    In Photo Booth the picture looks fuzzy and grainy

    I took the picture using the MBA the dimensions are 640x480 and the file size is 72kb

    Can someone take a picture with a MBP to compare

    Cheers
    Gary

    it varies i can get really bad if your under low light
    try going outside or somewhere where there bright lights

    the isight is not high def or anywhere close

    it's like a cellphone camera pretty much

    You are so right. I do a lot of videos using iMovie with the iSight and I can go for a few days without a shave and I still look clean shaven. Nice plus for a low res cam.:D

    I use video iChat quite a bit, usually via an old iSight camera mounted on top of my 30" Apple cinema Display. Excited about the built in camera on my new MBA, I tried it the very first day I had it. I don't know about PhotoBooth, but for iChat this camera is head and shoulders better than my old iSight. The people I chat with noticed it right away.

    as like many others behind me that have played around with photobooth on day 1 of receiving their new pieces of kit, i was taken aback by the quality as well.

    but then again, if you're in a jam, you'll be happy to know your isight camera was waiting for you for the longest time. :p
