Could you set up a test account (System Preferences > Users and Groups and, after unlocking the preference by clicking the "Lock" at bottom left and entering your password, click the + to add a new account), login with this new account and see if the problem still happens or if it is specific to your main account only.

Thanks to you both and sorry to hear you're still having problems marcus.li.
I refer you to a similar thread, and the numerous suggestions in this thread include an SMC reset. Worth trying some of the suggestions o check it out:

I face the same problem as well, waking up one day and finding my camera not working, with a similar version of the macbook air. I tried the SMC reset but it doesnt work. Is there a way to re install the camera driver? Apparently after checking the system information, the computer is not detecting the in-built camera so I figured it might be corrupted somewhere. Any advice would be good. thanks!

Yes. Follow the instructions for reinstalling your Mac OS X. All necessary drivers are automatically installed by the OS X installer.

Try this. It worked for me.
With the computer off, using the left side of the keyboard press and hold;
and the power key for 5 seconds
then let go of them all at the same time
Nothing will appear to have happened- Turn your computer back on and open facetime- YEAAAAH Buddy! Just worked on mine and feel its my duty to tell others. No clue how to post in all. Thanks to a sweet girl named Rachel at Applecare

Hi! I had the same problem on my MacBook and it was easily solved There is an update for the camera and I ran it and needed to restart the MacBook. The grey loading page appeared when I restarted and voilà! The problem was fixed and the camera works just like before. I hope this helps.

Hi flavioultra ! You need to go to your App Store from your MacBook and go to updates. You should see "software update" with the mountain lion logo on it. You can either run all the updates available or select the camera's (should your Macbook have more than one update available). This worked and I hope it does for you too.
