Dear Adafruit Support
I am having the same software issues (as described ealier in this thread) with my recently purchased Aluminum USB Microscope with Precision Stand (www.adafruit.com/products/1061)
The About This Mac report for the camera is shown at the bottom of this message.
On the plus side: Facetime.app and Photo Booth.app are both able to take a feed from the camera.
None of the versions of the MicroCapture apps that are linked earlier in this thread, or via the original product page appear to work for my camera. The symptoms are as described in the dialogue earlier in this thread. I am running Mac 10.8.2
Please advise if you are aware of a version of the software that will run with the camera? Note that Photo Booth.app is fairly serviceable since it will capture both photos and movies albeit with that annoying 3,2,1 to allow you to pose!
