Starting your photo booth with a button
We’ve had several people ask about how to setup their photo booths so guests can start the sequence of taking pictures with a button. The best option we’ve found is to use the Griffin Powermate. It’s a usb button that works with PCs and Macs. In our testing, it looks great, is easy to setup and works great with dslrBooth. Once you get your powermate, download the drivers from griffin’s website. Then setup the button push action to send the SPACE keyboard key.
Interested in a foot switch instead, we recommend the StealthSwitch USB Foot Switch. Again, just configure the switch’s software to send the SPACE keyboard key.
Make sure you have setup dslrBooth to trigger camera automatically or else pressing the button will only start the countdown and nothing else.
