For video conferences I bought the Logitech C270 HD webcam. The setup is really easy, plug-and-play. Plug the camera into a free USB 2.0 port, and Windows 10 recognize them immediatly. A short check with the Windows 10 “Camera” app showed, the picture quality is totally fine and the framerate is fast enough.
But one thing bothered me. The image is horizontally flipped. My first thought was, change that in the Windows settings. Well, there were no such settings. My second thought was, maybe Logitech has a tool to change that. Yes, they have a tool
Logitech Camera Settings, no, there is no setting to flip the image.
Then I searched the internet even more, and found out, that Logitech had another software
Logitech WebCam Software. And screenshots showed, exactly the setting I wanted:
Logitech abonded the software, but Softpedia has them.
What you get is the file
lws280.exe. If you run that, a setup dialog pops up, and if you’re not careful, a lot of garbage is installed. So don’t do that. Just extract the file with 7-Zip, go into the
Drivers folder and install
LWS_Driver_Installer_x86.exe, depending on your system.
And now the fun part, this driver comes with a tool, the
LogiDPPApp.exe. And that tool is just the camera settings in the screenshot and nothing else. Jackpot.
- Download the
