    hi,

    i'm developing a C# application for my customer. I would like this app to be
    able to capture photo using the microsoft's lifecam hd-5000 webcam. to do
    this, i will need the SDK, SDK documentation and possibly some sample
    sourcecode.

    where can i get to donwload these docs?

    Thanks.

    Looking down the results page, I found this:
    http://www.microsoft.com/hardware/download/download.aspx?category=ICE

    I've worked with sdks for Panasonic and Axis IPcams for security
    systems, and I think you've got a poor choice of cam to code for with
    this one. Good luck.

    thanks former poster... :D
    maybe i should try with a new camera or find some 3rd party webcam class
    library. you said that you've once developed software with cams, did you use
    its own proprietary sdk or some other 3rd party class?

    pleae advise.

    Hi mrzoab!

    I used their own SDK (not all of them are proprietary, some are open
    source) and I never developed software with them, all the work I did was
    for these cams being accessed/viewed/controlled remotely from a secure
    website using their http command sets. Most of them use C or C based
    libraries in their sdks. But my work was also exclusively with IP cams,
    not USB cams. I tried to find an sdk published for the Microsoft cam
    you listed and I could not. Most cams are inexpensive, but it would be
    my suggestion if possible to choose a cam for your project with a decent
    sdk and support for it if possible. Good luck.
