Like many others, i bought the Logitech C910 HD webcam with the understanding that it's fully compatible with mac osx. It is not. the software for mac crashes. With this app i'm able to have full manual control of the C910 webcam, including manual focus. That's great for stop motion animation too, if your in to that sort of thing. This app has been stable for me and iv'e had no problems using it. It's easy and straight forward. I really like it.

Saved mmy skype sessions! ★★★★★

I recently built a Hackintosh using my current PC parts, and I couldn't get my Microsoft Lifecam Cinema to look good! There was too much exposure and my face was always so white that you couldn't make out the features. I briefly considered getting iGlasses, but the $20 price tag was too much…this app really saved me from buying a Known Mac compatible webcam! Fixed my image with literally the click of one button.

Works great ★★★★★

I like to do stopmotion/ claymation in my spare time, so I was really disappointed when my webcam (Microsoft Lifecam Studio) would keep adjusting the focus and exposure for me. I was browsing the app store and found this, which lets you manually adjust the settings to where ya want 'em. Finally Lifecam Studios lighting won't adgust itself after every frame, lol. This software goes hand in hand with animating and chatting using webcams.

YES! Works on Logitech C920, too! ★★★★★

By mere accident, I got into a conversation with a friend who was evaluating this app and it was interesting to me, too. I bought it before he did and now he's convinced to buy it, too. I have a Logitech C920, which has _no_ OS X software at all, but the camera works fine in OS X apps (except for iMovie and Photobooth). I had always hated missing the manual controls like the Windows software provides. I had to do weird things in order to get my lighting right—and then not move at all! Webcam Settings fixed all this for me! Now I can control my C920's white balance, exposure, and even focus! And the app does truly directly control my webcam and doesn't function as a new webcam (like CamTwist Studio does). I was impressed that I could start controlling my webcam immediately after launching the app and I didn't have to restart my program that was already using my webcam. The program is lightweight, extremely useful, and works wonderfully! Definitely worth the cost!

Exactly what I needed. ★★★★★

As as someone who records videos where manual focus is absolutely needed, I was concerned I'd never be able to use any webcam on my computer, becuase I searched for what felt like forever and found no manual support for anything on OSX, and all the apps I found online made to support manual webcam controls either didnt work or worked at a very small resolution. This worked wonders, did exactly what it was meant to do, and isn't bogged down by a whole bunch of useless features like funny filters or presets. It just lets you control your webcam. A must-have for people like me who use their webcam for more than just the occasional skype session.

Great! ★★★★★

Works great with my external webcam and provides me with plenty of controls to manage several parameters. Just what I needed. Thanks!!

This app is awesome with MS Lifecam Studio!! ★★★★★

I had been frustrated whenever I use my MS lifecam studio with iChat because it does not work properly on light exposure - it was too bright so I couldn't recognize picture well. But after using this app, every problems with my MS lifecam studio were gone!! I recommend people who want to use iChat with external usb CAM properly with good image quality.

Works on Logitech C525 too ★★★★★

Works, including support for focus adjustments. Facetime, Photo Booth, Quicktime, Messages, and anything else I tried, worked without issue. No complaints.

Yeeeaaaaahhhhh!! Works on Logictech C920 :) ★★★★★

Yup, I use three c920 on Wirecast Studio and I can kill auto focus, auto illumination, auto White Balance, so, I can adjust every things and individually...

Wish I knew about this months ago ★★★★★

Very nice webcam settings editor that allows a lot of adjustments. So far I've only used it in the built in iSight cam, but it's the best app I've seen for this type of thing.


  1. Hi, I just bought your app, thank you. At last a solution!

    Mactaris -- for your own benefit, you should do some simple search engine optimization because I did not find your app solution until after 2 days and several different Google search strings. And there are thousands of people seeking this manual controller, especially for white balance. A visit to Logitech user forums in USA will tell you this in an instant. Here is just one example:
    But also in most search results on Google, that is what you mostly see --- people like us trying desperately to find an answer.
    You also see people on Skype forums asking these same questions. When there is an answer, finally, like your app, and it is "hidden" from public awareness, this is not good. I hope you will post to some of the major USA Mac-specific blogs telling them about your product and linking to a demo. I also think if you were to send CNET a free app by email, they would review it POSITIVELY, and many many people would find out about it. Until then, thank you for writing this.

  2. Great tool for a better picture!

    This small but mighty tool saved my investment (c920)! The c920 is a nice camera but lacks reasonable mac support. After installing Webcam Settings the picture quality improved a lot when using e.g. Facetime. Thanks again for this app! Hope you will continue developing this little diamond.
