[ros-users] call for testing: camera1394 in C-turtle

Does it happen with other USB cameras? For example, a UVC compatible webcam
(big list of supported devices here: http://www.ideasonboard.org/uvc/ )?

Perhaps the problem is just the IIDC over USB driver on ARM? Do you get
similar errors on an x86 PC?
