I have been tasked with writing software to control a couple of Canon digital cameras using the Canon sdk.  

I do not know what Topic or Tags group in Expert-Exchange to pose this question to.

------------------------

I am fluent with Visual Basic and would Visual Basic work or do I need to use/learn C or C++, or what software I need to employ?   I have access to Visual Studio if that helps.

I need to control some camera settings and provide a button on a form where the user clicks and the picture/image is taken and printed.

Need direction, and thanks for the help!

From what the SDK description (http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/consumer/standard_display/sdk_homepage) states


    OS: XP (Home/Professional), Vista (including SP1), 7
    CPU: Pentium 750MHz (1.3GHz for Windows 7) or higher Pentium processor
    Memory: At least 256 MB RAM (when using XP), 512MB (or more with Vista), 1G RAM (when using Win 7)
    Hard Disk: 50MB or more available storage
    Interface: USB 2.0 or IEEE1394 (according to camera)
    Development Applications: Microsoft Visual Studio 6.0, Visual Studio .NET 2003 or later

any languages that are supported by Visual Studio should work. Even if the API was 'C-centric', you should easily be able to use them from VB.
