If you install the 'xawtv' package, it will install the v4lctl binary which lets you expose and/or set the attributes for the v4l device.

v4lctl [-c device] list will give you an overview of the attributes of the camera.

To change exposure, simply run 'v4lctl setattr Exposure 1500' (or whatever you want to change it to)

Can you help with this problem?
