A "racist" webcam. Actually, that is pretty funny. Of course, HP is right about contrast being the problem. The lower the camera's ability to see contrast -- and webcams usually rate pretty low in that regard -- the more it tends to have problems with darker-skinned people. And you can actually have the same problem with white people. Just ask anyone who's ever tried to shoot video of someone standing in front of a window on a sunny day. In fact, talking of background, I'd bet Cryer would have been "seen" by the camera better if the two of them had been standing against a darker background...say, a medium-to-dark blue or gray wall. The camera would've irised up a bit, enabling it to pick up more detail. As it is, it looks like the two of them are standing in front of not only a pale wall, but a fluorescent lighting fixture as well.
