    Anyone know what the MP quality is on the built-in iSite in the new iMacs? Just curious how it compares to the MBPs or a general standalone web camera.

    The iSight on the SR Macbook Pros have a 1.3 MP Spec; pretty good but you can get external webcams with 2.0 MPs I believe. The new iMac iSight should be the same as the SR Macbook Pros.

    Actually, the MBP has an iSight MP of 0.3 MP. Unless they updated it in a recent model (I have 1st gen), then its resolution is still 640x480.

    I'm really curious to know what it is. http://www.apple.com/imac/isight.html claims that the new cam is high-res.

    Wow- 1.3MP! Are you sure? I would've thought that to make headlines being such an upgrade.

    Read again, Santa Rosa MBP is 1.3MP. Older MBP's are 640x480.

    Load up quicktime and get recording, the video is 1.3MP at 25/30fps.

    Wish I could tell you, but mine is non-functional. Neither OS X or Windows XP can find it. :mad:

    Open System Profiler, select USB, then select Built-in iSight. If your Product ID is 0x8502, you have the new 1.3 MP camera. The old 0.3 MP camera was 0x8501.

    In any case, my 24" has a 0x8502. I suspect all new iMacs do as well.
