This one is always tough to explain. First thing is that the
C920 actually only has a 3MP sensor, they add 15MP to the
description because of "software interpolation" (smoke and mirrors)
that can render your photos into less pixelated simulated 15MP
photos.....I know, it's false advertizing and someone should get a
throat punch for that.
The other thing is the resolution, everyone assumes that if they
have a great webcam then they should move the resolution slider all
the way too the right, unfortunatly not correct with the current SB
version (author is working on this). I always recommend 720x720 @
20FPS then go to the Logitech advanced webcam settings (Logitech
Software) and play with the sliders until you are happy with the
image....it takes some getting used to.
@zchurchz; are you saying that the C9000 gives 'better' results
than the C920? Or can the C920 give as good of results as the C9000
with some tweaking?
The reason that I ask is that my C910 is not giving me very good
results at all. I have spent tons of time on lighting and trying
every setting in SB with no improvement. I have tried a few of the
logitech settings and that's helped a bit but it's still grainy and
blurry. I'm wondering what can be done to get the best resolution
photos. I'd switch to a Canon DSLR but I'm having tons of issues
with the extrawebcam software, it's very tempramental and requires
lots of restarts, etc. It would be nice to be able to get great
results from a decent webcam (by great, I mean results that someone
paying $500 bucks for a photobooth rental will be pleased
No, I don't think so. I believe that with the way that SB
"see's" them they are equal. After that, it's all in the tweaking
I have been beta testing SB version on my booth and had one
thing that I did that helped was to remove all my printer drivers,
webcam drivers, all traces of Sparkbooth, run a registry cleaning
program....and re-install everything. All my webcam settings
(Logitech Software) that seemed unmanagable went back to default
and were managable again.
If I were at home I would attach some dorky pictures of myself
looking grainy and overexposed vs. sharp and properly colored.
