Camera light indicators

Hello.

I had my first macbook pro several days ago. I just noticed, that there are two light indicators around the camera (left and right). Right indicator turns green when camera is working, but left is never changes. What does it for? I'm event don't sure its really intended to be 2 indicators, is it defective?

My macbook is 13" 8.1 (early 2011).

The one you see on the left is the ambient light sensor.

The thing on the left (as you look at it) is a light sensor. Place your hand over it and watch your screen get darker.
