I have an older macbook:
MacBook3,1
Mac OS X 10.6.8
2.2 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
2GB 667 DDR2 SDRAM

I can not get Sparkbooth to recognize the C910. I did this:
http://help.sparkbooth.com/kb/setup/getting-sparkbooth-to-recognize...
but it did not work.

I get Photobooth to recognize it, & it is an amazing wecam..

I am heading to Burning Man in one week & REALLY want to get it to work. Link to photos once I return to whoever can help me get this cam to work!

-a

Still trying to figure it out..

    The only other option I know of is to physically disable your built-in
    webcam. Like what this guy did:

    Did you try these instructions?

    http://help.sparkbooth.com/kb/setup/using-usb-webcam-on-mac-with-build-in-isight

    There is also a link to a video showing you how to enable the USB webcam.

    I followed both set of instructions and it still didn't work. I opened Photobooth and when I then opened SparkBooth it is clear thatiSight is off because the preview is black and it takes pictures of the blackness. I I still don't have the option to select the Logitech camera.

    Yeah, on my old iMac there was no software solution, and my last resort was to disable the built-in iSight camera. I mention that in this post: http://rasterweb.net/raster/2011/05/19/the-photo-booth/
