    It isn't possible, although I can't see why Apple couldn't have given the simulator the ability to use the iSight camera built into the majority of Macs to simulate the camera functionality

    I came across some forums & they said its possible. But u cant view the action on the simulator. for the same it will work on iphone. So, is there a code sample to make it work?

    Can't be done, put it on your phone to test it.

    So why not ask them: we all seem pretty sure you can't do it in the simulator (just like sending email or SMS messages don't work in the simulator).

    I know you guys have pretty much experience than the others. So, now I believe that its not possible with simulator. Will it work with iphone? If yes, can some one provide me guidance? Please!

    Will what work? Using the camera? Yes, you can use it using the normal API as covered in the developer documentation. I suggest you go read it....

    Thanks for the inputs & it worked.

    This is what i used:

    UIImagePickerController *picker = [[[UIImagePickerController alloc] init] autorelease];
    [picker setDelegate:self];
    [picker setSourceType:UIImagePickerControllerSourceTypePhotoLibrary];
    [self.navigationController presentModalViewController:picker animated:YES];
