Re: why is my web cam so grainy?

Hi,

 

You don't supply your machine info therefore this is my guess: webcams have many models, flavours. They can be from 0.3 mega pixels to what ever. In your case could be (a) You've got a low resolution webcam and (b) Not enough light for the webcam to work, similar to taking photos in the dark w/o flash.

 

Regards, 

BH
