I am trying to disengage the internal camera(iSight), so I can connect an external camera....how do I do this?
I am trying to connect a Sony EX-3 camera, currently using USB....do I need firewire?

Please send your answer to my e-mail address....

If you want to stream video you will need to connect it via firewire. According to the Sony webpage for the EX-3, you can only transfer MPEG-2 video off the camera using USB, streaming and HDV transfer need to be done via firewire.

You can disable the internal iSight camera using this little script:
