My Logitech C525 webcam is a bit old, I give you, but it says it supports macOS up to the latest version and also have some installs on the official site.

The problem is that it's not "autofocusing", so everything looks kind of blurry. If I put my hand VERY CLOSE, then you can see it very detailed. It was working fine with my Windows 10 machine, so I can only guess I am missing some sort of driver or software or setting here in MacOS to make it work.

I'm running MacOS Monterey 12.0.1.

  • Is it still working fine on another machine?

Logitech's Mac support was next to non-existent until the past few years, when they've had a good catch up. They claim only basic UVC support via Apple's native drivers for a lot of older cameras - see Logitech FAQ - UVC webcam support for Mac OS 10.4.9 and later

There is now a Logitech Capture app released in the past couple of years which does work with my C920, but the C525 isn't mentioned. Might be worth a try, just in case. At least it's free.

Prior to that, I used Webcam Settings for many years. The info does mention the C525 specifically, but it doesn't look like it's been updated in a couple of years & I've never run it on Big Sur or Monterey, so idk if it's still OK. I'd check Logi's own app first.
