Camera Adjustments in Meetings
Please give us the ability to adjust camera, microphone and speaker settings for a video meeting. We need settings similar to Skype. My camera is very dark and there's no brightness setting.
Installing LifeCam 3.6 software (supported on LifeCam HD-5000, HD-5001, and HD-6000 for Notebooks) seems to help. https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/get-firmware-drivers-and-software-for-microsoft-lifecam-cameras-4de0695c-8b9c-8666-24a8-ecd3d7a5d79b
Need support for Logitech Streamcam without having to use a virtual camera app. This causes delays in the stream and makes our team members believe that there is something wrong with Microsoft Teams. Logitech cameras have a large enough footprint that this should be supported. Apparently this is occurring Mostly on MS Teams and not other platforms and impacts a lot of the different types of Logitech Cameras.
Would be a great addition to what is a very good offering and remove some of the minor competitive advantages of other solutions...

This continues to be a huge issue for me. There is no way of knowing when the camera will work fine or not. More often than not, it's way too dark. I can open up the Microsoft camera app and it's just fine. But Teams makes it too dark, no one can see me, and I have no way of adjusting it.
Can't believe that after nearly 3 years this is still an issue! Microsoft, please take Teams seriously and fix issues like this. I have 2 Microsoft LifeCams. A LifeCam Cinema and a LifeCam HD300 which I bought when I thought the poor brightness/contrast was the because the LifeCam Cinema was faulty.
Logitech StreamCam control/settings would be great.
I would like to be able to set Automatic-zoom on or off.
same here, sort this critical issue out!

Same as all the other comments, have a Microsoft Lifecam Studio which works perfectly in Zoom, Skype, Google Meeting but is next to useless in your own app because its soooooo dark and doesn't adjust.
The brightness of my camera (a Microsoft LifeCam cinema) keeps changing in Teams, and there is no way to control it (turn off auto-adjustment and set manual brightness).

Microsoft LifeCam Cinema is too dark in Teams... cannot adjust it please fix this issue
Come on, MS, with the pandemic situtation this must be prio #1 !

I desperately need to be able to control brightness of my camera. Due to my home office location, the auto-brightness feature causes me to be a black shadow. I do not have Skype for Business any longer to take advantage of that work-around
we get a lot of complaints about this in pc support and there isnt' anything we can do so a patch or something would be appreciated
My MICROSOFT life cam cinema is too dark, no way to adjust? the skype and camera workaround do not work. Longing back to skype ....
When will MS correct this?
It would also be great if it was possible to move and even dock this "own camera view" in different positions. This would allow for multi-screen scenarios.
Let's consolidate our requests by gather more votes on below:
Found a very easy workaround.
Download ManyCams (free version), select your camera in there
Then go into Teams settings > Devices > Select 'ManyCam Virtual Webcam' from your camera dropdown (You will see a clear and a bright preview right away).
This also works with teams background. So win win. Hope this helps, Enjoy
The option to flip the camera image vertically is also needed.
We need the possibility to pass-true Logi Capture inTeams like we could in Skype. Or have at least all the control of the advanced Camera settings as is in Logi Capture. I get a lot of requests, questions and some frustrations from my Customers telling me that they can do this easy in Zoom.
