Are you using an auto-focus m4/3 lens? I have about 20 lenses for this camera and only 1 of them is an auto-focus m4/3 lens. I have an adapter so I can use my 4/3 lenses on it in auto-focus mode along with other various mounts (including cctv) that do not support auto-focus. So if you are using a non-auto-focus lens, you will need to manually focus the pictures.
If you are certain it is an auto-focus lens, are you sure you have it set to auto-focus?
What settings do you have your camera set to (aperature mostly is what I'd like to know)? Try adjusting your aperature to be small (to increase your DOF).
Also what lens are you using and what is your focal distance? It could be your lens has a larger or shallower focal distance than what you are trying to achieve (like a macro lens doesn't work that great for landscape photography or a telephoto lens doesn't work great for macro photography).
Last thought: is your lens or sensor dirty? A dirty lens can cause focusing issues if it is REALLY dirty and a dirty sensor can too (sensor is a bigger pain to clean. I strongly recommend taking it to the pros as they scratch really easily). Dirty lenses can be cleaned with a blower and a lint free cloth and rubbing alcohol if those 2 things don't clear it out.
If the camera is plugged in and installed correctly then you should be able to open up a web cam program like skype, gmail or messenger and test out the camera, as well as adjust the camera's settings.
If the camera lens does not have auto focus, see if you can move the camera lens around in both directions. Some cameras have this for manual focusing. If you cannot access the camera lens then it SHOULD have an auto focus feature.
Also, play around with the camera settings (brightness, focus, zoom, sharpness) to find the best combination of setting for your environment.
Older cameras dont have very good resolutions so don't expect a high quality image or frame rate.
1) You try reducing your webcam settings to high or low, to see the best possible settings to enable better quality images. (or)
2)This may sound a bit crazy, but try to rotate the lens (the white part around the lens). Your camera has a manual focus, so you have to twist it until you get a clear picture. I have a similar one, so what I do is I point it at a book and rotate until I can read the book clearly on the monitor. Alternately, you can buy a more expensive camera with auto focus. Hope you understand. 3)Thanks for using fixya..
Most webcams focus either manually or by software The manual focus is a ring around the lens that you can rotate to sharpen the picture. The software settings on the auto focus allow you to zoom in and out to get the best image in relation to the distance of the subject to the webcam
If you go to the front of the webcam, their is the camera surrounded by a dial. Turn the dial until the picture comes in clearly, and when you get it perfect, don't touch it. Just leave it the way it is and your all set. Hope this Helped -CA
