I dropped my iSight in december and it wouldn't turn on again, so I thought I'd go ahead and take it apart and post a picture of all the parts on our weblog before I throw it away. Here it is. In the center, there is the imaging chip which is quite a big chip. The one in the new iMac and MacBook Pro must be smaller to fit. The whole thing is a marvel to look at. Very cleverly put together. I think it is a good camera for the price. Made in Thailand, of course, as it is very labour intensive to assemble, I assume.
