I assume you removed the sticker that was on the lens of the camera sensor to protect it during shipping?

Can you try to get the Webcam Settings app from the app store and see whether fiddling with those might help? In particular, try to switch to manual exposure and manual gain and then try to crank the exposure and gain values up?

Yeaps i did remove the sticker, ok i will take a look at the apps thanks!
just posted a new MicroSD image, 1.0c, which allows for a wider range of automatic gain control, can you please download and try it to see if that works better for you? It is the new 'latest MicroSD image' at http://jevois.org/start
