Have had my Vega for a week now and am pretty impressed with the hardware at the price-point.

People have complained about the quality of the camera image, relatively immaterial as no skype and most VC apps don't play too well.

I did notice last night that when you use the camera a blue glow comes from the gap at the top of the screen and bezel, and thought to myself, ooooh. It would appear there is a blue LED, I suppose to let you know the camera is active. It is hidden behind the screen bezel, but I'd put good money that some of the bright blue light is reflected back from the inside of the bezel into the lens of the camera, causing reduced contrast and colour desaturation.

So, what to try? Access the blue LED and either disable or cover with black paint. Maybe it will improve colour and contrast?

I've only had the Vega a week, so am still not ready to get the thing opened up, is anyone else ready to have a look?

Only a guess, and lets be honest, it's never going to be an HD camera!

Anything to improve this mediocre build powerhouse for free eh!

John
