i used this code to get depth image but i don't knew what's missing i got just a gray window :

#! /usr/bin/env python
import cv2
import numpy as np
cap = cv2.VideoCapture(1)

if (cap.isOpened() == False):
    print("Unable to read camera feed")

frame_width = int(cap.get(3))
frame_height = int(cap.get(4))
out = cv2.VideoWriter('outpy.avi', cv2.VideoWriter_fourcc('M', 'J', 'P', 'G'), 10, (frame_width, frame_height))

while (True):
    ret, frame =
    vidL = frame[:, 0:1280] # left camera
    vidR = frame[:, 1280:2560] # right camera

     vL=cv2.cvtColor(vidL, cv2.COLOR_BGR2GRAY)
     vR=cv2.cvtColor(vidR, cv2.COLOR_BGR2GRAY)

     cv2.imshow('frame', frame)
     stereo = cv2.StereoBM_create(numDisparities=16, blockSize=15)
     disparity = stereo.compute(vR,vL)
     if cv2.waitKey(1) & 0xFF == ord('q'):


# Closes all the frames

You might want Zed to do the computing for you, and supply the depth image. It will figure the disparity itself. /zed/depth/depth_registered Are you using zed-ros-wrapper?
