Many factors can affect the image quality of your pictures. If you are experiencing blurry images, please try adjusting the focus ring located around the lens. This will allow you to focus the camera image on objects at different distances. Also, make sure there is good lighting. Improving the lighting conditions can improve the image quality considerably.
Connection Issues:
If the image quality is poor while transmitting video over the Internet using video enabled programs such as MSN Messenger, Yahoo! or AOL Instant Messenger, your connection speed to the Internet directly affects the image quality of the transmitted video. Corporate LAN, DSL/cable modem connections will result in the best image quality experience, while dial-up connections may result in choppy and overall poor quality because of the slower connection speed. Even broadband connections such as DSL/cable modem may experience choppy video at times because of Internet traffic or slow upload speeds. If the image appears clearly in the camera software, most likely your Internet connection may be responsible for the poor image quality in your video program.
Changing Display Adapter Settings:
If you are still experiencing a distorted, fuzzy or grainy image, you may need to change the settings for your display adapter. For optimal image quality, please make sure the video display adapter is set to display at least 16-bit high color or higher. To change the color palette please perform the following steps:

  1. Click on "Start," "Settings," and "Control Panel."
  2. Double-click on the Display icon.
  3. Click on the tab labeled Settings.
  4. In the dialog box labeled Color Palette, verify the video mode is set to 16-bit (high color) or 24-bit (true color).
  5. Also, check with the manufacturer of the video card for updated video drivers.
Low Light Boost:
If you cannot do anything to improve the lighting situation, some Logitech video cameras have an option for "Low Light Boost." If there is an option for "Low Light Boost," try enabling the "Low Light Boost" in the QuickCam software. To do this:
  1. Open the QuickCam software.
  2. At the bottom right hand corner of the camera image box, click on the arrow next to the QuickCam icon.
  3. Choose "Advanced Camera Settings".
  4. Under the Image Enhancement box, place a check mark in the "Low Light Boost" option.
  5. If that does not improve the image quality, try adjusting the other image settings, such as contrast, saturation brightness, gain and white balance.
  6. Click OK when your are done.
Using Latest Software:
Finally, make sure you are using the latest release of Logitech camera software. You can download the latest release from the Logitech Downloads + Parts page.

It could be the cam doesn't have enough power. Might you be running a machine thats a few years old? Try getting a usb slitter / hub that has it's own power source. Thanks

Blurring during realtime movement


Try a different USB port if you can.
Check the lighting, to make sure you do not have "low light" conditions, that will affect the picture in a similar way.
Check the focus ring on the front to make sure it is set right.

How do i capture a pic and send it in my webbcam


Usually you should have a button on top of webcam. Pressing it, will make pictures. Save the pictures in folder and you can send via email

If you don't have the button, you must open the application provided with the webcam. (e. g. Start - programs - your webcam name). In that application you must have option Capture. Clicking on it, it will make pictures.

You can use the mail (Yahoo, Hotmail, Gmail) attaching the picture

Saving pics i take


you have to create seperate photo albums and folder names. the the camera labels your pictures 1 2 3 and so on. so when those numbers come up again they are overwritten with the new info. so to avoid this...create one folder.(main)... then open that folder and create a new (sub)folders within the main folder for every download hopefully 10 or so more pictures at a time per sub folder....name the sub filders according to the content or, the current date which they were downloaded. what works well with myspace is photobucket.com your personal picture storage online for free. but til then the simple way is to keep this main folder in my pictures...most sites assume your pics are already there. it is the default directory with your msp,s(myspace pik's) ready to upload.

Need advice on webcam's


You can use any webcam you like with any computer you like. I use a Logitech QuickCam Communicate STX. It's quite good, the video (if viewed locally) doesn't lag, but it will over the internet; that's the nature of the beast. But the audio is fine. You can find one for about $40-50. There's also one model above and one model below. I've had trouble w/the model below; wouldn't install on my parents machine and I've yet to have the chance to try it on mine. But you can't really go wrong with Logitech. Just about everything they make is good.
