Here is an example. It took a while to get my second cam working with this new laptop to test it out. For some reason I couldn't make this a code snippet, but all well, here is just the pic.

Edit: I used one loop here for simplicity, you could have them in totally separate loops if needed. You could also call them sequentially.

just in case you don't need vision development module. then you can see this

i have used this at one of our clients for capturing images from 4 cameras and we found it excellent

also if you are using NI IMAQ USB then version does matter, previous versions of it does not support capturing from two cameras if they have identical name(i.e. two cameras of exactly same brand&model)
