Pinout of the iMac's built in iSight.

Does anyone know the pinout of the camera so I can make a USB cam out of it? Here's the situation, I have a Mac mini and an Acer Monitor, along with an isight out of a dead iMac. I want to put the camera on top of the monitor (not in, on) and plug it in to a USB port. Thanks for any help.

I have made a couple of these out of Isight G5 Camera's

Block Image

Cut off the little connector to reveal the usb cables on the short wires connected to the video board..

these are standard usb colors and can be joined to a longer usb cable.

That's cool. I did not know that would be possible. ++

Thanks, I haven't taken the camera out yet so I was hoping it was simple.

It would be nice if you could do a tear down of this and post it to iFixit. I would love to do this. + vote from me.

I might build one of these into my westinghose display, looks really cool

or an even better idea, build it into an apple ADC studio display, it has built in USB, will these run on USB 1.1?

On the Imac intel my wires broke from the board, I was able to figure out the colors and locations. ZT1 is Hot "Red", ZT2 is Black "Neutral", ZT3 is "White" and ZT4 is Green! If your wires come undone and need resoldered this will help!

For iMac 2007 24” Aluminum, the connections are:

USB -> isight

I just connected my one and it runs perfectly at Windows 10 :)

I followed this tutorial when converting a dead 27 inch iMac to a 27 inch cinema display, and managed to connect the iMac's internal isight through USB... the problem is that I want to use it with a MBP in clamshell mode, and the USB isight is recognized as "internal isight", and disabled when the MBP lid is closed!

Any solution to this problem?

@drmac I'm also curious, as I too have taken on the project of converting my 2013 iMac into an external display, and would like to repurpose as many other of the components as I can.

For the iSight Camera on an iMac 27" Mid-2010, I found that the wire colouring matches the colouring of the SD Card reader as mentioned in this thread: https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/apple...

hi…. can anyone explain how to successfully solder those hairs of copper? despite the flux, it acts as it is pushing the solder away (floating?) … maybe i don't remove the insulation correctly (i melt it), but i don't see an other way…. help please!!!!

Use a razor to lightly scrape away the insulation and then trim back the shielding and carefully remove the inner insulation and expose the few hairs inside and good luck soldering from there. Steady hands daniel san

If you have different cable colors in your 2011 iMac 27 inch (like I do).

This is the connection for usb:

USB black cable to camera black cable.

USB cable red to camera blue(ish) cable.

USB cable white to camera green cable.

USB cable green to camera light gray cable. (look closely)
