Webcam Settings App

You usually do not have much control over your iSight, FaceTime or 3rd-party webcams on a Mac. The Webcam Settings app changes that by adding a whole array of settings and adjustments for most webcams. You can change things like brightness, contrast, exposure, saturation and focus. You can even zoom and pan if the camera is a high enough resolution. You can get the Webcam Settings app from the Mac App Store at http://macmost.com/j-webcamsettings

    Gary, in your video, you mention that the app features depend on which camera you are using. Are the functions / features very different between the FaceTime camera on my Mac and the LogiTech camera you are using in the video? 8 bucks is not the end of the world but I would rather not spend it if the app does not provide similar function.

    Thanks

      Well, for instance, on the Basic screen I have an extra “Hue” setting with the FaceTime camera, but no White Balance. Under Advanced, I see a Noise Reduction setting, but the rest (zoom, pan, tilt) isn’t there.
      It isn’t a matter of the app showing different things, it is what things there are to show. There just isn’t manual white balance on one, while there is on the other. I figure Webcam Settings shows you everything that exists.
      And of course there are a dozen or more variations on the FaceTime camera too, depending on which Mac you have.

    Will the above problem be solve with the webcam setting?

      No. That is a separate issue. I would check and recheck settings in FaceTime and in System Preferences. If you can’t figure it out, then have an expert take a look, maybe the Genius Bar.
