[ros-users] Kinect as normal stereo cam?

With the auto-adjustments enabled the cameras performed poorly outside
because bright glare would cause the images to desaturate. With the
automatic settings disabled I noticed some flickering in the images, but
they otherwise looked consistent. I would not be concerned about the
flickering because it was likely caused by a noisy power source and not
anything intrinsic to the cameras.
If you decide to use PS3 Eye cameras as a stereo pair, you might want to
take a look at the PS3-specific camera driver that I wrote . It only
works with the PS3 Eye and is not as well documented as uvc_cam, but it gave
me much better synchronization results as of several months ago (however,
this may no longer be true). Also, the "Synchronization" section in this
report  on my website has a few pictures of what a properly synchronized
pair of cameras looks like.
