Question about Logitech QuickCam Pro 5000 Webcam

Image Quality and sound problems

My webcam in the past was always clear in picture, and sound. But recently after reconnecting after some time, the image is very poor and everything is out of focus and blurry. I've tried all the settings like sharpness, low light etc. But to no avail. The sound is problematic too, because after I finish recording my blurry video, playback contains a chipping noise interfering with the sound in my video. Is there anything I can do to fix this as I've already tried the settings?

To me it sounds as if the driver ya using isnot the best.. try Uninstalling and reinstalling any and ALL software & Drivers. Try another testing program, get Amcap, Google it. OR maybe the Focus ring has been moved? tho thats not gonna fix sound.. OR maybe the camera is going faulty?

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. 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.

How clear should picture be.on my web cam

It depends on what program you are using it in, the quality of the webcam and the computer resources
When I open my webcam from the desktop - I can hold a newspaper in front of it and read the print
Make sure the lens is clean and check to see if you have a focus ring around the lens you can rotate to sharpen the image ( like a telescope )

Picture is fuzzy

Are you referring to the image you're seeing, or the image the person on the other end is seeing?

Generally, the picture *you* see is clearer than the one on the other end. That's normal, because of image quality degradation over the internet.

The faster your internet connection, the better the image will be, but it'll never be as clear as what you see on your own computer.

Poor quality video transmission on new webcams

The camera lens can be focused by turing the lens from Left to Right. Sounds like this may be the problem. Hope this helps. Bud

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.
