For the sake of others searching this topic, I'd like to echo that this can be done quite successfully with a DSLR. I am using a Nikon D7000 for this. I have a charger and a spare battery at work. The battery drain during use is not excessive. The software will tolerate turning off the camera between sessions, and pick back up when the camera is turned back on. It is also possible to toggle the shutter off through the software, which drops the mirror and presumably saves battery. Periodically the camera will drop the shutter, but the software immediately raised it again.

I downloaded Sparkocam and bought a license. They have a very specific list of compatible cameras on their web site.

Features I like:

- Good quality image without distortion, back of the room out of focus

- Ability to modify white balance

- Ability to trigger auto-focus within the spark-o-cam software.

I am using a VXi high-quality bluetooth headset for audio, but the laptop microphone was adequate.

Hope this helps.


Nice review.  Thanks!
