Ok after many hours I finally found the solution I know many of us have been waiting for.

I was able to use my Canon t3i as the "webcam" for sparkbooth.

1. Download Sparkocam. It is so new you cannot google it. just type sparkocam.com and you will find it.
2. Connect your DSLR and turn it on.
3. Open Sparkocam and hit device tab. Select "Canon Camera".
4. Open Sparkbooth, click on camera setting and choose "Sparkocam Virtual Webcam"
5. BAM! You can go full-screen and not have to worry about it! You can mess with slight adjustments if you wish within the Sparkocam settings.

--To remove the watermark, the program is only $19.99 There you go, I spent many hours trying to find the right solution. I hope this helps you guys out.

    But it does not take photos with the Canon camera if you use that program.
    It just streams the video from the camera.

    This is true, but this a lot better then the webcams out there. So still a better solution.

    Hello Carlos, do you have any sample of a "before and after"? I can't see changing to a $800 webcam unless it's pretty spectacular.

    It should be noted that Sparkbooth DSLR is a better solution for this. See http://sparkbooth.com/dslr-photobooth
