    Specs:
    Mid-2012 MBP (16GB, 1TB HD), Monoprice 24-inch second monitor, iPhone 5s 32GB, iPad Air 2 64GB
    Not sure what you mean by open ... activate maybe?

    Anyway, the camera can only be in use with one app at a time. So if Photo Booth is saying you can't use the camera because it's already in use, the first thing I'd ask myself is "did I *actually properly quit* iChat or Skype or any other app that uses the camera?"

    That usually solves the problem.
