    I've got the Rocketfish 2.0MP Widescreen HD 720p USB - which worked with no issues in OS X Lion. I've since downgraded to SL and there is a really dark/red tint on the camera.

    Anyone have any ideas of what I can do to try to fix this?

    My guess is that the kernel extension that is responsible for providing support for your webcam isn't quite as fine-tuned in Snow Leopard compared to Lion or newer versions of OS X. I'm not sure what kernel extension would be responsible for this but you might be able to copy one from a Lion installation into Snow Leopard (make sure you back up first in case anything goes wrong).

    I hope this points you in the right direction and that you can get this working, have a great day. :)
