Hi,

I am trying to make up a photo booth that will take 4 photos at once. It has 4 usb cameras. The idea is you enter a code into a cell in excel and click on a button and it takes photos from all 4 cameras at once, naming them using the code you entered in the cell and the camera name. Eg enter the code 12345 - click the button - and it takes FRONT_12345, LEFT_12345, RIGHT_12345 & BACK_!2345 - saving each as a seperate file.

I have had a good look around and havent really found anything - am thinking there must be a way - even if it could only do one camera at a time and then it switches camera and runs sequentially.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
