    i sight prefs? Disable auto-focus
    Hi all,

    Recently bought an isight for use in a video installation I am building with Pure Data. I'm looking for pointers on a number of things:

    - What res is the camera running at?
    - Is there a prefs pane for altering frame rate etc?
    - Can the auto focus/white balance be disabled?

    I know some of these settings can be tinkered with via ichat, but is there a way to make system-wide changes to the isight settings? Maybe some 3rd party software or something.

    Er...I have tried that, but thanks for the tip?!

    I could only find details out iglasses, but that only seems to add settings to specific apps, whereas I would like to make system wide settings if poss. At the moment, the question I would most like answered if anyone has an idea is what res the isight runs at?

    There's no pref pane to set up anything about the iSight, any settings that can be changed are specific to the app that uses the iSight. There are no system-wide settings that can be set, except with iGlasses.

    Resolution is VGA (640x480) with a frame rate up to 30fps, depending on your internet bandwith...

    This information can easily be found at:

    The best place to get any hardware specs is mostly from the manufacturer. :cool:
