I am new to the forums as of today so I may as well join in too.

I work in the entertainment industry for a subsidiary of Kodak. Have been with Kodak for 23 years.

I am a systems engineer working on various digital imaging systems, thrill ride photography and mobile solutions.

My last mobile solution was using a Nikon D70 and the ultra small SONY U series handtop PC. I developed this under VB6 using Microsoft's WIA com object.

I now need to develop a similar package under Pocket PC 2003 aka Windows Mobile. So my challenge is to get Windows Mobile to recognize a PTP compliant camera connected via USB. I need real time camera control and to be able to download images from the camera as they are taken.

I live in Upstate New York, married, three children.

My main hobby is my 1970 GTO Judge which I have recently completed the restoration on.

Computers and Visual Basic...

Welcome here... Just as a note about your project - not all Pocket PC have USB host. Some do, like the Toshiba e800 series, but you need a special connector, accessory from Toshiba. Otherwise good luck with this project, sounds interesting.
