    My former computer was a DELL XPS and i love the webcam because it captures fairly good video even in poor lightning conditions.
    My new MBP seems to have better quality pics/vids, but they seem to look darker and requires more light to show up good. Would love to know if theres a settings to lighten up the cam during capture.

    What OS are you using when you use the webcam?

    Are you using the built in webcam or a external one?

    if you care enough about lighting, then use something else besides a ****** webcam.

    Ok, so i will have to increase the lights in the room to get a brighter pic/Vid, which i don't have to do with my Dell webcam.
    I also stumbled across an app iglasses, i will download and try it. Maybe thats my fix.
