First off, I am a college student and have just now gotten around to my foreign language credits (opted for Arabic), and I was really interested in recording my lectures. I am mostly concerned with Audio, however I was thinking if video is an option, why not? So, first off... Is the iSight's internal microphone good enough to capture clear audio from 15-feet away, direct line of sight? Secondly, would the iSight make it so I would be able to read overhead presentations from 15-feet? Finally, I have been doing some checking and have found that the only real option avaliable to record video from the iSight locally is to use iMovie. As I have not done any experimentation in there, is there a way to capture directly into something like MPEG-4 so that I am not dealing with taking up 40GB per hour for uncompressed? Thank you for your assistance.
