Exposure not working on Microsoft Teams

By Kevin
Rated 1 out of 5
Date: 2022-02-25

Using Microsoft Windows on a Microsoft Surface with Microsoft Teams and the Microsoft LifeCam has an exposure issue. I have to manually set the exposure for every video call to get it to look like I'm not in a dungeon. I am sure its driver related, but certainly a headache.

An absolute garbage webcam

This webcam is slow to focus and find proper exposure. It does not work properly with Microsoft teams- whenever you log into a meeting, your image will be underexposed until you unplug and replug the camera. These issues are not as present when using Zoom. Images are not sharp and can get very noisy. I've had one of these for several years of light usage but have increased my dependence on it since the start of quarantine in march, and it has already failed. For this price point, you can get a much better webcam that will last you a lot longer.

USUAL hi efficiency service from B & H This web cam will work out just great. In my case, is it for strata council and AGM, strata annual general meetings, using ZOOM. This device has a very good flexible mounting base, clamp onto your LT or monitor, or screw it down, it has a threaded metal 5mm female screw built into the flexy part of the base, or just sit it on a shelf adjust it, and that's it. Beautiful little cam. Modern design, very compact. Mic sounds fine. R K

Completely PnP with win 10. Good focus, auto and man, good image. BH kept me up to date on availability and shipped quickly! Again, Fedex does NOT deliver to the door. Left at and of 1/4 mile long driveway after dark. Not acceptable. Many BH shipments are high value items.

It does what it's intended to do

I bought this because my home computer was built to do video and graphics and as such I never fit it with a camera. When the Covid-19 pandemic broke out I needed something for video conferencing--this little camera fits the bill. Its video quality is about what you get on a laptop built in camera. Reasonably clear and works well in regular office light. Super easy to set up and hang on my rather large graphics monitor. I wouldn't use it for YouTube streaming, as the colors and contrast aren't near professional quality, but again, it's just fine for business conferences. And for the price, I don't think I could do much better.

TIene buen lente, y enfoca muy bien. El microfono por lo menos resuelve.

Do not waste your time with this camera

This is perhaps one of the worst webcam's on the market. The auto exposure is terrible. It overexposes and you cannot make any adjustments. The picture quality is unacceptable, there is a lot of motion blur. Very disappointed with this camera and surprised that this camera bears the name Microsoft.

question

Compatible on windows 10?
Asked by: Darren H.
It does work with Windows 10. However, when you go to the Microsoft site, the driver is supported on windows XP through Windows 8. Windows 10 has the capability to recognize the camera's microphone and camera without a driver.
