Question about Logitech QuickCam Communicate STX Personal Web Camera

1 Answer

No Focus Ring

I have a Logitech STX Quickcam and there's no focus ring. There's a button on the side but I'm not sure if that's the focus button or not. Not much happens when I press it. I need to focus on an object that's held pretty close to the camera and it's very blurry.

Re: No Focus Ring

The button on the camera is for taking "snapshots".

As far as the focus is concerned, I believe thats a "fixed focus" model. Have you tried going through the Logitech control panel?

There may be a "focus" slider on there somewhere under "tools" (the icon looks like a set of gears).

The Logitech QuickCam is a webcam for Windows-based notebooks and laptop computers. The device also works on desktop computers, but contains the mounting hardware for portable computers. The webcam includes a USB connection, utility application and the device driver so your notebook's operating system can recognize the device. Like other webcams, you need to focus your Logitech QuickCam so individuals viewing you on the Internet or through other means can see you clearly. Open the Logitech QuickCam utility program by clicking on the program's icon on your computer's desktop or by clicking "Start," "All Programs," "Logitech," " Logitech QuickCam." Click on the chat client or website you are using the Logitech QuickCam on if you are not using the Logitech QuickCam utility. Turn the webcam's focusing ring on the front of the camera to the left or right slowly to focus the camera. You will see your image in the Logitech QuickCam preview window on your notebook's screen. Rotate the webcam's head, if needed, to center your image in the preview window. Hope this helps.

Odds are its out of focus. There should be a focus adjustment ring around the lens that can turn in both directions (clockwise & counter)

Adjust this untill you get a clear picture.

Object of cam out of focus.

Make sure the lens is clean.
Some logitech webcams have a knurled focus ring around the lens you rotate to sharpen the image.
Otherwise launch the logitech toolbar and open the 'Settings' menu ( 2 gearwheels) and you will find all the software adjustments here.

I have a logitech quickcam v11.7 and it went blurry what can i do

On all webcams and also on other cams you have a ring around the lens. This ring is meant to focus the camera on to the object. start the webcam and rotate the ring. Clockwise and anticlockwise. Whichever direction get you to a focussed image, stop there.

The image is blurry and doesn't focus.

I believe the ring around the eye moves and will focus.

Did you make sure the lens was clean? Wipe lens off the reset the webcam to its default settings. Slowly adjust the focus ring for best effect then adjust the video settings.

It zooms really close to my face

1) Launch QuickCam software, just goto Start>Programs>Logitech>Logitech QiuckCam.
2) Press the "Change Settings" button, and in the Settings page, just choose the manual focus option, and adjust your focus until the image is clear.
