The Windows Phone 7 Developer HUB is in Europe! So I have touched a Prototype: Nice device :-)
Microsoft will NOT allow direct camera access in the first version. They have a short list for this version and this is not on it. They are not even sure it will be on the second release: "the roadmap is not yet final, so contact your Microsoft person
to get this on the list with a higher priority"
You can hook to some camera events (picture taken) to process the picture / movie in your own app, but it will not be able to connect the camera from within your own app.
An other thing: WP7 will support only SL3.
