Finally I put up some time and started building a “PhotoBox” / “PhotoBooth”. Many thanks to my brother-in-law who’s skilled enough in handcraft to make this project possible without falling apart right away 🙂
The main goal of this project is to come up with an actual use case for one of my old Nikon D2x-cameras, that otherwise wouldn’t leave the shelf at all. Everything is build around the amazing SLR Booth android app – I’ve added a little Raspberry Pi spice (people using the booth should be able to download their pictures to their mobile phones for ~ 5 minutes after they’ve taken a picture).
Once I’m done with it and everything works as I expect it to, I’ll be sharing building instructions and the source-code for the RPi extension 🙂
What is the PhotoBox made of?
- Metal Coupler Pieces
- Nikon D2x
- Pixel C
- Raspberry Pi
- Canon Selphy Printer
