At work we need to take pictures for id badges. Instead of having to hold the camera and take the pictures, plug it in and move the file, I was wondering if I would be able to use said camera through my computer as it hangs on a wall/ceiling mount. That way I could simply click "take picture" and have it automatically placed in the folder specified.
