  • It's possible that they wrote their own driver to work with the camera. I honestly don't know APIs they are using.

    NOTE: If I ask for code, please provide something that I can drop directly into a project and run (including XAML), or an actual application project. I'm trying to help a lot of people, so I don't have time to figure out weird snippets with undefined objects and unknown namespaces.

  • Hi FireDance,

    As Matt told, I would suggest you to consult Panasonic dev support for the API related. Thanks for your understanding.

  • Do you know if your Panasonic tablet supports these features?

  • using the code base on the references, the Panasonic will not support. Strange enough , Panasonic has made an app listed in Microsoft marketplace that can do all the features like Zoom In/Out and others. Are they not using the same references as you quoted above? They used their own driver and api?

    Thanks
