I ught a trust 380 usb webcam which is suppose to be a good one but the images are grainy and seem to lack colour any ideas


I may actually be insane.
What app are you using to obtain images? resolution? Compression? Video format?

Web-cam images were never intended to be great, and unless you pay £70+ for your cam, they'll always be a bit grainy. Also most cams need a LOT of light to work in, low light (even that of a bulb/lamp lit room isnt enough for some cams) the image quality will be poor.

OK :)

Start with, What application are you using to obtain the image from the web-cam ? .. this shouldn't matter as such, as applications don't really affect the image quality, but different apps will use different settings.

Is there plenty of light? webcams don't work well in dark places. My old cam never used to work in anything but daylight.
