Apple iSightThe PowerPage received a note from a reliable source about a successor to the iSight FireWire camera being developed in Apple’s secret skunk works in Cupertino. Details are sketchy, but one can assume that the new iSight camera will have more features to better work with the H.264/AVC video technology coming in Mac OS 10.4 (a.k.a. “Tiger”). H.264/AVC, iChat AV and Mac OS 10.4 will allow you to video conference with up to three people or audio conference with up to nine more people.
According to our sources the new iSight camera will eventually replace the Revision B camera (part number M8817LL/B) that quietly began replacing the original model (model number M933OLL/A) back in July. For those that missed it, the Rev. B iSight camera featured an internal component reorganization, a slightly thicker camera barrel (producing less heat), revised packaging, updated user manual and new mounting hardware that will let users attach the camera to Apple’s new Aluminum LCD displays.
