So I've wrapped my python node in a class, and I've been trying to approximate sync two messages at once (one being Image and another custom message ofMsg that consists of two Float32s) as below:

Class Node:
    def __init__(self):
        self.image_sub = rospy.Subscriber("/usb_cam/image_raw", Image)
        self.opticalflow_sub = rospy.Subscriber("/opticalflow", ofMsg)
        self.ts = message_filters.ApproximateTimeSynchronizer([self.image_sub, self.opticalflow_sub], 10, 0.1, allow_headerless=True)

    def callback(self, image, custom_message):

    def main(self):
        while not rospy.is_shutdown():

However, I get: AttributeError: 'Subscriber' object has no attribute 'registerCallback'

I've been looking at other questions regarding message_filters in python with approximate time synchronizes, and they seem to have implemented things similarly (albeit outside of a class) and I can't really see where I might have gone wrong. My package.xml seems to check out as well, catkin_make works just fine.

Any suggestions?

(I'm using Ubuntu 16.04 on kinetic using python2.7)

message filters has its own subscriber method so you should change it so that you are calling message_filters.Subscriber instead of rospy.Subscriber. I made this same mistake.

Change your subscription to following and it should work.

self.image_sub = message_filters.Subscriber("/usb_cam/image_raw", Image)
self.opticalflow_sub = message_filters.Subscriber("/opticalflow", ofMsg)
