    I was in compusa tonight looking for an isight. They had none in stock but I was told that iSight version 2 would be in the store by next week. Anyone know anything about this?

    Cant see a new iSight coming out, he probably means that the ones with the new magnetic stand included in the box are coming

    Treat it as a rumor of course but there has been pure speculation that there will be an iSight Mark 2 this year. Sorts of features people would like to see include a wide angle / zoom to allow it to be close but to also include multiple parties. A built in light would be useful to some as well.

    We can guess that its likely that Apple have given this some thought given Tiger will support 4 parties speaking, making this a much more exiciting personal and useful business tool...

    My order at Apple.com for an iSight said 2 to 3 weeks, and it has now been 3 weeks and no shipment When I called, they said it would be another 1 to 2 weeks but I would be 'impressed' by what I received.

    I thought the rumor about the iSight V2 was just new mounts for the new studio displays...

    It would seem that if a new iSight version is coming that it will be announced at MacWorld Paris. Although it does sound very plausible the the version 2 is the adapter for the new displays. Isn't the adapter available now?

    That sounds good. For the majority of people, the iSight is still overpriced for what you get.

    With the new version of iChat coming out, though...

    I'd just be happy with a firmware update that keeps iSight from messing up my iPod.

    So I really want an iSight. I just want to use it for casual chatting and maybe recording a small video here and there. The quality now seems great and will only improve with tiger next year. Do you think I should buy one now or wait until the expo?

    Am I selfish by hoping there isn't a new iSight on its way?
    (Note I only bought my iSight a couple of weeks ago.. then bough the SightLight)

    iSight V2 ? - Maybe, Just Maybe

    I am a real Apple impulse buyer - BT KB being latest, despite not really "needing" one. The iSight was to be the next new purchase - most of the local shops near both work and home are "temporarily" out of stock - very irregular unless something new is coming out soon - especially when you consider the stock situation on, for example the iMac before the announcement of new ones in September. So I am waiting (though it hurts SOOOOO much not to spend the cash burning a hole in my pocket !)

    Production Suite

    No new iSights - just the Production Suite and news that Motion is shipping. Maybe by the Paris Expo :)

    The Apple store is still listing a 2 to 3 week delay My order placed July 31 still says shipping on or about August 26, 2004.

    Many local area stores here in SoCal do not have them in stock.

    These are all signs that supply is limited. Often, but not always, this means that a rev model is in the wings.

    Of course, this does not coincide with the Apple Expo Paris. Maybe they will still do a Tuesday release on August 24.

    If you put any credence in MOSR, they talk about upcoming iSight models with better video and power usage.

    What is clear is that the current model is becoming scarce and its been a while and with new iChat in Tiger, we can only hope for an update. At the least a cool new mount for the new Apple displays.
