Why did I get a webcam again? šŸ˜‚

Posted on Jan 8, 2021

I just got a Logitech C920 webcam to use for video calls at work. Testing it out has shown me that (1) my office looks awful, and (2) I look awful. šŸ˜…

I thought the default webcam settings made me look like Emperor Palpatine, but an image search soon revealed that Emperor Palpatine looks much, much better than I do. šŸ˜‚

I did find out how to adjust the white balance to make me look less cadaverous. However, for now at least, Iā€™m going to apply the built-in black-and-white filter to my video stream. I wonder if that will be annoying to others, but I like the simplicity of it.
