I've just bought a Microsoft LifeCam HD-5000. It is supposed to work in high definition, but in my machine it doesn't get resolution higher than 160x120. I've already tried to edit several properties in the Microsoft LifeCam software, but it does not work.
I have the original CD and I used it to setup the camera (unplugged from the usb port). I just didn't install those Windows Essentials (Movie Maker, Messanger, photo edit, etc. those stuff will have no use for me). I've tried a software update, but no update was available.
The curious thing is that I have a Microsoft LifeCam VX-1000 and it works fine. I can get resolutions up to 640x480 with the same software to capture the images.
Can you help me on that?
Also, one other thing. I bought this camera because I'm working on a project that uses the camera as input for a video processing algorithm. I am able to get the input from the VX-1000, but the HD-5000 returns a "camera must be set to RGB24 format" error. I don't know if this is the proper forum to ask questions about software development, but I'd be glad if you could help me on this issue too. But if you don't, solving the first problem will be terrific
I'm using a default HP-Z600 workstation with Windows 7.
Thanks a lot for your attention
