Hello everyone.

The Mixed Reality Forums here are no longer being used or maintained.

There are a few other places we would like to direct you to for support, both from Microsoft and from the community.

The first way we want to connect with you is our mixed reality developer program, which you can sign up for at https://aka.ms/IWantMR.

For technical questions, please use Stack Overflow, and tag your questions using either hololens or windows-mixed-reality.

If you want to join in discussions, please do so in the HoloDevelopers Slack, which you can join by going to https://aka.ms/holodevelopers, or in our Microsoft Tech Communities forums at https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/mixed-reality/ct-p/MicrosoftMixedReality.

And always feel free to hit us up on Twitter @MxdRealityDev.

Better frontal camera?


I'm experimentering with a feature that requires me to read quite small bar codes. Unfortunately the frontal camera on the hololens is to low res so the bars get blurred together. We've tried passing the images through filters and such but the problem is that the base image is to blurry with the small barcodes (bigger bar codes works fine).

Is there a new version of the Hololens coming soon? (I know, I know you can't say) or is there a way to connect a better webcam to the Hololens? The micro USB port doesn't seem to work as a USB hub.


  • Hi,

    Have you tried to use different resolutions? (1408x792 or 2048x1152 for example)
