I use a similar model and have never had clogging issues.

Do you use regular ink cartridges or a CIS?

Regular ink. Maybe I've just been lucky? I've used it quite a bit. I usually use new ink each time but I tried extending it a bit more recently and got two events off of one set of ink.

Thanks, Michael. I'm indeed running Win7x64.

For the 5D and Windows 7 questions, If Windows 7 is running in 64 bit the 5D software will not work. You will need to down load virtual desktop from Windows and load in Windows XP to make it run. I had the same problem with my laptop and Windows 7 64 bit. The software for the capture from tethered to camera and computer will not work. Canon did not up date the software for the 5D camera for the new 64 bit computers.

have you every had any problems running dslrbooth? The last time we used it, after about 150 prints it started printing lines that looked like a watermark on the photos. They didn't show up in the print folder, just on the print itself.

I use a white backdrop, 2 alien bees with umbrellas, camera tethered to a windows laptop, print using lightroom to a dye sub printer. Live photographer taking each shot, so that each shot is in focus, properly composed. Generally print in batches. Guest can come pick the print up a few minutes later.

I haven't yet done a photo booth without prints. Everyone wants prints so far. After doing more this past season, I've realized how much work it all is from setup, workflow, and teardown. It's quite a bit of work, but the results are great and guests love it!

Which Dye Sub do you use? I just bought a DNP Snaplab and am looking forward to using it this Saturday. The reason I ask is because, somewhere in my research I remember reading about a free "Hot Folder Print" program that came with one of the dye subs I was looking at, but can't remember which one. Have you, or anyone else...tried something like this? It automatically prints when a file shows up in the folder..

For past events, I'ved used a few Canon Selphy 4x6 printers. They are a bit slow, but produce good quality. I'm about to upgrade to the Shinko Color Stream CS2 as it is 11 seconds per 4x6. I think speed is essential to improving my workflow.

I've used only lightroom to manually print, although an automated print whatever shows up in the folder might be something to look into. I'm just afraid of printing too much as I sometimes take a few photos of each group.

What software is everyone using to print photos? I've been using DSLRbooth and have had problems of some sort at every event! I'm ready to give up and move on to something else.

I have been using DSLRbooth and haven't had any issues.... Shot probably 40=50 events. The only "issue" I have encountered is the print style changing to portrait instead landscape or vice versa (so now I do test images prior which I should have been doing from the get go). just recently my camera started flaking which we thought was the program, but was the camera.

For some reason the software kept disconnecting and I had to restart it about 10 times during our event.. Very frustrating!

I am not sure if this would work for a wedding, but could you just set the camera to take a photo every 3 seconds (or other duration), and let it go for the length of the event.

I think most people would figure out what is going on pretty quickly and join in the fun.

If you get into printing, this method would not work.

That's an awesome alternative to the static shots - much easier set up as you just turn it on and walk away! Simple :)

And the video is quite cool too - just drop all the images into imovie and then export = no mucking around post production etc.

And...maybe you could still tether and have the images showing so people get some instant gratification.

I would be interesting to see what people do. Props no instruction and let it happen *LOL*
