Can I replace video camera?
On an early 2011 Macbook Pro, can I replace the video camera? I don't see that part in the Ifixit inventory.
Is this a good question?
The iSight camera IS replaceable but it's not a common party by any means since it wasn't available from Apple as a standalone part, it was only available as part of the display assembly.
A quick search turned one up on eBay - MacBook Pro A1278 iSight Camera. I would obviously exercise caution when buying a part online.
This repair guide should walk you through the majority of the repair, I would recommend studying it before you order a part to ensure you're comfortable performing the repair. Basically you can see the camera module in step 25.
