There are a number of factors that contribute to the image quality, including available lighting and screen resolution settings.
Adjust your webcam settings, such as brightness contrast, hue and saturation to accommodate the lighting in the room. In order to access your webcam settings, click on "Start" and open the "Control Panel." Choose "Hardware" and then choose your internal webcam from the hardware menu. Select the "Properties" tab to open the setting controls and slide each bar until you achieve the ideal visual settings for your broadcast. Increase the available lighting behind you when conducting a webcam chat, but do not increase the lighting close to the webcam. A lack of back lighting not only creates a darker image projection, but can cause graininess. Too much light close to the webcam can blanch the image, making it difficult to see. Adjust your screen resolution. When the image quality is blurred and distorted during a webcam broadcast, lowering your resolution can sharpen the image projection. To lower your resolution, right-click on your desktop and click "Properties." Choose "Screen Resolution," from the available prompts. Lower the screen resolution one step below where it is currently set and test the image quality. If it needs further sharpening, repeat the process until you achieve the desired clarity. Adjust settings in the video chat program you are using. For example, if you are using Skype, select "Tools" and click on the "Video" icon in the left toolbar. Select "Webcam Settings" and adjust your visual and camera function settings, such as the hue and saturation, as well as lighting compensation. Test your bandwidth settings. If the traffic on your network is high, and multiple users are sharing the same Internet connection, it can affect your bandwidth and lower the quality of your video projection. In order to conduct a quality video session, you should have minimum bandwidth connection of 128 kbps. To check your bandwidth, visit an online test site like SpeedTest and run a bandwidth check. Dust off the lens to free dust particles with an air can. Dust particles can cloud the clarity, but you don't want to wipe them away with your fingers or a rough cloth. Blasting the lens with a burst of canned air will blow away debris and help improve picture clarity.

What could cause my webcam to be blurry?


Whether your holding a video business conference, having a personal video chat with a friend or recording video with your laptop webcam, image clarity plays a huge factor in the quality of the video.

My webcam is blurry. But the camera is not dirty. I don't know what the problem is. Its fairly new, I got it about a month ago but haven't used it much. It's the Logitech, HD 720p.


Hi ihtstasiaax

Try gripping the lens frame and twist to focus the lens to the desired focal length/resolution.

Also with some webcams it is better to install the software first, restart the computer then connect the camera.

Disconnect Webcam > Remove all components of the camera software in Add or Remove Programs > Apply > OK > Restart computer > reinstall camera software > Restart computer > connect camera > focus lens to desired focal length/resolution.

If this does not work it may be faulty and should be returned under warranty.

I hope this helps.

The resolution is very dark and not clear


You should first try improving the lighting on your face, and be sure to avoid all light from behind you (close a curtain if necessary). Good lighting improves both color and resolution. The article How To Improve Your Webcam Video Quality provides lots of other free tips.

Hi Thomas,
Have you tried adjusting your resolution? To maximize the quality of video/picture that your webcam can capture, Turn the resolution into 1.3megapixel. Adjusting the resolution is by clicking the arrow above the Video Option.

PC web cam not funcitoning properly


Well, that could be because of the cam itself. It is a cheap cam. If you want better quality you will have to buy a little more expensive cam with atleast 1 MegaPixels resolution. The one you currently have has about 600 000 Pixels. Simply put, you will have to buy a cam with higher resolution for better quality.
