Not worth the money!

John Coleman, Amazon

  • Summary: I love Apple stuff so I was excited to buy this cam. It worked great for awhile but then just started shutting off and my Imac wouldnt even recognize it. Apple doesnt support this cam anymore and this problem of it just shutting down is well documented in Apple forums. Its a complete lemon.

Do not purchase this product if you are running higher than OS 10.3

  • Summary: This product will only run capably on a 32 bit processor. The newer Macs are 64 bit and use a Firewire 800 port. The firewire 400 to 800 adapters aren't reliable with this camera. I tried two different ones.

Make sure you have the right hardware. Very limited.

  • Summary: I have to go with the thumbdown people. I bought an Isight on impulse, to use with my Mac. Looks very nice. Should have checked more carefully. So, to use it I need Ichat AV. OK, so another $130 later to upgrade to Panther, I have Ichat AV. Oh, only other Ichat AV users can talk to me.

Look is Not everythink

E. Yaakoube "~~ May Peace be upon You ~~", Amazon
19 April 2004
  • Summary: (...)I Chat AV can't talk to any other videoconferencing system, though, and Apple bundles none of the usual Webcam software with the iSight. You can't manually adjust the brightness, the color balance, the white balance, or the contrast.

Apple bombs

Luis de Avendaño, Amazon
21 December 2003
  • Summary: I have been a faithful Apple user for many years. Nothing as awful as this has ever been produced by Apple. The picture quality is terrible: very dark and gothic. And don't even try to get a resolution over 320x240; it just seems to blow up a small size and the pixellation is pretty rough.
