USB Digital Camera (or webcam) in MS Access

I need to create an MS Access database where I can capture a live image from a digital camera or maybe a webcam, connected via USB.

I need to store the image as a file on the drive and store the file path and name in the mdb.

This will be on a newer model laptop running Vista, or maybe Windows 2000.

I found a few threads on EE, but most of them are pretty old.

Any recommendations on a good, currently supported OCX tool (free or paid) for doing this?

So, it looks like the only requirement is to have a camera that supports TWAIN, is that right?

Do you know if that's common in digital cameras and webcams?
