Save and Restore Webcam Properties with CamProps 1.1.0 (ahora también en español)

CamProps is a free utility for quickly adjusting and managing the properties of webcams and other video capture devices. I wrote it when I struggled with my Logitech C920 that required some manual tweaking to achieve a good picture quality. CamProps enables you to store and quickly recall settings which comes in handy if you have different lighting situations in your room – or when the webcam once again simply “forgets” its settings.

CamProps works with all webcams and video capture devices that support opening the webcam driver property dialog (either the default provided by Windows or a specific dialog by the manufacturer's driver).

For instance, when you press the “” button for a Logitech C920 without the Logitech software installed, this will open the following dialog:

(This dialog may look different for other devices)
