“Macintosh developers are a curious, experimental lot. Give them a piece of hardware like Apple’s ISight video camera and they let their imaginations run wild inventing novel ways to use it. The $149 ISight has great image quality and works seamlessly with OS X Macs, but the price seems pretty steep just for video chatting,” Rebecca Freed writes for PC World.
“I went in search of alternative ways to use the ISight and found a wider variety of uses than I expected. Here are four of my favorites. All of them are fun–and all of them make the ISight investment pay off. With the exception of IStill, these programs work with other FireWire video cameras, such as typical digital camcorders,” Freed writes.
