How to get support for Ximea camera?

I read this

and draw the conclusion that I need to compile opencv with ximea support.

This works fine, the camera works in c++. However, it's not working in python even though everything else in the python bindings works fine.

I guess the SimpleCV support for Ximea is via the opencv pythonbindings?

No idea what I need to change to get this to work. Any help appreciated.

copied wrong dll's (the ones included in the opencv download instead of those I created)

This is correct. We have not wrote direct drivers for XIMEA, only Allied Vision Cameras have we wrote ctype bindings to talk to the C/C++ drivers. We need to do this for XIMEA, at the moment we are using the XIMEA cameras. It sounds like you are on windows, which I have not tested our bindings with, so no gurantee's but on linux I have had it working with the XIMEA CURRERA and the MU9PC_BH models. I have not tested the xiQ (USB 3) models yet either.

If you got this working please let me know. I need to update the README as I would like to get as much support for industrial cameras as possible.
