CamParam is a simple command-line utility for Windows to view and set camera properties like exposure, brightness and gain.


For years I have wanted a CLI tool to configure camera settings before live-streaming, but could never find one that quite did the job. I made two initial attempts in C# using CameraControlLib and then DirectShowNET directly, but was frustrated by the large executable size required by .NET. In the end, I rewrote everything in C++ for a much leaner binary.


The basis of this program is heavily influenced by CommandCam.
