Hello,

I'm searching for any LabView-drivers to use the DFK21F04 Firewire camera with LabView Picture Control Toolkit or Imaq Vision but without NI IEEE1394 drivers.

Is ther anybody who can help?

Hello,

It is rather easy to use the SDK IC Imaging Control (shipped with the camera) together with LabView.
All you have to do is to write a DLL that exports a number of C functions that can be called from LabView.
You need functions for:
- initializing / closing the library IC Imaging Control
- getting a list of available devices
- selecting a device
- getting a list of supported video formats
- setting a video format
- getting / setting properties
- grabbing an image
- getting an image

Inside the DLL, the C functions use IC to implement the functionality. It is more or less a simple mapping from C functions to C++.
An experienced programmer should be able to do the job in 1 to 2 days.
