OpenCV to take advantage of the bug-fix (if this is the right way to handle an update). Another question is why I could download a bug-file after there was a fix half a year ago.

As I said, I was seeking for an answer for hours, but "update open cv linux" or "git update rebuild open cv" results in lots of crap.

Thank you all in advance!
