Ok, I did a couple more fresh installs of 10.8.2.
I did a new install, but forgot to erase the drive before doing so. I'm not sure what all it installed, but iPhoto and iMovie were already there. It did show that the 10.8.2. Update 2 was needed, so I ignored that and tried the iSight camera with Quicktime. It did not work. Crashed the app. So I erased the partition and and did a proper fresh install.
When the install finished, I didn't not update or install anything. I tested the iSight with Quicktime and it worked. Ok, so I installed iMovie. Tested iSight and it worked. Now I installed iPhoto, which caused problems as mention in previous post. Tested iSight and it worked. Great. I just installed Garage Band and all is still working. I have not installed the 10.8.2. Update 2 yet.
So, I'm not sure what is going on. Does iMovie need to install before iPhoto? Do I have to reinstall everything 2-3 times before it works? I guess I'll try the OS update and see if it still works after that.

No. The following method works first time for me every time:
I ALWAYS use the Combo version of updates.
• Use your Mac's Disk Utility to repair permissions and then
download and apply the latest Combo Update, for ML Mac OS,
the current one is at: http://support.apple.com/kb/DL1581
• Repair permissions again immediately following the system restart
that completes the Combo update.
