Abstract: We present first results of a survey being made in a broad-band 6.75 mu m filter using the ISOCAM infrared camera in its parallel mode at similar to 6 '' resolution. So far we have analysed a sky area of similar to 1.375 deg(2) down to a limiting flux of 5 mJy and detected a total of 287 objects. The final survey will cover a sky area of similar to 33 deg(2), most of which will be done in staring mode, to which we have restricted ourselves in the present paper. The final catalogue should reach a typical sensitivity limit of similar to 1 mJy. We estimate that at the detection limit 99% of the objects will have a galactic origin.
