        Dim i As Integer

        For i = 0 To AxVideoCap1.GetDeviceCount - 1

            cbovideodevice.Items.Add(AxVideoCap1.GetDeviceName(i))

        Next

        If cbovideodevice.Items.Count > 0 Then

            cbovideodevice.SelectedIndex = 0

        End If

End Sub

Step 8. add the following code in Video Device Combo Box's SelectedIndexChanged event.

        AxVideoCap1.RefreshVideoDevice(cbovideodevice.SelectedIndex)

        AddStillPinVideoFormat()

 

  End Sub

Step 9 . Add AddStillPinVideoFormat() function

 Private Sub AddStillPinVideoFormat()

        Dim i As Integer

        Dim strStillPinName As String

        cbostillpinformat.Items.Clear()

        For i = 0 To AxVideoCap1.StillPinVideoFormats.Count - 1

        If cbostillpinformat.Items.Count > 0 Then

            cbostillpinformat.SelectedIndex = 0

        End If

        AxVideoCap1.Device = cbovideodevice.SelectedIndex

        AxVideoCap1.StillPinVideoFormat = cbostillpinformat.SelectedIndex

        SaveFileDialog1.ShowDialog()

        AxVideoCap1.SnapShotJPEG(SaveFileDialog1.FileName, 99) 

End Sub

Step 12. Now run the project, select the video device,  if your cameras can produce a still image separate from the capture stream, you can select Still Pin Format. Otherwise your cameras does not support Still Image Pin. Still image Pin can produce more higher quality than the images produced by the capture stream.
After you selected Still Pin Format , make sure you click Preview button first, then click the Snapshot button.
