You know what’s really screwed up? AFAIK, no one has actually verified for sure that the iSight camera lights on MacBooks don’t have some kind of backdoor in the chip to turn the light off while it’s recording.
I’ve search everywhere including iFixit and nada. I want to see a full breakdown of the camera housing and a close study of the actual chip. If you search around the Internet there’s only hearsay that the light is “wired” to the camera and is impossible to disable. Is it really?
