Using the Magickcam gem with rb_webcam built in

require 'magickcam'

capture = Webcam.new
image = capture.grab
image.save 'new_image.jpg'
capture.close

There is no need to instantiate an object from the Magickcam class if all you want is to capture a webcam image. The Magickcam gem includes the latest code from the rb_webcam source code on GitHub whereas the rb_webcam gem (as of 1-Dec-2012) still does not.

Prerequisites

You will need to install imagemagick, and opencv. Here's what I installed apt-get install imagemagick libcv2.3 libcv-dev libopencv-highgui2.3 libopencv-highgui-dev
