webcam directly to bitmap (no GUI, console application)

P: n/a
G'day,

I'm looking for a way to save a webcam frame image to a bitmap. I don't
want to go via a PictureBox like many examples I've found on the net,
because I will have no forms, or GUI (console app).

The reason I'm looking to do this is so I can take a picture at intervals
and save them to the computer (like time lapse). If at all possible it
would be good if I can print a time stamp on the image too before saving on
the computer. I know this is all easy enough using a PictureBox (there are
many examples of this on the net), but this must all be done in a console
application.

Is this possible? I'm fairy inexperienced with this kind of hardware
manipulation, so any source code would be very appreciated!

Many thanks,
Dazza.
