    Hi,

    I'd like to write some code to capture images from a web cam.

    I found opencv and videocapture.


    However it seems, that the python opencv API is quite limited.
    I don't seem to be able to set all parameters (focus,contrast,exposure,.
    .. . ) of a web cam via opencv.


    Is there any python module, that would allow me to query / configure
    such settings?
