Docking station - custom requirement

by Reg IT / September 13, 2008 7:42 PM PDT

I would like to take a picture, dock the camera and have the picture copied to a target folder (always the same folder) and deleted from the camera. This should be silent (no dialog boxes or user interface). Anybody got an idea which camera / dock I should try?

The Kodaks do a really good job of doing this. You can set up the preferences before starting up and then all you have to do is put the camera on the docking station and push one button. That's one of the major reasons why I had my mother buy a Kodak.

Thanks Kalel33,
I have read the params in the easyshare SW and agree that it can do the job. I will buy and try.

But I do know such a system. It was developed for an company and cost just over 20 million bucks. How tight is that requirement? Do you have staffers that can write this software or are you absolutely sure its worth the millions?
