  1. Hi There. I recently purchased your app to get control of the zoom on my logitech c910 but upon using it, I discovered that the zooming increments seem to be pretty drastic zoom levels. Is there any way to reduce the amount of zoom for each increment? Thanks!

    1. C910 has only five zoom levels from its hardware, and the working zoom level is related to the camera resolution.

      For example if you are on low resolution like 320x240, the hardware zoom works from 1 ~ 5.
      If you are on 1280x720, the hardware zoom only works from 1 ~ 2.
      On resolution equal and above 1920x1080, the hardware zoom has no effect.

      You can check this link for resolution - zoom level table.

      This is how the Logitech implement their camera hardware, I am sorry Webcam Setting cannot change this.
      Please email me if you have any further questions, thank you very much.

  2. Ah that sucks! What are the capabilities with this cam do you know? (Logitech Quickcam Vision Pro for Mac).

    Thanks for getting back to me!

    1. From various places I read from Logitech website, Logitech Quickcam Vision Pro for Mac seems to be a re-packaged Logitech QuickCam Pro 9000. I believe it's capabilities should be similar to the QuickCam Pro 9000.

  3. Ooo. - just noticed this fix. DOes it mean the lifecam studio's useful exposure range isn't just the first 10% or so of the slider now? :D

    1. Yes, LifeCam Studio's exposure time should work a lot better since version 1.1.

    2. Awesome :D :D My little BoinxTV studio thanks you!

    3. Will you consider post a review on the Mac App Store? Thank you very much :)

  4. Hi, I was wondering if there is a demo available? I'd like to see if this app will allow my camera to come into focus (or at least adjust focus) before purchasing.

    1. I am sorry there is currently no demo or trial version. Can you please send me an email at I will help find out if your camera supports focus setting. Thanks.
