Not everyone seems to be satisfied with the operation of the camera of the new MacBook Air introduced by Apple this year and this is being demonstrated on Apple's discussion boards. In addition, some important media within the Apple world are beginning to conduct surveys to find out the opinion with the camera of users who have these Macs.
The truth is that from Apple nothing has been commented and they have not commented on these possible problems of the camera of the new MacBook Air. According to some of the users of these devices, the camera would offer a worse video quality than 480p, while Apple advertises it as HD 720p.
Apple advertises it as a 720p FaceTime HD camera
The company has put in the specifications that it is a 720p FaceTime HD camera and some users (a few pages in the Apple discussion forums) are saying that the quality offered by this camera is not what Apple says by any means.
Some of the complaints are constant and there is also no evidence that this cannot be real since seeing several of the images that are emitted from these new equipment of the Cupertino company It seems true that it is not the advertised camera or that it has some kind of problem when there is little light. We personally cannot comment directly on it since we do not have the equipment in question, but we will investigate about it and in any case we will try to carry out a test from an Apple store or authorized reseller to have our own experience on the complaints.
Anyway, the issue of Apple cameras on Macs is for you to look at it and that is because equipment that is so expensive cannot keep such "bad" cameras. We say it for example with the case of 12-inch MacBooks which has a fairly high price and rides a 480p.
