does anyone have one ? and what do you think of it ?
Well, they say the camera adds 10 pounds...StarbucksSam said:Honestly, I love my iSight. I just don't like how it makes me look - it really does make me look fatter than I am.
You are the one and only person I've ever noticed who likes the iLight. I got one and think it's a complete waste of money. Maybe not if you're in a pitch-black cave and/or want to look like a ghost....aksmax said:A Griffin iLight is great and I think I've seen them for under $30 lately.
iGlasses is a cheap and great program that fixes this, it allows you total control of the camera, its great reallyjsw said:I love the iSight, and the built-in mic is second to none, but Apple's default brightness is set far too low. The iSight can function very nicely in low light, but most users on iChat look like they're in a dungeon due to the way the iSight's brightness is set. There are programs to fix this, but I expect the next-gen iSight to function better in lower light.
there are apps out there that are only like $10 that will let you adjust the brightness, so unless you need/want the other features of a DV camera the iSight is still a good valuebousozoku said:The only true remedy for these problems is to buy a DV camcorder for a few hundred more. This is the main reason I haven't bought an iSight. While I think it's great for the price, I think a DV cam would be a better deal overall.
Agreed. When I hook up my five+ year old Sony DV camcorder, the picture is dramatically better than that of the iSight, even adjusted with iGlasses. No shame for the iSight, just a bigger lens, etc. on the camcorder.bousozoku said:The only true remedy for these problems is to buy a DV camcorder for a few hundred more.
