I have not done any DirectX development before but I want to develop
something to capture a still image from a Logitech WebCam and save to a jpg
I plan to run this on a schedule for a web site upload.

I understand that the technology to use is DirectShow.
Please would someone say if this is feasible in Managed DirectX? and any
tips or pointers to samples woul dbe appreciated.

Thanks in advance
