Hiya. I'm using my iSight camera on my MBP with a special Mac software and I am filming the clouds outside, but I noticed today after filming for 2 hours that the sun had overpowered the video clip and you couldn't see the clouds because it was so bright. How can I minimize the sun exposure so you can just see the clouds?
QUOTE Thanks

I you haven't already...try doing the recording at a time of day when the sun is behind you (or behind the iSight camera).

I suppose you could try a neutral density filter. I doubt any are made for the built in iSight though.

When asking questions, post the version of your software. You'll receive better answers.

Please post your results to the thread as it is good feedback.

You could always cut a piece of a gel to knock down the light a bit and tape it/ prop it up on the cam.
