Hello, I've been browsing the source code for this project.  It is very interesting.  I've found Microsoft's support for working with cameras to be very lacking in .Net.  Thanks for sharing the code.

I am trying to take a picture from my application.  You can actually get more background here.  My question is have you had any success doing this with any type of camera?  I am using a Canon EOS 50D.  WIA and WPD seem to report it as not capable of taking pictures.  My only guess is that Canon's SDK must be doing something special involving extensions to the PTP or MTP standard.

I have never use PortableDeviceLib with camera, only with mp3.

I think you should start by extracting the devices capabilities (See DeviceCapabilities of the PortableDeviceLib.PortableDevice class).

Next stage will be to invoke command but unfortunately this isn't implemented.

If you are interested to write this feature you're welcome :)
