Does anyone know how to write code to control a digital camera (take a picture) from a java application? Can code be written to "see" what the camera sees in the Java app and then actually snap the camera. I know there are TWAIN packages to retrieve pictures from a camera's memory. I actually want to snap the picture from the Java app. Does anyone know how to do this? Any tips or suggestions will be helpful...Thanks a lot!!!

Q: Can I capture audio and video with JMF 2.1.1?

Yes. JMF 2.1.1 provides capture functionality so you can capture from a recorded or live media source. On Solaris, SunVideo and SunVideo Plus cards are supported. On Windows, most video capture devices that have a VFW driver are supported. For a list of tested video capture devices, check out:
