Camera number is still an issue in SimpleCV. Usually your built in camera is camera zero as it is actually a USB camera. The ordering of the camera is based on the order in which the cameras are plugged in to your computer. This is a known issue that we are still trying to resolve. You can select cameras using the camera number parameter. E.g.

c0 = Camera(0) # camera 0
c1 = Camera(1) # camera 1
