Using XIMEA cameras and OpenCV with Python

I recently found a decent camera for my behavior experiments. It was very important for me, that the camera supports LabVIEW and Python, ideally via OpenCV. Another important feature was the usage of USB 3 instead of Firewire or GigE, because of ease of use and availability in standart computers. At the same time, OpenCV is a powerful tool to do comprehensive image processing and analysis. And, even more important, it is available thorugh a Python interface, enabling me to develop fast, efficient and cost-effective tools to investigate zebrafish behavior. Here I am describing how to use Python, OpenCV and the XIMEA cam together.
