PTPCam LabVIEW Toolkit
A LabVIEW still camera drivers that based on PTP (picture transfer protocol).
A LabVIEW still camera drivers that based on PTP (picture transfer protocol). PTP
is the new standard for still imaging devices such as still camera and scanner
that communicate over USB or IEEE1394/firewire bus. Camera vendors do not need to
provide special drivers for PTP compliance cameras, it's being widely supported by
many brand names such as Kodak, HP, Sony, Canon, Nikon etc. Although PTP is OS
independant, PTPCam LabVIEW toolkit only works for windows version. (WinXP or
higher). This toolkit can be used together with IVision LabVIEW toolkit or other
image processing toolkit for further image processing and display. If user is
looking for functions for video camera instead of still camera, they should look
IVision LabVIEW toolkit
, because there are many functions for video cameras in
Depends on your camera, you have more or less control over your camera remotely
via PC. A good one such as Nikon coolpix 5700, coolpix 8700 provides many camera
settings to be controlled remotely. Camea settings include focus, exposure, zoom,
contrast, image width and height etc. Please read the

Below is a software example written in LabVIEW to show some functions such as snap a picture, transfer all pictures from
camera, delete all pictures in camera, retrieve device name and camera storage information etc.
Note:some HP, Nikon, Canon and Sony cameras have to be switched to PTP mode as the camera support dual mode: PTP and USB
Mass Storage or PTP and native.
Although no special drivers needed for PTP supporting cameras, but some vendors also provide their own WIA drivers for
WinXP or higher, so maybe you should install the vendor provided WIA drivers to ensure their cameras work better.
Tips: Want to know if your camera supports remote picture capture with PTP transfer? You can test out with "Camera and
Scanner Wizard" that comes with Winxp, if you can take a picture in the wizard application, you should be able to use this
PTPCam LabVIEW toolkit to take a picture from your camera remotely too.
LabVIEW is trade mark of National Instrument.
