DSLR Remote Pro 188.8.131.52 was released today, March 9th. This is a minor update, fixing issues in DSLR Remote Pro 3.18.2 where touchscreen keyboards converted all input to upper case and the program could crash when using SHIFT+Ctrl+left click to save the keyboard settings.
Photo Booth Expo 2023
2023 was our busiest Expo for years. Breeze, EventKite and Everybooth shared a stand showcasing Breeze for Windows and Breeze for iPad running on Everybooth’s lovely wooden booths. Images were uploaded to EventKite’s new microsite and gallery.
Visitors loved the black and white video and photos taken by DLSR Remote Pro, and were astonished by the power and speed of Breeze for iPad 3.3.
Breeze for iPads’ ability to offer built in background removal with live view for both video and photos was a hit, as was the ability to pair the iPad with Canons’ mirrorless and DSLR cameras.
Sharp eyed visitors may have noticed that overlays on both the DSLR Remote Pro and Breeze for iPad images vary, sharing prime position between the three businesses on the stand. Both Breeze for iPad and DSLR Remote Pro include the ability to randomly vary layouts.
Chris and I had a blast in Las Vegas at Booth Mastermind and Photo Booth Expo. It was great to catch up with many of you after three years away.
We are taking a vacation driving part of the Pacific Coast Highway before heading back to the UK on Friday.
Many of the Californian state parks along Pacific Coast Highway are closed after the recent storms, but we managed to see the awesome redwoods at Pfeiffer Big Sur State Park. Learning more about these giants was a reminder of National Geographic’s award winning Climbing Redwood Giants (which just happened to use Breeze Multi-Camera)
Once we get home Chris will put the final touches to Breeze Booth for iPad 3.3, which we previewed on the stand at PBX, then move on to the next release of Breeze Booth (DSLR+Windows).
The Trade Show at Photo Booth Expo 2023 (PBX) opens this afternoon at Southpoint Hotel and Casino, Las Vegas.
Breeze Trade Show stand
Breeze will be showcasing the latest features of Breeze Booth (DSLR+Windows) and Breeze Booth for iPad at the trade show, opening at 5pm today.
Breeze and Everybooth have neighbouring stands, both showcasing Breeze software running on Everybooth booths. Find us at Booth 801.
Many of you know that Steve has been developing a web based back end specifically for Breeze Booth for Windows and iPadOS.
Designed specifically to work with Breeze, Event Kite can host microsites, galleries and survey data from your events
Steve will also demonstrate EventKite on the stand.
We’re also delighted that Ken Oelschläger (photoboothkaufen.de ) will be joining us at the stand on Wednesday afternoon. Long time Breeze expert Ken has been travelling from Germany to PBX since the first Expo in 2015.
PBX Hall of Fame
Chris and I were honored and proud when Rob Savickis announced last July that we will be the first two inductees to the new PBX Hall of Fame at PBX this year.
Rob released the full list of inaugural inductees last week and we are delighted that Jürgen Mayr has also been inducted. Many of you know Jürgen and have benefited from his generous and knowledgeable support to the Breeze community.
We had an incredible time at Booth Mastermind this weekend, listening to highly regarded industry leaders share their business journey, and offering tips and tricks that delegates can use to help grow their own business. Congratulations to Ismail Humet , Ursula Murphy and Sammy English for organising a superb conference.
Breeze Booth (DSLR+Windows) aka DSLR Remote Pro 3.18.2 was released today, February 14th.
This release adds support for Canon’s fabulous new EOS R6 Mark II camera, introduces a watermark over prints displayed in the print confirmation and sharing screens, and the ability to retry failed uploads.
EOS R6 Mark II support
The mirror-less EOS R6 Mark II is a superb camera for high end photo booth operators, especially those offering slow motion and video. The R6 Mark II comes with
180 frames/second or 120 frames/second slow motion at 1080p
Center hotshoe contact allowing external flash to be triggered
Class leading face and eye detect autofocus
DSLR Remote Pro already supports Canon’s EOS R10, R7, R6, R5, R and RP models, several M series cameras, and almost all Canon DSLRs.
Watermark on screen copy of prints
We’re getting a lot of interest in using DSLR Remote Pro for pay to print and pay to share booths at fixed installations.
To discourage guests from taking a photo of the booth screen instead of paying for it, DSLR Remote Pro 3.18.2 can watermark prints displayed in both the print confirmation and sharing screens.
The watermark image must be called print_watermark.png and placed in the photo booth images folder.
Breeze are delighted to be exhibiting at Photo Booth Expo this year. Whether you are a long time Breeze user and regular PBX attendee or new to both, we would love to meet you there.
Photo Booth Expo (PBX ) is the World’s Largest Trade Show for Photo Booth Companies. This year the expo runs from Monday 20th to Thursday 23nd February.
PBX Trade Show opens on Tuesday. You’ll find Chris and I on the trade show floor at Booth 801. When you come to the stand be sure to check out the creative video FX and other fab new features in Breeze Booth for iPad and Breeze Booth (DSLR+Windows).
We are also attending Booth Mastermind at Southpoint on Saturday 18th and Sunday 19th February.
Breeze are delighted to announce the release of Breeze Booth (iPad+iPhone) 3.2 today, Wednesday 18th January. We have also released upgrades to the Breeze companion apps: Event Editor 3.2, Hub 184.108.40.206 and Camera Controller 1.1.4.
Breeze Booth (iPad+iPhone) 3.2 brings you direct USB connection between iPads /iPhones and Canon cameras.
This release also adds the ability to specify the age of photos deleted from the device using Auto Purge at 4am, fixes issues switching between built in cameras using the new iPad 10th Generation, and fixes an issue saving printer filters in Breeze Hub.
Why use an external camera?
Running an iPad or iPhone booth with a separate Canon DSLR or Mirrorless camera gives you
appeal to discerning customers looking for quality
better image quality
ability to use flash instead of ambient lighting
less obtrusive lighting when the booth is not active
Breeze Booth shoots video, stills and GIFs using Canon cameras or cameras built into the device in both landscape and portrait.
Which cameras can I use?
Breeze Booth (iPad+iPhone) supports a huge range of Canon cameras. Choose from most Canon DSLRs, R10, R7, R3, M50 Mk II, M50, M200, M6 Mark II. Booth also supports Canon’s PowerShot SX70 HS, G5 X Mark II & G7 X Mark III Full list
Hot tip: Chris‘s pick is the Canon EOS R10. He believes the face detect auto focus gives it great potential for photo booth use.
How easy is it to switch between the iPad camera and a external camera?
Very simple. You switch between internal and external camera in the Breeze Booth app.
Connect your camera to the device running Booth
Switch on the camera
Start the Breeze Booth App, select Camera from the Home page, and switch on External Camera.
Connect the camera to the iPad/iPhone with a USB connection. It’s best to have a charging port so you can charge the iPad/iPhone at the same time.
Devices with USB C connection
We recommend using a USB C hub with a USB C charging port so you can charge the device and connect to the camera simultaneously.
You can connect devices with USB C connectors directly to the camera, but won’t be able to charge the device at the same time.
Devices with lightning connector
For older devices with lightning connectors, you need a lightning to USB adaptor. We recommend the lightning to USB adaptor has a lightning charging port so you can charge the device and connect to the camera simultaneously.
Do I still need the Breeze Booth camera controller to use a Canon camera with Breeze Booth (iPad+iPhone)?
There’s no need to use the old Windows or Raspberry Pi Camera Controller to connect to an external camera.
Cameras Supported: Most Canon DSLRs, R10, R7, R3, M50 Mk II, M50, M200, M6 Mark II, PowerShot SX70 HS, G5 X Mark II & G7 X Mark III. iPad and iPhone front and rear facing integral cameras
Platforms Supported: iPads and iPhones running iPadOS 16, iPadOS 15, iOS 16 and iOS 15
Trial version/While logged out: There’s no need to use a subscription while you test Breeze for iPad or work on new events. Watermarks are added after the first 10 images each day.
Breeze also ended support for our software running on Windows 8.1 on January 10th.
Once Microsoft end Windows 8.1 support, we cannot test or support our products on this operating system safely. We strongly recommend anyone still running Breeze programs on Windows 8.1 or Windows 8 upgrades to Windows 11 as soon as possible.
I’m still running Breeze on Windows 8.1, will the program stop working on January 10th?

If your Breeze license is curently activated, you should deactivate it before upgrading Windows. If you need help, email firstname.lastname@example.org .
Can I still upgrade my old Breeze license?
