    I've been looking around all afternoon and can't seem to find out how to get the built-in iSight on the new 15 inch April 2010 MacBook Pros to take pictures and record at 1280 by 1024.

    I've seen numerous places link me to Mac Daddy World, but that test app is only yielding 640 by 480.

    Many places have also recommended to use Quartz Composer, but my knowledge of the program is limited, and I was still only able to get a 640 by 480 stream.

    Anyone know the solution?:eek:

    I think it's lockout out of the full resolution by the API and only Quartz Composer can get all of it. I played with Quartz Composer for sometime once trying to get it. I never could figure it out.

    Open QuickTime X > File > New Movie Recording > Hit the drop down menu to the left of full screen button in the video play controls > Select Maximum video quality

    You can also do this in QuickTime 7 if you have the Pro version, only have to change the quality settings in the preferences.
