CamTimer is a Windows application that allows timing your webcam - so that it automatically takes a picture e.g. every hour. It was released with its complete source code in 2012. If you're in need for examples of how to use your webcam from C# please check out Classes\WebCamClasses.cs which contains one approach for DirectShow, another for WIA, and a third one using Avicap32.
