Well typically the cameras you have purchased should have their own LEDs installed in the front where the lens is. These smaller cameras with 12 to 38 LEDs are good for a range of only 10 to 30 feet of illumination. Anything beyond that it will not pick up. Check the specs of your cameras, make sure the cameras installed are not too high and also make sure that the distance of what you want to look at is within the cameras LEDs specs. If you do not want to change anything as far as location and height, I recommend getting a LED Illuminator. Unfortunately they usually only run on 110vac, and are somewhat expensive, and have to be mounted above the cameras to get the most of the illumination. This could be pricey because a certified technician should be the only one to install it due to codes and regulations.

My phillips SPZ3000 cam is very dark at nite with the light on

Change to another camera. The problem is in your cameras ccd chip. The sensibility of that chip in your camera is not strange enough to sens the light and create the picture.
I hope you have a normal light source not a night lamp or a torch or so...

Use AmCap to view your webcam without using YM. You can download the software at this site: .

You cannot use AmCap and YM at the same time , so exit AMCap if you will use your webcam with Yahoo.

Good luck and have a nice day!
