I have been searching for days to find an Http Client in C++ that I can use. I am assisting in a research group involving camera recording based on sensor detection and am responsible for making the interface with the cameras. I have some work that was done before I joined, but it is all in java. I really need something to help get my foot in the door. If I could connect to the camera, login, and download an image, I'd have a good starting point. I'm not sure how the authentication works, but the java implementation used a method addBasicAuthentication (in this class http://www.innovation.ch/java/HTTPClient/api/HTTPClient/AuthorizationInfo.html). If anyone could help me get started with this, I'd really appreciate it.

Well you write a program which uses the library.
Short of suggesting you go up a level and say grab the source code for say 'wget', which will add a lot of stuff not particularly interesting to you, I dunno what to suggest.
There isn't an easy answer …
