The winner of the first part of the PureView Imaging Competition 2012Q2 is daliusd, for his articles Real-time edge detection in camera viewport and MeeGo Camera VideoSurface manipulation.
The articles are exceptional - "MeeGo Camera VideoSurface manipulation" shows how to access and process camera frames, while "Real-time edge detection in camera viewport" provides the example of processing the frames using an edge detection algorithm. This second article is particularly interesting because the algorithm must be very fast for real-time processing, and it shows some tricks and tips which can help other developers optimise their own code.
We'll be selecting the winner of the next segment in about a week and a half, and the winner of the final segment and grand prize in just under a month. Even without daliusd in the running for the next segments there are some pretty tough competitors. If you think you've got what it takes there is still plenty of time to compete!
Please join me in congratulating daliusd for his win.
