One of the annoying things about your isight cam on your macbook is there are no controls system prefs
to get controls you need to buy a 3rd party app use iglasses (only $9.95), you can try the trial but it nags the hell out of you to buy.

You can also use it on most websites that use a flash based webcam player as well as most messaging software such as yahoo.  Basically, it just works!
