Hello, I am wondering which has the better FaceTime camera: the iPad Pro or the MacBook Pro? I sold my MacBook Pro a year ago and cannot compare the two. Just curious. Thanks

LOL, if only Apple made an effort with the MacBook Pro webcam. It’s pathetic. It has a 1 MP camera that does 720p video... same camera since 2011.

Pretty much any recent iPad or iPhone FaceTime camera will be far better for video calls.

seriously for macbook pro, the 720p camera will not be a bummer.

it is more likely people to do face time call on their iphones/ipads than on macbook pro.

iPad is miles better.
Actually the MacBook Pro webcam even though it stayed at 720p for years now, was better back on the old retina MacBook Pro form factor (2012-2015) than the current 2016+ ones. I compared my 2013 13“ MBP Facetime camera with my 2018 15“ one and the 2013 one looks soo much better, I couldn’t actually believe that what a downgrade it is.
But yeah, ipad is beating both on camera quality no contest

Hi! First of all, sorry for my English!

It seems that here are people that are pro in Mac. So, I would like to ask if someone can help me with a problem.

I can't use the camera of my MacBook Pro. All the programs I ran which uses the camera says the same thing - There is no camera...

I've tried to use the terminal with the commands:

sudo killall VDCAssistant

sudo killall AppleCameraAssistant

Don't work!



I've tried to shutdown and restart taping command+Alt+P+R

Don't work!

I need to do some videoconference meetings ando don't know what to do.



Any help? Please!!!
