    Not much improvement possible, except an external webcam.
    What do you need to improve? Image resolution, brightness, ...?

    You cannot improve the resolution, as it is set in stone by the hardware. The brightness could be improved by better lighting in whatever place you want to use it in, as it is a very small camera with a very small sensor.

    If you really need to have a better or bigger resolution, look at external solutions, like the Logitech C615 webcam.

    Lighting will fix most of your problem. In bad lighting, (ei - it's dark) a camera has to digitally enhance the image which degrades the quality (looks grainy).

    Your best bet is to sit by a window, or point a desk lamp at yourself, and if want to get fancy tape a piece of white paper over it to diffuse the light a bit.
