This software project demonstrates how to control/operate an onboard camera programmatically (via DirectShow rather than Psion Teklogix’s ICS SDK).
Specifically, this project generates a native windows control that can be included into any windows project. The control drives the camera, and allows users to put the camera into ‘preview’ mode, followed by taking a still photo.
Control over the camera settings (trigger control, resolution, flash on/off) is available by user interaction (tapping on the control) or by API.

Bear in mind that this demo software illustrates how to control the built-in Camera - a.k.a. ALPS - of our IKON Windows Mobile 6.x product range.
Yes I've tried CameraCtrlPtxNet.dll in the past, but Preview refresh with all presets is very very slow.
Than I decided to use DirectShowNETCF that is perfect, fast and simple to program, but only flashon & flashoff commands doesn't work.
Please be careful using this control on the EP10. On Pre V2.0.x Revisions the control works as-is.
If using V2.0.x and you choose the defailt resolution, a known DirectShow bug (that will be fixed) will cause the COntrol and the App to Lockup. Choose "Very High" and if the control works, than you will need to update the Add-On .CAB for your firmware. Or update to the Latest Firmware Version. -sean
