RightLight automatically adjusts your webcam’s image settings to provide the best image quality in all lighting environments. It does this by adjusting the frame rate and exposure if required, to compensate for poor light.

We recommend checking this box to enable RightLight, because it will only adjust the frame rate and exposure if poor light makes this necessary. If it isn’t needed, no frame rate or exposure adjustments are made.

WebCam note Advanced Settings tab Tip

· If you enable RightLight box in a low-light environment, the reduced frame rate may result in choppy video. If this happens, we recommend leaving the RightLight box checked and increasing the light available from the back and side. RightLight will then automatically increase the frame rate, improving the fluidity and quality of your video.

If it is not possible to increase the light available, try unchecking this box to disable RightLight and see if that resolves the issue.

Image Quality

If you disable RightLight, use the sliders to adjust the image settings manually.

· Exposure. Determines the amount of light that your lens allows into your webcam. A low exposure opens and closes your lens with higher frequency (up to 1/10000 second); a high exposure opens and closes your lens with lower frequency (as low as 1/5 second, depending upon your frame rate). A high exposure may be preferable in a low-light environment such as a poorly lit room; a low exposure may help in bright conditions.
· Gain. Determines the strength of the image signal. A low gain may be preferable in bright conditions, and a high gain may be better in a low-light environment. Either check the Auto box if you want the software to assign a Gain setting that is appropriate in most circumstances, or uncheck the box and use the slider to adjust manually.
· Brightness. Determines the balance of light and dark shades in your images. A high brightness delivers lighter images; a low brightness delivers darker images.
· Contrast. Determines the range between the brightest and darkest shades in your images. Images with a high contrast have strong light and dark values; images with low contrast have most color values in the mid-tones, producing a gray or murky effect.
· Color Intensity. Determines the saturation. A low intensity results in dull, gray shades; a high intensity makes colors more vivid.
· White Balance. Ensures that what is white in the real world is white in your photos and videos, irrespective of lighting conditions. This is achieved by rebalancing the red and blue levels of the video. Either:
o Check the Auto box if you want Logitech webcam software to do this for you automatically.


o Set the white balance manually. To do this, leave the Auto box unchecked, point the camera at a white object such as a wall, and move the slider until the wall appears white on screen.


Helps to reduce flicker that can result when you’re in rooms lit by fluorescent light. Choose:

· Off if you are not using your Logitech webcam in a fluorescent-lit room.
· NTSC – 60Hz if you are in a fluorescent-lit room in North America, where the fluorescent light flicker rate is 60Hz.
· PAL – 50Hz if you are in a fluorescent-lit room in Europe, where the fluorescent light flicker rate is 50Hz.

Image orientation

Choose the orientation of the image that is recorded:

· Normal. Image is recorded normally.
· Mirrored. Switches the horizontal orientation of the image, so that the left side becomes the right side, and right becomes left. (Like looking at yourself in a mirror!)

When the settings are as you want them to be, click Save to apply them and close the window.

You can click Restore to Defaults at any time to cancel any changes you have made to these settings, restoring them to their original state as they were when you first started using your webcam.
