Here are the recommended camera settings, as suggested for our photobooths:
1. CAMERA DIAL ON M (MANUAL)
2. ZOOM LENS TO 24MM
3. LENS TO MF AND STABILIZER OFF
4. TURN CAMERA ON (NOT VIDEO)
SHUTTER SPEED: 1/200s
APERTURE: 9.0 - 11.0
IMAGE QUALITY: S2
WHITE BALANCE: SHADE
PICTURE STYLE: NEUTRAL
Af Operation: AI-Servo
AUTO POWER OFF: DISABLE
Without these settings, you may experience one of the following errors:
Shutter speed set too low: The image will appear too bright if the shutter speed is low. Ambient lighting will also show. Blurring will appear around subjects.
Shutter speed set too high: There will be a black bar across the image or it will be completely black. This is because the maximum sync speed is 1/200s. Anything faster and the shutter will cut off the image while it's flashing, hence the black bar.
Shutter set on BULB: The camera will begin to take the picture, but never finish. You'll hear only one click instead of the typical two clicks. This will freeze the computer.
Aperture set too high: The image will appear too dark.
Aperture set too low: The image will appear too bright.
ISO set too high: The image will appear too dark.
ISO set too low: The image will appear too bright.
Image quality set too high: Social booth will take much longer to load.
Image quality set too low: Images will be too low resolution to print.
Image quality set to RAW: Social booth does not support RAW shooting.
White balance set to anything else: The overall color of the image will differ.
Picture style set to anything else: The prints will appear over or understated in color.
AUTO POWER OFF
If set to auto power off, then the program will freeze when the camera disconnects.
