Default taking photos via PC?

Hi! I'm looking for an app to take photos (not video) using PC - I mean to control the android camera from my computer, but I don't want to record video - only want to take pictures. Has anyone heard of something like that?

There is an Eye-Fi card. It downloads instantly so you can see pix. Using that and a remote shutter might work.

DSLRs have a shutter remote - usually a cord.

Default no DSLR

Thanks for the reply, but... I don't have a DSLR camera

I managed to test several apps (f.e. Camera Remote AdFree, Remote camera shoot), but none seems to work (crushes). Another thing is most of them use bluetooth instead of wifi.

There are apps like IP-camera, which can stream video, but this is not what I need. I just want to shoot photo without touching the phone (I don't mean time lapses)

You didn't say what camera, but just saw this. My Bridge camera will run CHDK. Camera app that also lets you shoot RAW.
