setpwc is a program that can set and list various settings of Philips (and compatibles) WebCams with the 'PWC chipset'. If ioctls-commands fails, you have to upgrade to kernel 2.4.21 or more recent.
Here are some key features of "setpwc":
dump current settings
store/restore settings in nonvolatile RAM
restore factory settings
set compression preference
set automatic gain control
set shutter speed
red/blue-balance when white balance mode set to manual
set automatic white balance mode speed and delay
set led on- and off-time
set electronic sharpness
set backlight compensation
set antiflicker mode
set noise reduction mode
set pan/tilt/zoom (Logitech QuickCam Orbit/Sphere)
What's New in This Release:
Certain resolution and framerate combinations need to be set at the same time or else the PWC chipset refuses them.
With some compilers, setpwc would end up in an infinite loop.
The serial number of the webcam is now displayed.
A man page was added.
The -d option can now be anywhere in the command line.
