<is this thing on>

This was gifted to me, and am finally using a computer that has a built-in camera.

Before I resign the iSight to a dumpster I thought I'd check to see if anyone can use it. It did work last time I tried it. Free, but pay shipping from MA, US only.

There was only the one standalone iSight camera. All later ones were built-in.

FW400 connection, 640x480 @ 30fps, 24-bit color, stereo audio. Originally sold for $149. Works back to 10.2.5

Totally correct! I thought there was an 800 version for some reason.

Maybe that's what I'll end up doing... but someone from here gifted it to me, so I thought to see if anyone here could use it. @shifuiman maybe?

Before tossing old stuff out, you might want to see if groups like these folks would want it.

I'll take it if it's still available.
Sell or send me your vintage Mac things if you don't want them.

The isight? great! PM me your shipping address, and it would be nifty if you'd paypal me back the shipping charges afterward.
