02-03-2008, 09:39 AM #1Problems with PhotoBooth and iSight camera
Well guys i hope i had post this in the right place since this is my 1st post ever.
Before anything else, My name is Michael and i´m from Portugal and this is the first days on my Macbook 2.2 with leopard. Also excuse some grammar mistakes
1st i got a problem with my isight camera and photo booth because i supose that isight camera should not always be on ? i´m i right ? because my isight camera is always on even if i close all programs that could be using it she is still on.
2nd when i open my photo booth (with the camera on -> green UP) the images keeps black, i try to take some pictures and stuff to see if anything changes... but nop... always the same black. The "flash" seems to work but the image doesn´t came up.
Thanks for the time and hope you can help me out

Hi Nuno and welcome to Mac Forums!
I am a little confused - the MacBook doesn't have a flash, so I am assuming you are just saying that it does appear to take the picture?
What kind of lighting do you have where you are taking the pictures? The iSight is not particularly good in low light. Try it in a well lit room and see if that fixes things. Also, you might wish to try out iGlasses, a third party preference panel for the iSight. Get iGlasses at:
This lets you adjust things like the sensitivity, the contrast and so on. With iGlasses, I find I can use my iSight quite well in low lighting. Hopefully by changing some of the settings you may be able to get good pictures.
So, try taking pictures in a well lit room, and try adjusting the iSight via iGlasses if you need to take pictures in low lighting.
Good luck, and again, WELCOME!My Macs: iMac 27" 3.4 GHz, Mac Pro 3.2 GHz, PowerMac G5 Quad 2.5 GHz, G4 Cube with 1.2 GHz Upgrade

Thank you very much for the welcome message mac57.
well the problem still.
the integrated iSight doesn't work any more. All I get is a black picture (with iChat) or green picture (with Photo Booth). No error message saying the iSight is already in use. The green light on the right of the camera lights when expected. but still no picture, also some of the effects are missing in the list.
I had already tried everything that i could found online, like cleaning chaches, made sure about millions of colors on the displays and a lot of other stuff.
but nothing new...
