One of the sad losses on the Y530 when Upgrading to Win 7 is the webcam driver and software.
Is Lenovo working on something for this?
Should I hunt for third party software?
What would be recommended?

Yes, i tried the Vista Easy Capture driver back when I went to Win7, it didn't work.
Windows 7 Update advisor had said that Easy Capture would no longer function.
The Vista 32-bit driver in the Downloads page for Y530 shows that driver, but it's version is 1.0.0,
so I guessed it was nothing new.
Would this be the correct driver/program for the video recording part of the webcam?
I'll try it tonight though, to make sure I didn't overlook it before.

Okay, Loaded up Camera driver successfully.
But found no camera only software to control taking a picture.
Loaded Easy Capture and got the error message that it was incompatible with "Current Version of Windows".
However....when I clicked Okay, it opened the program, then I got a "Camera Failed To Open" Message.
I click on the Video Button in Easy capture and shot a video...it worked.
Camera though, would NOT work in Camera mode.
But after closing the program and re-opening it, the camera DID work...after getting the incompatibility message again.
So, it seems that it's just glitchy, but will function.
Thanks again yigit!
