Camera interfacing with Arduino

Hi all,
Please can any one tell me how can I connect a digital camera ( sony cyber shot which I have with me now ) to a robot made with Arduino ?
and how can I take snaps with it frequently ?
If possible please do share some useful links that show connections and working modal of such a robot .

Thanks & Regards,

How keen are you on opening up the camera and soldering to its internals?

What MODEL of Sony Cyber-Shot camera? Does it have a wired or infrared remote control?

I have camera with usb cable , it does not support infrared communication.
Can you please tell me how to execute a sample program for Arduino ? which tool I suppose to use?
can you please send me a direct download link for an IDE ?
