I've got SimpleCV 1.3 working on my Macbook now, but seem to only be able to connect to the iSight camera and not a USB webcam. The webcam works fine in photobooth. I've tried cam = Camera(1) followed by, which loads the iSight camera and cam = Camera(0) which generates an error on entering

Any ideas? Just tried again with Camera(0) and it worked but gives an error python[1533:60b] Can't open input server /Users/martin/Library/InputManagers/

What model of USB camera? Generally most of the brand name cameras have really good support. Other models it can be a bit spotty.
