I don't think there's any specific MagickWand functions to import a webcam image.
I think the best you could hope for is if the webcam comes with its own API to allow a program to capture images and then your program could use MagickConstituteImage to convert the raw image to a MagickWand.

Sorry, my ISP shutdown all personal webspace so my MagickWand Examples in C is offline.
See my message in this topic for a link to a zip of all the files.
