Is there any package that will allow me to acquire images from the Prosilica camera using Mathematica?

the camera has an available SDK alliedvisiontec.com/us/products/software/vimba-sdk.html you might be able to build package in C++ that MMA can 'talk' to. That said, I expect the camera will save images in standard video/image formats that MMA should be able to handle. –  PlaysDice Nov 13 '13 at 3:19
..MMA can talk to C/C++ programs via Mathlink (see MMA docs). –  PlaysDice Nov 13 '13 at 3:25
@PlaysDice Thank you so much! –  phdstudent Nov 13 '13 at 3:57
@PlaysDice, I do not uderstand why the people unvoted my question. I think it is an important question. –  phdstudent Nov 13 '13 at 3:59
You could have e.g. included the link to the camera docs and specified in a more detailed way what you want to do and what you already tried. As it is, the question shows no effort at all on your side. This is your 10th question, and you already got a lot of patient hints and tips on how to post good questions. –  Yves Klett Nov 13 '13 at 7:20

I believe the answer is: no. At least, my Google search gave no hint that there is any way to import such images into Mathematica.
