Thinkpad L512 Integrated Camera

What programs will this integrated camera work with and how do you actually use it?


I bought a new L512 recently and can't seem to figure out how to use it. I see an option to uninstall the integrated camera but is there also a program I can download to use the camera itself?


Any advice or feedback would be appreciated. Thanks

Re: Thinkpad L512 Integrated Camera

I also have an L512



All the drivers are installed and when i install yawcam it says that it detects the integrated cam but cannot connect to it when i try to access the device.


I was thinking it was probably disabled in the bios, but i can't figure out how to get into the bios.

Any suggestions?

Hello mate,


You can access the BIOS by pressing F1 just after turn on your computer.

I know I'm late, but GIMP is a software, that can take pictures from the integrated cam.
