    I have 2 Logitech webcams. but this is a windows thing. JUST SPENT TWO HOURS TROUBLESHOOTING THESE CAMS. Now I’ve figured it out but this is the only post I’ve seen across the net with the right answer. also use the older version of this software 2.8 and nothing else and I’ve had zero issues with either camera afterwards. uninstalled and tried other software and didn’t work. something with the newer software giving you cropping and zoom options etc. i don’t think these cameras were designed for those features so the software tells windows it is capable of more than it is. So when windows tries to use the cameras with any other software you run into issues. like only doing 4:3 resolutions. also restart you PC after every driver uninstall or install. BEFORE YOU TRY IT WITH SOFTWARE. AND DON’T CHANGE USB PORTS. windows 10 and cameras don’t like being moved after drivers are installed or maybe a restart will fix but anytime i change USB ports after device is setup i get issues.
