Please let me have your expert feedback or ideas for improvement.

You are not parsing the [Rows] in [image Array] correctly if my memory serves correctly. From the picture it seems that you are for example taking every other pixel,which will give you a compressed stubby image.

How do I fix it?

The problem resides in the Driver that you are using. You should ask the creator of the driver. Another thing I can think of is playing the bit count, 8, 16, 14, 24 ....

if you can not change the driver, you can rearrange the array yourself as I can see that you are getting the image array and saving it to file. Remember the Array is in RGB. and use ArrayInterleave and ArrayDecimate.

You can also check what is the webcam's color space, is it RGB or YUV or any other format. That will also affect your output image data array. You can play to select RGB format (Logitech usually always provide this format), see if results are better.
