Build a Photo Booth controller with a Raspberry Pi

A photo booth is a fun addition to any gathering, party, wedding or other social event - however having someone available to take the photos when required can be a drag. A solution to this problem has been created by Instructables user safay with their RPi-controlled photo booth.

The system is fully automated - controlling the camera shutter, and has status lights to keep things simple for the end-user - telling them when to pose and when the system is ready. Furthermore the results can be sent to a photo printer for immediate gratification, for example:

To get started on your own booth, visit the project Instructable for complete details. And for more, we're on facebookGoogle+, and twitter - so follow us for news and product updates as well.

If you're looking for a more permanent way to mount circuitry to your Raspberry Pi, check out our new PiBreak - the prototyping board for the Raspberry Pi. It provides labelled breakout pins for all GPIOs, a large prototyping area with solder pads, and power rails for easy power connection:

Furthermore the PiBreak also includes mounting hardware to firmly attach it to your Raspberry Pi using a nut, bolt, and spacer - and is compatible with all revisions of both model A and B Raspberry Pi computers.
