Open the options menu for the lifecam on msn (looks like little stars by your display picture), and click on the lil green MSN guy with a box around his head. That will turn the tracking on or off. Good luck!

I’ve dell inspiron N series 5010. My operating system is windows 7. My laptop has a built in camera. The problem is I was using MSN messenger and was showing my webcam I picked up my laptop while showing...

Many webcams have a feature that allows them to track a face. the reason they have this feature is so when a person is on a call and they want to move around some, the don't have to worry about moving the web cam. this feature will follow their face so they stay centered in the picture. I have used it in the past but found that it does not work all that well so I end up turning it off. Its very possible that if you have not moved that much or like you said picked up the laptop, you might not have realized it was even on. My software had it off by default but yours might have turned it on by default.
I think you are not experiencing any abnormal behaviour from you webcam software. if you are concerned about being spied upon then you can simply put a cover over the lens. I do this but I do it so I don't accidentally have my face on a webex without manually opening the cover.
At the end of the day I think its a good feature but it does not always work well depending on the brand of web cam.

There is a possibility that your camera has technology to "face track"
open up your logitech camera software then check your options or preferences and look for "face tracking" and turn it off

Face-tracking prob with Quiclcam Pro5000

Make sure you have installed the latest software from Logitech's website. Be sure to UNPLUG the cam when installing, and ONLY plug it in when it tells you to do so.

Also, what service (msn, yahoo) are you trying to use face tracking in? Keep in mind that MSN, Yahoo, etc have their own camera settings, which may over-ride any default settings.

Of you're on MSN, Logitech has a solution:

Camera Zooms randomly??

I believe you have face tracking enabled. Go into PC Cam Center and go to the Live video section. In here there is a source button, click on it. On the video tab you should see an option for Face Tracking, turn it off and this zooming will stop.
