Question about Logitech QuickCam Fusion Webcam

3 Answers

Blurry and dark picture

My Logitech Fusion worked perfectly with good light, color and picture resolution. Recently, I had to replace my monitor, and now I only get low resolution and very dark picture. Other than buying a new monitor, I made no changes to the cam or settings, so I'm stumped. My system is Win XP and I use MSN as well as other flashplayer 9 based video chatrooms.

    hmm..well..that is most assuredly a driver compatibility issue..i recommend going to www.logitech.com and simply re installing the drivers..can not hurt..

The overall picture quality with the new monitor is awsome. It only the little window generated by the webcam that I saw a sudden drop in quality. I'll try re-installing the cam drivers and also look at whatever it is on that disk that came with the new monitor. I thought as long as the overall picture was good, there was no need to tweek with the monitor settings....

Here's a thought.... When I got the new monitor, all I did was plug it onto the cords that were left where the old one was. I went from a Viewsonic to a Samsung. There was a driver disk of some sort come with the new monitor, but I didnt think it was important. Is there any reason to belive that failure to install whatever is on that disk could be responsible for the sudden drop in my cam's performance?

Is the issue occuring only with the webcam, or is the picture quality of the new monitor bad in general? I would suggest checking the monitor properties via control panel. You can also try reinstalling the webcam drivers. Try that first and let me know how it goes..

The resolution is very dark and not clear


You should first try improving the lighting on your face, and be sure to avoid all light from behind you (close a curtain if necessary). Good lighting improves both color and resolution. The article How To Improve Your Webcam Video Quality provides lots of other free tips.

QuickCam fusion webcam doesn't take pics of a higer resolution than 960x720


Normal 0 Try disconnecting the Camera from the USB port and reinstall the CD or Downloaded software program. When the program asks you to connect the camera to the USB port, do so and it should work.
Hope this helps. Bud

Hi,

Many factors can affect the image quality of your pictures. If you are experiencing blurry images, please try adjusting the focus ring located around the lens.

This will allow you to focus the camera image on objects at different distances.

Also, make sure there is good lighting. Improving the lighting conditions can improve the image quality considerably.

Connection Issues:

If the image quality is poor while transmitting video over the Internet using video enabled programs such as MSN Messenger, Yahoo! or AOL Instant Messenger, your connection speed to the Internet directly affects the image quality of the transmitted video.

Corporate LAN, DSL/cable modem connections will result in the best image quality experience, while dial-up connections may result in choppy and overall poor quality because of the slower connection speed.

Even broadband connections such as DSL/cable modem may experience choppy video at times because of Internet traffic or slow upload speeds.

If the image appears clearly in the camera software, most likely your Internet connection may be responsible for the poor image quality in your video program.

Changing Display Adapter Settings:

If you are still experiencing a distorted, fuzzy or grainy image, you may need to change the settings for your display adapter.

For optimal image quality, please make sure the video display adapter is set to display at least 16-bit high color or higher.

To change the color palette please perform the following steps:

Click on "Start," "Settings," and "Control Panel."

Double-click on the Display icon.

Click on the tab labeled Settings.

In the dialog box labeled Color Palette, verify the video mode is set to 16-bit (high color) or 24-bit (true color).

Also, check with the manufacturer of the video card for updated video drivers.

Low Light Boost:

If you cannot do anything to improve the lighting situation, some Logitech video cameras have an option for "Low Light Boost."

If there is an option for "Low Light Boost," try enabling the "Low Light Boost" in the QuickCam software.

To do this:

Open the QuickCam software.

At the bottom right hand corner of the camera image box, click on the arrow next to the QuickCam icon.

Choose "Advanced Camera Settings".

Under the Image Enhancement box, place a check mark in the "Low Light Boost" option.

If that does not improve the image quality, try adjusting the other image settings, such as contrast, saturation brightness, gain and white balance.

Click OK when your are done.

Last, make sure that you ae using the latest drivers.

You can upodate them from here.
