hi,

i've got a digital camera connected via usb or firewire.
and i want to write a c++ program that tells the camera to take a photo
and also reads out that photo.

is that possible?
how can it be implemented?

Yes, but not entirely with ISO C++ (the only form discussed
here).

No matter the language you use, you'll need an API
application programming interface) with hardware-specific
functions you can call). This is typically provided by
the manufacturer of the camera, e.g. via a 'device driver'.

Consult support resources for your camera, and/or your
operating system.

We can help with the standard C++ parts here. However,
the camera interface part is not topical here, nor are
any image rendering issues.

Look to see if your camera manufacturer has a web site
with info about this, and/or try a google search, being
as specific as you can with the search terms.

HTH,
-Mike
