Lenovo flex really poor camera image quality

2020-09-10, 21:38 PM

Hi I have just bought brand new lenovo flex 5 14" AMD 5 and am seriously shocked at the terrible camera quality - it is so grainy - like an old analogue TV with really dull colour. I have tried changing settings in Vantage but all I can do is adjust contrast and brightness and it does not make the image any clearer. I am shocked that any new laptop can have such a bad camera.. I have never seen such a bad image.. Is there a problem or anything I can do about this as I need a clear picture for zoom calls etc and can barely be seen clearly.. Really disappointed/ concerned! Don't want to have to return it as I like the laptop otherwise..

Hi, @Koalalalah!

 

In your case, the best way is to buy an external cam. It also would improve the sound quality)

Hi,  I have a ideapad 3 and and I looking through this forum to see if anyone else thought the camera is super bad!  My image is all pixelized, I plud in an old Logitecg webcam and the image was crisp.  I can't believe they could put such a low quality camera on a laptop like this...makes me want to return it.

I bought a good external cam. Didn't change a thing. My zoom image is clear, but lacks color. My face looks greyish.

Hi! Did you ever find a way to fix this? I have this exact laptop as well and have the same problem, really need a laptop for my online university course and have to have my camera working as I'm doing acting.
