Capturing Images From External Camera (WIA) ? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I would like to use an external SLR to capture an image remotely and display it in a PictureBox control. All of the documentation I found for WIA does not work for Visual Basic Express. The manufacturer SDK is only supplied in C and I do not know how to make wrappers to allow me to use it in VB. Can someone please show some sample code to use an external camera (USB)?

  • You camera should show in My Computer.  Use an OpenFileDialog to find the pictures on the camera.

    First things, first.  If it doesn't show in OFD, there is no reason for going farther.
