    Does anyone have one of these for their iSight?

    Do you like it? Does it work well?

    I've read a few bad reviews, that's all...

    Its a good idea in theory. Videographers use these alot with shoots that require a lot of contrast. Like music videos, photo shoot scenes, stuff like that. You notice the circle of light reflecting in people's eyes. Pretty cool.

    It is god-awful. Horrible. Useless.

    I have one. It simultaneously blinds the user while somehow adding zero useful light. Perhaps, in a completely dark room, it allows someone to sense movement on the "other side" - but it does not do even a remotely good job of illuminating anything.

    Avoid it like the plague.

    OK, I'm going to cancel my order of one!

    How is the iSight for light, generally?

    I find the iSight to be incredibly good compared to other webcams I have used when in low light. Brighter is always better, but I was on holiday staying in a really gloomy small cottage and iSight could pick up good picture from the one light in the room, I would have expected my old PC webcam to not pick up a thing in the same conditions.
