Disconnection printer and camera

SoloLink is an iOS app that shares your printer(s) over Bluetooth and Wi-Fi so that you can stay connected to your camera and be able to print. It can also share your iPhone's camera to Wifibooth.

Disconnection printer and camera

Postby johannTBox » Mon Jun 11, 2018 2:42 pm

Hey Tim,

Blueprint seems to be the perfect network for all our devices. This makes it an ideal tool for our PhotoBooth as we want to set it up and leave.

But yesterday on our event at BMW the printer disconnected 3 times and the camera at least 2 times over the 3 hours in action. This leaves us having to stay at the events.

Is this something that can be fixed and guaranteed that it will not happen anymore or is this something one has to accept with almost everything wireless?

Thank you

There's no way to run a pro-level photobooth without someone there. Your printers will jam or run out of paper, a camera will hit a firmware snag and hang, or in the case of wifibooth: some wifi signal will get dropped. If you don't need pro-level, use the ipad camera and do everything on the ipad (no printing) - that's foolproof. Otherwise, consider hiring a student (it doesn't take much to learn how to run the booth and it frees you up to do other "real" shooting)
That said, if BluePrint is disconnecting and not auto-reconnecting after, i'd like to learn more details.

Tried messing with all the settings. Nothing. It literally feels like the camera isnt "On", but it is connecting with the software.
