Does zxing support tablet cameras?

Specifically i'm trying to create an application for a Panasonic Toughbook CF-H2 that will activate the camera showing a live preview and read a barcode. Exactly like the Winforms demo of using an attached webcam.

Generally it does. I can't try it with your specific device, but if it is not too exotic it should work.
Do you have any problems with it?

I was able to apply the power of DirectShow.Net to grab bitmaps from the embedded camera and feed those into zxing. Works perfectly with my webcam as well. I'd suggest updating the WinForms demo app to to use DirectShow.Net instead as it seems to support more variety's of cameras. I can make the changes and submit them if you'd like.

Would be nice to see some patches from you.
