I started using the built-in camera on my S205 with Skype this week (the first use ever, with any application), and the color is very, very red.
So far, the only color adjustments I have located have been via the Cyberlink YouCam app (ver. 3.1.3623 - Standard), by selecting the icon for "Video Enhancement" and then selecting the "Advanced" radio button. This gives me access to 6 sliders, Brightness, Contrast, Gamma, Hue, Saturation and Sharpness, all of which are set to 50 by default.
I have reset Brightness to 45; Contrast to 81; Gamma to 20; Saturation to 10; and Sharpness to 100.
But the one I really need to adjust is Hue, and moving that slider does absolutely nothing. 0 is no different from 100.
My sense is that this is a busted driver. Is a more recent version available?
FYI, the current driver is from Vimicro, dated 9/21/2010, ver. 1.10.921.1. Here is a link to the Vimicro download page: http://www.vimicro.com/english/product/pc003.htm All of the files have dates older than the driver that is installed.
Anyone know how to fix this, or have a source for a more recent driver?

Yes. That is the driver that is installed (I referenced the version number of the installed driver in my original post).
Lenovo is really slow to update their drivers (understatement), so I went looking for newer drivers elsewhere. Didn't find any.
So I posted here.

The camera works (I have been talking to people all over the world on Skype). It is the inability to adjust a single control (hue) that is an issue.
What do you want me to test?

OK, your test page (http://www.testwebcam.com/) uses the exact same driver as Skype, YouCam3, and all of the other webcam apps.
The image (settings, resolution, color, brightness, contrast, etc.) are the same in all apps that access the camera.
