Um.  I think the place to start with a request like this is for something "simple", like a <input type=file> control which was specific to image capture.  <input type="file" capture="still"> would be one thought.  I'm sure many many others on the web have already discussed this at some length.

I don't think there's anything very actionable about this bug as the feature request is so vague.

a request to Doug & Chaals who have some understanding of the issue.

#5653025 iSight internal: URI & unique local URI
it would be helpful if there was a simple way to link to the internal iSight
web pages and dashboard widgets could then involve the user.
this would require a simple unique uri that was common to all macs such as:
file:///iSight.jpg or similar

and also a variation for serving on the web similar to:
but more likely

#5653030 iSight internal: motion detection
keyword: Accessibility
gesture is a vital skill.
the internal camera has the potential to be a useful input device.
motion detection offers the opportunity to control and move the cursor by

It looks like a specification known as the Capture API is emerging. It appears to cover this use case and more. I'm marking this as a duplicate of that bug.
