Hello Maria48 and welcome to Lenovo community,


Kindly try reinstalling the camera software and check if it resolve the issue.




If the persist, please try following methods:

Install YouCam Software first.


Method one:

Adjust brightness and contrast via the interface “Video Enhancement”, camera image effect could be improved clearly.



Method Two

Click “Configure the YouCam settings” and adjust “Capture resolution” to a higher value. The higher the resolution is, the better the effect will be.





I hope this will resolve your issue.


Best Regards,

Re: Z470 Lenovo camera dark

Hello, I had similar problem with B470 (windos 7 starter 32 bit). Very dark and almost unusable webcamera with artificial lighting.
I have installed XP driver instead of Windows 7 driver and the problem is completely resolved. The difference was like "night and day". At now is OK. I guess this can help you too...Regards
