    I wanted the photo booth to be maintenance-free, and when printing photos always have to be nearby (even to add paper). When building a photo booth, the costs also counted a bit, and the legal software to operate the fotobudki to the cheapest does not belong. In general, I was aware of ready-made solutions, but I preferred to do it "my way".

    Exactly, after the event, I am playing pictures of the event organizer and he is already deciding what to do with them.

     
    I know that it's a bit old, but my colleague did not think about putting a printer on photo paper, which prints immediately after taking a photo? Recently, I was at a party, someone normally put a PC with Windows 7 there, some lens (I do not know if it was just a camera or something more advanced), monitor i to potem pojęło. [/ Quote]

    I will add that when I looked for a typical photo booth printer, the cheapest one was probably 2,500.

    Everything ok, except that similar photo booths allow printing. And what was created behind the black curtain will definitely remain there or in the photographer's pocket. With this idea, however, it will remain on the SD memory.

    A great idea, as well as this trivial automation made for it. We have a photo booth at a low cost.

    However, looking at the fact that 2 flashlights behind an umbrella, an amateur SLR, cabling and a monitor for viewing the photo are enough - and the most important trigger, e.g. rf or ir remote control.

    And without a wooden booth we get the same.

    I am impressed with DIY and I will gladly watch the refinement of the project. And as I mentioned before, an RF or IR remote to trigger the trigger. Or a button on the floor that will release the shutter.

    Approaching the button tiring (but also dangerous for the equipment if we find well-knit people). I think that even in this case the concrete base will not save the equipment.

    Inability to print photos is the biggest problem with this photo booth. When it comes to "remaining photos in the pocket of the photographed" it only seems so - every photo booth saves the photos on the card / disk, so there is no hope that the printed photo will be the only copy :-P

    I had the opportunity to check the operation of my photo booth at a few weddings and I will tell you that the kit you describe would not last 2 hours from the first 'One hundred years' for the bride and groom :-P Seriously, drunk people willingly touch everything, move it, push the buttons, stumble, spread gadgets all over the room - I tell you the massacre, everything must be locked :-D

    All photo booths (which I have met so far) work so that you have to press a button on them or touch the screen. I have a plan to add an extra button to my photo booth to trigger photos remotely (RF).

    Well, just something on the floor like a raised tile, where someone touches with your foot and the photo has 5 seconds.

    Remembering the problem of not printing - it's obvious that all other solutions carry costs. E.g. a simple interface on the monitor that would allow you to enter an email. But it's SCI-FI already

    Act Engineer, I will monitor your project.

    Photo booth cool. Such devices should be as intuitive as possible and least demanding in terms of service. In my opinion, the trigger should definitely have a large button and be well attached, e.g. on a column to the ground. The idea with the tile is also interesting. The screen as I noticed displays a real image. It is better if it was a mirror image, it is more natural for people watching themselves in the monitor. As for the lack of a printer, the camera can be connected to a computer where photos are saved in a folder (selected by the user) and the folder is synchronized with the ftp server. In other words, you can have them on your website immediately after taking the picture. This page can be password protected. Now almost everyone has a phone with internet. All you need to do is hang a card with the website address and password. Anyone interested will be able to download such a photo right after taking it, and even upload it to some social protal. It's always an alternative to printing photos. And lower costs.

    I admit that I used to do a lot of things to mirror the image, but I still haven't solved it today

    Then it gets thicker with the control - I suppose the easiest way to buy commercial software then

    If I make another version of the photo booth, this is how it will work :D

    It is worth using the software provided with the camera. Thanks to this, the photos are saved immediately to the computer disk. The image can be inverted by connecting an additional monitor and set to mirror cover in the appropriate multi-monitor program. The downside of this venture is that you have to connect it to your computer.

    And is there any inexpensive (e.g. up to PLN 500) program that automatically sends a photo to the printer when a new photo appears on the camera card?

    I think you can google something. On the first page of the search I found a program for PLN 690 net :-)
