Logitech QuickCam Pro 9000
After installation, the software that comes with the camera works well and can capture HD-like video very well. However, when using a third party capture application, size seems to be stuck at 320x240 pixels. Holy crap!

Works! and has many interesting controls. This is the app to use!
- Can capture video
- Can capture audio – GNOME sound mixer panel applet can control audio input level and it sounds good. Mute works too!
- Additional controls – including focus – are enabled after running guvcview -a as root once
- Can be run in control mode only so that the video is captured by another application by guvcview is used to adjust settings

Autofocus is built into the wintendo drives, thus does not work in Linux.
Q: How can we manually control focus in Linux?
