Default Problems with webcam quality - 04-08-2009, 09:36 PM

I have the mini 9 with a 1.3 mp webcam, running on Ubuntu.
I've been playing around with it in both the Dell Chat program and Cheese, but the image is super contrasty....

My cheapo webcam from 4 years ago looks better.
Had anyone had this problem? Is there a way to manually set the camera settings in Ubuntu? Or is this just how it is?

It does look like an effect! I tried switching different effects on and off, and got rid of Cheese then readded it, but I'm a Ubuntu newbie so my knowledge base is limited for now.

Good to know it's a problem though, and not just "how it is"
At least problems can be solved.
