I wasn't expecting stellar image quality from the integrated webcam camera on the ThinkPad X220, but I was expecting at least decent image quality, on par with other notebook computers, and I find the image quality to be very disappointing, best described as poor. Reviewers have also seen and commented on poor image quality (e.g., Lenovo ThinkPad X220 reviewed – adored for a bunch of reasons), so I assume this is due to poor hardware and/or software, not just a defect in my particular machine. Has anyone found any way to improve the image quality? Thanks.

Webcam quality is also poor under Linux - so it's probably just crapy hardware...
I just noticed that there was some serious residue on my webcam camera lens (probably came that way from the factory), and after thoroughly cleaning it off with pre-moistened lens wipes, my image quality is now much improved, to the point that I now consider it decent, so try cleaning your webcam camera lens.
