Picture is clear but frame is too small

I just purchased the camera today.How could I get a wide angle look out of the camera. Standing about 2 feet away I am only able to barely see all my face.

Please advise if us anything I could do to get a wider look of me with this camera.

Re: Picture is clear but frame is too small

It could be the software on your computer which is digialling zooming the image.  Check the program you are using to make sure it is zoomed out.

How do i know what webcam to get for my 48smart tv ue48146400ak

For camera purchases there are a BUNCH of things you OUGHT to have in mind before throwing serious money at a camera...

The biggest question is what do you want the other end... to see??

Typically a "portrait" (single person=narrow angle focus) image is what folks are thinking when doing a person to person web session... but there are also area image cameras... (appox 60 degree)... or whole room... (wide angle) cameras available.

Lighting and resolution are also important considerations.

(and sound).

B&H video supply in New York is an excellent source for information... and their prices are quite competitive!!

I just purchased my Logitech WEbcam today, and it's very very fuzzy, like scratchy. I can't get a clear picture for more than like one second. Please help.

It sounds like the auto focus isn't properly focusing on you. Try manually turning the ring on the front of the webcam lens to manually focus it. Also try the other tips in the article Improve Your Webcam Video Quality.

Can not get a clear picture

There is always a ring around the lens. This is the focusing ring. Sit about two feet from the camera and after starting it rotate the ring slowly first in clockwise then in anti clockwise direction. The lens will bring your face into sharp focus at one place. Just leave the ring there and always use it to focus if you find the picture not clear.

My dnex web cam wont clear up what can I do to

Check the cleanliness of the lens first. If it looks reasonable, then try turning the small outer circle around the lens to focus the camera.

If that doesn't work, then the lens may have become loose from the focus function, it'll either need re-attaching somehow or maybe even complete replacement.

The webcam image is not clear when it is in full screen mode

its a low resolution image, the larger the image is made, the larger the pixels become and this makes the image blurry. unfortunately nothing can be done about this besides buying a higher resolution camera.

Sony Network Camera SNC-M1(No Picture)

According to Sony the camera is a discontinued item. The cost to repair (repair option not available) would be more than purchasing a new one. I am in the process of purchasing a replacement camera.

Looking through a Skype forum thread, there appears to be at least 2 issues. First, for Logitech cam users you can try the following:

- Go to Skype / Tools / Options / Video Settings / Webcam settings / Advanced.
The contents of this window will vary depending on the particular model of camera that you have. If there are options for "Low Light Boost" and "Automatic Gain Control", turn them off. Adjust the manual sliders in the window to get reasonable video quality.

This seems to work for some people.

Then there is the more fundamental issue of Skype driver. Here is the link to the thread ( but the essence is that the older the driver the more likely the issue. Even with the latest driver it is not a guaranteed fix, but many people seem to suggest that downloading the latest drivers works for at least some of the time. Clearly Skype have known about this for a while and are dragging their heels sorting it out.

Hope this helps, T.
