PRESS RELEASE: Canon EOS Rebel XSi / 450D and Photo booth support with DSLR Remote Pro v1.7 and PSRemote 1.6
24th April 2008: Breeze Systems announce the immediate availability of DSLR Remote Pro v1.7 for controlling Canon EOS cameras and PSRemote v1.6 for controlling Canon PowerShot cameras. DSLR Remote Pro v1.7 extends the photo booth mode and adds support for the Canon EOS 450D/Rebel XSi, including remote live view display with auto-focus. Photo booth mode is added to PSRemote v1.6.
Chris Breeze writes "Photo booth mode was introduced to DSLR Remote Pro last year in response to the increasing popularity of these booths at events. The new live view lets sitters see themselves pose in front of the camera and greatly enhances the photo booth experience. Guests have a great time taking their own photographs and take home a keepsake. Highly configurable prints can be unique to the event. Both formatted prints and the original images can now be saved for later reprinting, uploading to web galleries and copying to CD. Photo booth prints can be created in color or black and white (Note: some older DSLR cameras are restricted to color prints).
DSLR Remote Pro's unique ability to remotely auto-focus Canon's current high end EOS cameras has been very popular with professional photographers, as has the remote live view. We are very pleased to extend these features of DSLR Remote Pro to the more economical EOS 450D."
