I hate to burst everyone's bubble, but iSight doesn't have a native 640x480 CCD in it. It's upscaling a 320x240 native resolution to a 640x480 signal. That's why the image is lossy and noisy at "full" resolution.

I think it's shameful that iSight is masqueraded by Apple as a 640x480 camera when it isn't. It's in the same league with the lousy iBOT, which does the same thing.
