Looking for a printer

Postby zypie » Sat May 20, 2017 5:38 pm

Hi, I'm looking for a printer.

At home I've got a Canon Selphy, but I'm looking for something more autonome.
It's not easy for guests to change the paper and the cartridges.

The HP Sprocket needs only to change paper and seems easy to fill, is it compatible with wifibooth?

Does Bluetooth printers are compatibles? or just Airprint ones?

If you know a printers who have large paper/ink capacity or zero ink printer with easy paper filling, please tell me :D
My wifibooth configuration :

Canon EOS 6D (w/ sector adaptator, no battery) - Canon 24-105 f/4 - Neewer DE 300 (w/ umbrella)
iPad Air 1 + TP Link m7350 4G/LTE router, all on a standalone homemade box.

Wifibooth supports only airprint except for DNP WPS
If your budget affords it, DNS WPS-PRO and a good dnp printer is best!

Now in 2020, when will WifiBooth have support for BlueTooth printers like HP Sprocket? :)

Never: that's not a standard bluetooth connection. They're using a proprietary protocol that they don't release the specification for.

DNP just released what looks like a killer printer, and the wireless optional dongle they talk about does directly support AirPrint i'm told.

Hey Tim, that QW410 looks dope! Where did you find anything about the wireless dongle?

Hi adirpm,
I have a contact at DNP that I work with to make sure their hardware works well with Wifibooth. I asked him.

this is very interesting. I wonder what the cost may be. getting frustrated that i can't use my selphy printers. Had to pass on two events last December since the client wanted prints.

Thanks for the heads up Tim. I will keep an eye out for that qw410

Hi Marco,
I'm not sure what country you're located in, did you see this?
https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/ ... inter.html
I don't have any info on the pricing of the wifi module that's mentioned, but i'm guessing it will not cost more than the existing DNP WPS Pro which is $219USD.
So it looks like you can get the printer + wifi module for something like $700USD, which is already considerably cheaper than existing pro-printing alternatives that i'm aware of.
