Khanival Photobooth

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)
  • gphoto2 sudo apt-get install gphoto2 or brew install gphoto2
  • ImageMagick sudo apt-get install imagemagick or brew install imagemagick
  • Dependencies from npm npm install

Running

This should do it:

npm start
open http://localhost:8000/
