Question about Microsoft LifeCam VX-6000 Webcam
It has been like this ever since I got it and I just delt with the fact I bought a crappy webcam. I just wanted to know if the reason it wasnt working was because it was a lifecam, or if it was just this camera.
The image result is the same on Windows XP, Vista, 7 RC1
If you look at the bright part of my hand, it looks normal. But if you look where the shading is you see some pixalation with some greens
This one you can see some Red in the bottom left corner that is not present on the desk.
And lastly this is the best example, I turned my camera towards a White wall and this is the image the camera took.
You can see that rather than the wall being grey, It turns green and very pixalated.
I have begun to think that it just has issues with low light, but it said right on the lens that the VX-6000 is a "1.3 Megapixal, Wide-Angle Lens, 3x Zoom, Low Light"
As far as I know I have the latest driver installed and am not running any programs that Interfere with it.
I have downloaded the latest driver from here and it is still the same http://www.microsoft.com/hardware/download/DownloadResult.aspx?category=ICE&type=Webcams&name=VX6000&os=XPSP2x64〈=en
Windows XP Pro SP2 x32
Thank you for any help you can provide.
Test your cam here by hitting 'allow' in the top window and assessing the image in the left hand panel.
The image from your own software should be considerably better than this, as your software is dedicated to a single model and not for every cam in the world.
Just read the users reviews on cnet - not too promising with users rating the cam as 4/10
A couple of interesting things come up in the reviews and the first is that you do need a high-speed USB socket to plug it in. (2.0) and the wide range of opinion on the merits of the webcam
Moving on, if you feel your software is not as good as 'Testmycam' download this webcam diagnostic software and run it through
The first item - it always tells me to reboot - so I unplug the cam for a few seconds.Keep hitting next if you have no issues to address until you arrive at 'Finish'
Finally update your driver by expanding the 'Imaging' folder in Device Manager, right clicking your webcam text and select 'update driver software' use the internet option when prompted
