Nikon Camera Control

Hi Experts,
I am trying to develop a program for controlling a Nikon camera (D90) from a windows XP host connected using a USB cable. My target is to see live view and capture from my PC. Nikon provides a driver and sample code which is CUI. The sample program can capture image but does not show live view. I am looking for help if any body has developed a similar program and is ready to share the code with me.

Thanks...

The operations such as taking picture, adjusting zoom, ISO, white balance, etc can be executed using WIA. However for live view i.e. what we see on the LCD of the camera before taking a picture has to be writen using the SDK from Nikon. Any other ways of achiving this objective?

Thankx

Connect further...control easier

With the ATEN CE624, you can now enjoy a high-quality visual experience powered by HDBaseT technology and the convenience of a single Cat6 cable to transmit uncompressed video with zero latency and multi-streaming for dual-view applications where remote access is required.
