    U must be wondering why no one answered this. VB itself does not have the functionality to obtain graphics from the camera.

    However, the camera manufacturer might have ActiveX component that allows you to capture the image. Or if the camera is TWAIN compliant, then you can use TWAIN APIs to interact with the camera.

    I, however, do not possess any knowledge on any of the components mentioned above. So you might have to search the web for tutorials on using the TWAIN APIs.

    Good Luck,

    An other way , if you like, is to capture the camera stream witch "Direct Show" from Microsoft. This is in the DirectX SDK. In Version 8.1 it is not implemented for VB, but you can make a C++ .dll for use in VB.
