Default Webcam between Win7/XP and OSX - 03-22-2009, 09:20 PM

Hello all,
recently might have put osx on the mini9. definately not du@lb00tied if the apple lawyers are reading.

I was always disappointed with the webcam in MSN on win7/ quality was inferior to other laptops ive had, and needed brightness/gamma turned up somewhat if i wasnt sitting in a bright room.

but now with osx, i put on aMSN for a laugh, and was stunned how clear and sharp the webcam looks. My partner whois currently overseas was very impressed she can see my fine good looks in even finer detail.

its like comparing a standard def tv channel against HD.

ANyone else noticed this and more importantly - got tips to improve the webcam under windows ? At the moment i am using the Creative driver that comes with windows7 update.

Mini9, EETI touchscreen, corsair2GB, runcore64GB, Windows7Ultimate & OSX 10.6.2
