Focus issues The video is out of focus and when I turn the nob it won't go into focus. I suspect it's a hardware issue but is there anything related to software that might be causing the problem?

Cam loses focus on Skype


I have the same exact issue - however, it appeared. In order to understand whether it is the driver/os issue I moved my camera to a different computer - from Windows desktop to Mac laptop. And the issue still PERSISTS. I did not have the same problem in the past few months where I used the exact same setup and the same camera. Thus, it can be that the camera went bad (unlikely) or a Skype issue (likely). I think it might be related to the peer connection re-evaluation that happens in the "~30 sec" interval

My web cam is fuzzy can i fix it


If this is related to and external web-cam, the issue can be fix by turning the focus adjuster, located on top of the lens (round ring that goes around the lens). Turn around until it gets clear image.

Good Luck!!

How do you focus the Microsoft Lifecam vx-3000?


Most webcams focus either manually or by software
The manual focus is a ring around the lens that you can rotate to sharpen the picture.
The software settings on the auto focus allow you to zoom in and out to get the best image in relation to the distance of the subject to the webcam

What would cause the image on a vx3000 to be blurry on either side of connection.im on xp,cable and other is on vista,satalite


Hi,
if your webcam’s image is not sharp, check to see if it has a focus ring. A blurry image can sometimes simply mean the webcam is not in focus. Adjusting the focus through the ring can solve that problem.
If it Doesnt work try to change video capture properties for webcam.Most of the programs have an option to access the properties of the video source which will bring up the video capture properties window. (Msn, Yahoo Etc.)

My webcam is not clear


it's not clear because you have to turn the part around the lense to focus it,
as far as the darkness goes... well that's another issue I'm trying to find out if maybe using a lamp closer will help brighten it but if you find out anything please share!

Focus


The little white ring on around the lense, that is the focus on the camera. Now the other issue with picture quality is the camera itself. I believe this camera only 1.3 mega pixels to get a less blurry higher quality pic u should use a higher mega pixel camera

Blury Pictures


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.
