I'm writing a face recognition application in Visual C++. Part of my task will involve taking an image from my digital camera as input to my pattern recognition algorithm. I am using a Kodak EZ 200. Is it possible to write a program in C which can make system calls to the camera's functions? I read somewhere that it is possible to write C code which can access a CCD Camera library. I really don't know how to go about this one. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Cheers,
Bullseye.

As long as you can make a pointer to it it can be done.
If you figure this one out let me know please (ivalmianski@yahoo.com)

ehh, a pointer isn't gonna do much for ya d00d. whatever calls u make are going to eventually map to a device driver, so here is a place to start:
