Just out of random, my wifes HP camera was out of focus from the box. Found that turning the outer circle round the lens put it in focus (like an old camera.) I have an HP VGA Webcam (EW193AA)
Give it a shot (tho don't turn too hard if it doesn't really move lol)

Blurred image


A webcam is first and foremost a camera that uses a lens to gather light reflected by an object. There are a number of reasons why the image captured by the webcam can be blurry, all of which can be remedied.
Supplies from a photography store or hobby shop, along with items that most people already have in their homes, are needed.
The webcam does not need to be disassembled in any way in order to obtain a sharp and clear image.

Launch the webcam's video program by selecting it from the "Start," and the "All Applications" menu.
Aim the webcam towards you so that you can see the blurry image presented in the program's video window.
Rotate the knurled focus ring that surrounds the lens at the front of the webcam until the image is sharp; if there is no focus ring, position the webcam closer or farther from you until the video image is sharp.
Blow off the lens at the front of the webcam with compressed air.
Moisten the end of a cotton swab in photo lens cleaning solution.
Wipe the lens with the moistened end of the swab, beginning at the center and rotating in a circle until you reach the outer edge.
Wipe the lens dry with a lens tissue in the same manner as was just done, to remove the contaminants that caused the blurry image.
Launch the webcam video program that is on the hard drive.
Select the "Advanced" or "Options" tab at the top of the program's main window -- depending on how the program is set up to bring up a settings window.
Reset the "Sharpness" control to 65 percent of the total possible, using a slider control or entering "65" in a text field.
Click the "Apply" button at the bottom of the window, followed by the "OK" button to sharpen the image transmitted by the webcam.

My webcam is really really blurry and i need to get it off help


Simplest answer: Usually webcams have a focus dial, this is usually a colored ring around the lens, you can actually turn this back and forth to focus better. I would try that above all else.

If that doesn't work you may actually have a problem with the camera. You could try uninstalling and reinstalling the drivers, and try a different USB port to plug it into.

Also try it with other video conferencing applications. If Google is Blurry and Skype is not, it may be a problem with the software you are using.

If all of those things fail, it may just be a worn out camera. If that's the case you may need to replace it.

My logitech webcam is blurry how do i fix that?


Some webcams have a focus ring around the lens that you rotate others rely on the software for a good focal length
Launch your Logitech toolbar from the desktop or from 'All programs'
Click on the 'Quick Capture' menu (2 photo frames picture) to start your webcam.
With the webcam running click on the 'Settings' menu (2 gearwheels picture)
Here you can adjust all your settings to achieve the best image

QuickCam v11.7, blurry then didn't work!


Some webcams have a focus ring around the lens that you can rotate to achieve the sharpest picture.
Some rely on software alone
You have a Logitech webcam, so you can launch the dedicated webcam toolbar and adjust the settings from there as well - click on the 2 gear wheels for the Settings.
Make sure no Video Effects are selected ( the two theatre masks on the toolbar )

Its blurry


You may have a focus ring around the lens - if so start the webcam and try to find the optimum setting.
Otherwise you will have to uninstall the software and reinstall it again from the manufacturers support website

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.
