    built-in iSight vs. external iSight
    I just got a new Macbook a few weeks ago and I am unimpressed with the quality of the built-in iSight. I find that that images it portrays are grainy although you can see the images without being "choppy". I had an external iSight for my mac mini and I loved it. It was absolutely fabulous and the picture quality was always crystal clear without any graininess.

    Has anyone else noticed the quality difference or am I simply being too picky?

    MacBook(W) 2Gb, 2Ghz & Bluetooth Mighty Mouse, Now my Apple glows colours, Red Apple and Green Leaf.
    Mines grainy too but to be fair the camera is very small to that of the external iSight.
    Plus the iSight uses a 1/4" CCD! I very much doubt the MacBooks is that size.

    Good light levels stop the grain effect but I understand your point as oon as light levels differ from that of bright then the grains do appear.
