Try using the software for the webcam your laptop came with. It is usually optimized for the built-in webcam.
Although if the bad picture you are getting is indeed the cause of a bad camera and not just missing drivers/software, then you should consider upgrading to an aftermarket webcam. If quality is what you are after then go for a nice 5MP one. But if price is your concern then consider a 3MP camera.

If you could have mentioned the model of your laptop, and the resolution of your camera, i could have helped you out more, but with the limited amount of information i have from you, this is as far as i can go to help you out.

I have the swann 8 channel platinum cctv camera system and whilst it works with amazing quality during the day, the night vision is almost non-existant, it won't trigger cameras and is very dark on sc


Nearly all cameras work well in the day. Night vision depends on the type of camera and the technology it is using. For example a CMOS based camera will provide a very poor quality picture in the dark. A CCD Super HAD CCD II will provide a good picture with 0.01 illumination and a EXVie HAD CCD II will provide an even better picture with lux of 0.001. You really need to look at the specifications of the camera before you buy and not go with the "Platinum" or hype keywords used by the manufacturer. I have seen a lot of SWAN Cameras which are basically useless at night.

Why is my webcam picture on my pc fuzzy


i hate to be blunt but the reason that the picture is fuzzy is because if the type of cam. its about a $20 cam logitech. if you really want quality picture you will have to pay more for your cam. i have a logitech also and it really has crappy pictures. i bought a more exspensive one and
the pictures are very clear. sorry to say but its the cam its self. even if you adjust it in settings the picture really will never be clear.

My dnex web cam wont clear up what can I do to


Check the cleanliness of the lens first. If it looks reasonable, then try turning the small outer circle around the lens to focus the camera.

If that doesn't work, then the lens may have become loose from the focus function, it'll either need re-attaching somehow or maybe even complete replacement.

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.

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.

Poor quality images outdoors


try setting your camera's auto balance into Automatic or Outdoor. So the camera could adjust the light or diable flash.
