This is the "first light" of my new Color Quickcam (classic, not the new VC). I wasn't expecting the camera to be so much slower than my b/w quickcam! It took much more work getting the camera focused and getting the colors right. Unfortunately, the results are less than exceptional. Its is very difficult to get any sort of contrast with this camera if it isn't broad daylight.

I found it very easy to get contrast with my original quickcam, but this was quite a task. I'm not sure if I am getting the focus right or not, as there is not enough contrast for me to focus on. Hopefully I can fine-tune this process a bit more.
