I have no regrets I love my iSight. Its very usful not only for video chat but for taking short videos with iMovie.jsw said:It's a "C" rev - I doubt you'll regret getting your "B" revs. Probably nothing substantial.
I'll second that. I still can't get video to work with AIM 5.5/iChat and AIM is so shoddy anyway. iChat for PC would be brilliant.Porchland said:I'd like to see Apple take iChat/iSight to Windows XP. Apple's strategy with the Mac mini and the iPod line has been to make the product available and desirable to Windows users and using it as an entree to OSX.
I would buy an iSight for use with my PowerBook and buy one for family members that live three states away to live chat with us from their PC. Instead of zero iSight sales, iChat/iSight for Windows would account for two sales for a lot of Mac users that want to get someone else on board.
I think this is the next logical step.
No updating needed to support the new video codecthat's done by QuickTime. It just gets a standard (DV-like) signal in from Firewire and then converts it to anything you choose (or the program chooses, in the case of iChat).Jopling said:I'm almost positive that there was a bigger difference between A and B, I believe that B had slightly better image quality and didn't get as hot. With revision C coming out, they are going to update it to support the new video codec used in iChat. Looks like I'll be buying my second iSight.
My PC-using (argh!!) brother's complaint about using AIM to video chat with me is its small window (on his end). Does Trillian 3 Pro allow for a larger window on the PC end? Obviously, we iChatter's have full-screen capability.Cless said:No updating needed to support the new video codecthat's done by QuickTime.

As to chatting on the PC, AIM 5.5.is hit or miss, especially if behind a NAT router. Trillian 3 Pro seems to be better, but it's $25. I've successfully video-chatted between iChat and Trillian 3 Pro with several of my friends.
