This is my attempt to hack together a photo booth for my brother's wedding using an old netbook and a DSLR.
To use, position the netbook at chest height and somehow balance the camera just
above the netbook's webcam. Plug the camera into the netbook via usb, fire up
server.coffee and point chrome at
localhost:8000. When someone presses a
key, the camera takes 4 pictures, which are thumbnailed using imagemagick and
displayed on the screen for the amusement of everyone present.
You will need:
- A webkit based browser (it could probably be tweaked to work in any modern browser now, but back when I wrote it only webkit had the necessary apis)
sudo apt-get install gphoto2or
brew install gphoto2
sudo apt-get install imagemagickor
brew install imagemagick
- Dependencies from npm
This should do it:
npm start open http://localhost:8000/
