cv.GetMat(myIplImage)

Since OpenCV seems to be moving away from IplImages, it would make sense for cv_bridge to do the same. Perhaps that should be ticketed.

cv.GetMat(myIplImage)

Since OpenCV seems to be moving away from IplImages, it would make sense for cv_bridge to do the same. Perhaps that should be ticketed.

Edit by @Pi Robot: it also seems necessary to then convert this to a numpy array for other OpenCV functions like cvtColor to work; so the above would become:

np.array(cv.GetMat(myIplImage), dtype=np.uint8)
