I was struggling with my Microsoft Lifecam Studio webcam because it was not working properly.

I have a Retina MacBook Pro 15″ (late 2013) and I test the camera with the PhotoBooth app on Mavericks. All I was able to see was a super burned white-colored image.
After researching online for solutions I came across this program on the App store that costs USD 8. I must say, it was worth it, because from the moment I installed it, the problem was solved. Now I am able to use my camera without any troubles.
Its a little bit strange that Apple doesn’t support this camera which costs around USD 80 (Its not a cheap one) and the idea of having another App always running just make something I think should be supported by OS X bothers me a little bit. But well, I guess this is part of the Apple vs Microsoft war, at least I don’t have to purchase another webcam now.
The App name is: WebCam Settings they also have a blog here if you want to get more info.
Tip: I had to change one configuration in the Advanced tab of the program settings. I had to select the 50Hz option to eliminate the flickering I was having with 60 Hz.
