    I have a mid-2010 iMac 21.5" which has the built in iSight Camera. How does one adjust its zoom, up/down and lighting adjustments? If wondering, I tried 3rd party iGlasses program (which does zoom, lighting) but doesn't allow up/down adjustments. And, one must pay for this 3rd party program. Is there a way to change iSight camera setting for free???

    thanks.

    What do you mean by up and down? The camera doesn't tilt - you have to tilt the screen.

    Darn. Was hoping this feature has a software adjustment to charge its aim - like the Logitech Cameras - used on Win xx systems.

    What about zoom and lighting adjustments? Or is that natively fixed as well?

    They don't actually zoom either, but you can have 3rd-party apps that use digital zoom.

    Lighting and exposure can be adjusted using 3rd-party tools as well.

    Is there any FREE 3rd party tools? I don't understand why one must pay for software to perform "setting" changes. Even Logitech comes with free software - with their physical cameras.

    thanks.
