Two things, I got webcam model C920 and I get harassed by russian security services both online and in person.
As a result of this combination of issues, I have reason to believe that the Russians hacked my computer and modified the C920 driver or something equivalent to that effect, and produced this feature where facial features are overly lit up, eg. face appears bright and glowing and you can't see in detail, which I think can be called Iso-lighting, but not sure if that's the correct use of the term.
In anycase I wanted to inquire if this is a common problem in the C920 model. I suspect not, because my previous camera had this problem, and I bought C920 precisely to avoid the same problem that the cheaper model (of another manufacturer too, had). I've been using this model for ~100 hours, and in that time this bug did not exist.
But now it does, the same bug I had in my previous cam model. Knowing that this kind of nuisance would be fairly typical of the kind of every day troubles the Russians tend to arrange to me (this might sound incredulous, but unfortunately that is the truth of the matter), and to resolve whether that is the case I'd need to find out if this is a common problem with the camera model. However given 100 hours of recording without this problem occurring is statistically very significant, it seems already quite likely that is not the explanation.
