Latitude 5290 integrated webcam blinking/flashing in ubuntu

My integrated camera works but blinks/flashes (like if I am dancing on a disco..) and displays only B/W images. The red led on the side of the camera (indicating camera activity) flashes as well.

This is independent of the application, e.g. on Skype, Cheese, etc.

I'm on a Dell Latitude 5290 with Ubuntu 18.04

sudo lshw:
