SLR Booth provides a number of options for triggering the countdown, allowing for flexibility and creativity when it comes to creating your photo booth setup.
If you’re using a tablet or all-in-one with a touchscreen, then using the touch is probably the way to go. Just press the button with the camera icon on the screen, and the countdown will start.
SLR Booth will also respond to the space key being pressed. This can be sent from a standard USB or bluetooth keyboard, but another great option is to use a USB foot pedal programmed to send the space key.
There are several bluetooth camera remotes on the market that operate by sending the volume up key – SLR Booth will function just fine with these to start the countdown.
SLR Booth Remote App
If you have an extra Android phone, you can install the SLR Booth Remote app, and it can function as a basic UI with a few more features than a simple button – it can trigger and cancel the countdown, and also supports approving/deleting images after they’re taken. This works great when running the main app on an HDTV & Android TV box – users get a big screen to look at, but can still use a touch interface.
How and where can I purchase the full version?
The full version is currently free, but there will be an in-app purchase option eventually.
Is it possible to use YongNuo RF-603 to trigger the countdown?
No, triggering the camera directly isn’t possible when the app has control of it.
thank you for your answer.
So, what would be the best way to connect a buzzer?
What do you mean by a buzzer? You can use a bluetooth trigger as a handheld remote
Can you help walk me through setting the SLR Booth remote app to trigger SLR Booth? It doesn’t seem to be talking to each other. Thanks!
Hi Steven, version 1.0.2 of the remote app is out, and will give you more info about the connection status.
Is it possible to hide the touch screen triggering button?? We just want to trigger it with the keyboard option.
Currently, the UI buttons only hide when using the Remote app
