    Hello. I have a 17" MBP (2010 model). I forgot to bring a camera and used the MBP's camera to take photos. I noticed that the photos looked very bad especially when I took the pictures in the dark. It seems that I cannot turn on/off the flash nor zoom-in/out the camera via Photo Booth. Is there any application/utility that allows me to set these features? Photo Booth does not seem to allow me to change the settings. Thanks.

    Given the camera is really set up for a web cam, low pixel count limited lens configuration. I'd say there's really no way to adjust it. All I can recommend is to see if there's anything out on the MAS.

    Given the position of the camera on the laptop, there's really not too much call to make it a more general purpose camera AFAIK
