Question about Logitech QuickCam Pro 9000 Web Cam

2 Answers

Fuzzy image quality

When I look at my camera image on my monitor, it is relatively crisp. However, when it's transmitted through Skype or several other IM programs, the recipient sees a slightly fuzzy image. On Skype, the image I receive from other cameras can run from sharp to fuzzy.

I've tried two different QuickCam Pro 9000 cameras and both yield the same results.

Has anyone else experienced this problem and knows how to correct it?.

Thanks for your support.

This has nothing to do with your cam. Its a result of bandwidth and transmit speed. Nothing you can do except get a faster connection.

Cam loses focus on Skype


I have the same exact issue - however, it appeared. In order to understand whether it is the driver/os issue I moved my camera to a different computer - from Windows desktop to Mac laptop. And the issue still PERSISTS. I did not have the same problem in the past few months where I used the exact same setup and the same camera. Thus, it can be that the camera went bad (unlikely) or a Skype issue (likely). I think it might be related to the peer connection re-evaluation that happens in the "~30 sec" interval

I have a Mac powerbook G4, and am trying to use skype with a creative notebook web cam. Skype does not recognise any camera in my skype video preferences. Any ideas?


Have you been able to work with your creative notebook web cam in any other function on your Mac
Powerbook G4? Probably not. PC cameras are not usually interchangeable with Mac Cameras for
what should be obvious reasons of platform, chipset, OS and IO diversity.

Logitec quickcam problems


Seems not a problem of your camera as the image it records of you is transmitted clearly to the folks you call. Maybe those people should get the same camera you use.

Or it their/your internet connection upload/download speed

Or it is skype - i use skype, but some of my friends move to MSN as they say it supports better quality experience of video chats

QuickCam Express, blurry, snowy picture...sometimes the picture is totally shaded red


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.

Blury Pictures


My Logitech Quickcam for notebooks Deluxe webcam was blurry.

I spent 3 hours surfing the net looking for the answer, only to find a load of vague and technical responses about OS's and other ****. I fiddled about with the focus ring around the lens on my cam, which wouldn't move, so i figured i had an inferior version that had some sort of in-built auto-focus.

Eventually i lost my rag with the poor quality of information i was finding on this issue.

I went downstairs, got my pliers out of my tool bag, and wrenched the lens ring.

It moved.

Camera focused.

Job done.

Voila, no techy **** required.
