Breeze Booth (iPad+iPhone) 3.2 adds direct USB connection to Canon cameras

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 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.

  1. Connect your camera to the device running Booth
  2. Switch on the camera
  3. Start the Breeze Booth App, select Camera  from the Home page, and switch on External Camera.


Connecting the 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.

There’s no need to use the old Windows or Raspberry Pi Camera Controller to connect to an external camera.
