Re: anyone make a photo booth with an alpha?

Here's mine.  It uses an Alpha 77ii with HDMI out to a front monitor.  The user presses the large red button, which is connected to an Arduino microcontroller, that triggers the shutter on the Alpha 77ii through the remote plug.  The Alpha 77ii is connected to a touchscreen laptop on the backside of the photobooth via USB.  The photos then selected by the user for print using the InstantPhotoBooth software.

BTW I tried using the Eye-fi card but for me the software was way too wonky and unreliable so I ended up upgrading my A37 to the A77ii as it had USB, external flash plug, remote plug, and an HDMI out.
