Question getting name of the imageplane to selected camera

is it possible pythonically to get the name of the imageplane node of the selected camera ?
I have managed to code to get the modelPanel name and get its camera
import maya.cmds as cmds
print("Panel in foucs: ",str(p))
cam=str(cmds.modelEditor (p, q=True, camera=True))
print("Camera: ",cam)
print(cmds.pickWalk(direction='down' )[0])

now how can I get the name of imagePlane that is connected to the camera..

Hi Sanj,
As this is a very Maya specific question, I'll move this to the Maya programming forums for you. More pertinent, and more likely to get you visibility from people who have a snippet to offer.

use listConnections and get the things connected to the camera's .imagePlane attribute, i.e.:

listConnections -s 1 -d 0 perspShape.imagePlane;
// Result: imagePlane1 // 
..aut inveniam viam aut faciam..
