How to Install OpenCV 3 on Raspbian Jessie

Adrian from the excellent PyImageSearch blog has a great post on how to install the latest version of OpenCV on the Raspbian Jessie operating system for the Raspberry Pi.  OpenCV is a great open source library for image processing algorithms like object and face recognition, but it can be a little tricky to install on a Raspberry Pi.  Check out the post for all the details:

A few weeks ago Raspbian Jessie was released, bringing in a ton of new, great features.

However, the update to Jessie also broke the previous OpenCV + Python install instructions for Raspbian Wheezy:

Since PyImageSearch has become the online destination for learning computer vision + OpenCV on the Raspberry Pi, I decided to write a new tutorial on installing OpenCV 3 with Python bindings on Raspbian Jessie.

As an additional bonus, I’ve also included a video tutorial that you can use to follow along with me as I install OpenCV 3 on my own Raspberry Pi 2 running Raspbian Jessie.
