I have been working with Firewire cameras on my Mac using camera1394 package. Now I decided to switch to Point Grey Flea3 USB3 cameras. I remember a year ago I have read that these cameras support IIDC and that time I was able to capture images from these cameras using libdc1394 (without ROS). Now I am struggling running it with ROS camera1394 package. My questions,
(a) Did somebody use these cameras with libdc1394, without Flycapture (maybe in Linux, better in OSX)?
(b) I cannot find Flea3 GUID, that camera1394 requires. Do USB3 cameras have GUIDs?

We are using Chameleon, has GUID and works, but that is USB2. I had to make an udev rule to add it to plugdev group.

Thanks for reply, I managed to make it run on OSX. There are still some things that I am not happy with, such as delay. Will test everything then write the answer.

I also got a Chameleon Point Gray camera to work in OS X via libdc1394. The problem is that I can't figure out how to set the camera mode for it to give me color in OpenCV.
