    can i change the resolution of the isight built into my Macbook pro? cause the quality looked pretty bad compared to the computers in the Apple store? what is the isight resolution if it cannot be changed? i took a picture and made it a bit bigger for like a webpage or sumthing and it looked fuzzy and stuff.

    Newer MB/MBPs have a higher resolution camera, iirc. If it doesn't look good when you resize it, don't resize it.

    You can't upgrade the resolution the camera puts out, as you'd have to upgrade the camera itself.

    Native res is 640x480. Quality is pretty decent by webcam standards, but do bear in mind that it's not really intended as a stills camera, so quality isn't going to be that great - especially in less than ideal lighting conditions. As a general rule, the better the lighting, the better the photo - as soon as light levels start to drop, the image will get fuzzier as the built-in image enhancements trades resolution for visibility.
