    Apple calls the camera built into the MBA a "FaceTime" camera instead of an iSight camera. What exactly does this mean?

    From my understanding, the available APIs from Apple only allow the iSight and FaceTime cameras to record at the same resolution (VGA 640x480). However, the iSight camera is capable of 1280x1020...does this mean the FaceTime camera isn't?

    Thanks for the help guys, it's the subject of my next YouTube video and demo.

    Yes, thank you for the link to that relatively worthless thread. Bitter much?

    I would like to know technically what is different between the two devices, if anything. Perhaps someone in a more helpful mood could respond here.
