How to remove auto brightness feature?


webcam displays colours b> Webcams are useful in both personal and business functions, from video chatting to video conference calls. When your webcam displays strange colors, it is usually due to a problem that is easily fixed even without advanced technical abilities. By trying at-home solutions before sending the computer or camera in for service, you can save time and money.

Lighting
Lighting is a common cause of strange webcam colors. When your webcam does not have enough light, it compensates by adjusting settings internally. The adjustments can result in color shifts that are not true to life. Bright, diffuse lighting reduces the workload on your webcam and allows it to display colors as they are. The light source should be behind the computer and pointed at your face to reduce shadowing and provide an even light. Avoid light sources behind you, as they can cause extreme contrast between your face and the light. b> Webcam Settings b> Most webcams come equipped with customization settings that allow you to adjust the display. Changing the settings while watching a preview webcam image can help you fix odd colors on the display. The location of the video settings varies, but is often located in the Preferences, Settings, Configure or Video menus. Adjust the tint, contrast and brightness settings until the image shifts to a normal color scheme. Webcam Drivers b> Webcam drivers allow the camera to function properly. When your drivers are corrupt or out of date, they can affect even the most basic display abilities. Webcam manufacturers publish the most recent driver downloads on their websites, usually on the individual product page, along with instructions for installation. To allow your computer to communicate with the webcam and use the drivers, run a software update to install any recent versions. b> Special Effects b> Some webcams come with built-in special effects that allow you to customize the appearance of the video stream. If an effect was enabled during the last session, it may stay on when the camera is turned on again. Turning the effects off will usually resolve the problem. The location of video effect settings varies by webcam model and manufacturer. Logitech Video Effects are located using the mask button in the QuickCam menu. On a Mac, effects for the built-in iSight webcam can be changed in the Effects 1 and 2 menus in the Photo Booth application. Hope this helps.

I have a presario cq62-225nr i was wondering if it had a webcam installed if so how do i turn it on?


From looking at several product pages it seems that the particular model you posses does not come standard with a webcam. However, an external USB webcam can be purchased from almost any electronics retailer (ex. BestBuy, Futureshop, etc. depending on location) for as little as $15 USD.
These webcams are very easy to install and utilize and typically come with everything you need to get started (i.e. cables, instructions and drivers).

You can use the webcam software that comes with it. Alternatively, you can Control Panel->Printer and Other devices->Scanner and Cameras->Right Click on the camera icon->Properties...then change the resolution, brightness, etc.

I cannot manipulate the camera settings on my Orbit AF. I tried to manipulate the zoom, the brightness on the Camera or any other settings it acts as though I can't even thought I have admin rights on the...


You can change zoom directly on the webcam( round left or right the objective ). The contrast and the brightness you can change from the webcam's capture software. You must install the driver you received with the camera.
