Breeze Photographer Mode - tethered shooting with instant sharing

Breeze Booth for iPad & iPhone

Updated June 2023

Breeze Booth (iPad+iPhone) 3.3 introduced a new Photographer Mode for tethered shooting with a Canon camera

Photographer mode puts the photographer in control

  • Capture the action – photos are taken when the camera shutter is pressed
  • Control camera settings from the camera

Instant Sharing

  • Share photos from the app using email or text
  • Flakey internet? No problem. Images are queued on the device and shared automatically when the connection improves
  • Event internet is only needed for sharing

How do I use Photographer mode?

  • Create a new photo event, adapt an existing event or use the free Roaming event below
  • Deploy your event to Breeze Booth for iPad
  • Connect your camera to the iPad/iPhone
  • Switch on external camera and Photographer mode
  • Shoot from the camera as usual
  • Adjust camera settings and take photos from the camera
  • Guests view and share their photos from Booth’s built in sharing gallery

Event Editor checklist


  • For a fast workflow we recommend using single photo events without confirmation screens.
  • To check photos before showing them to guests, use a print confirmation screen in the Event Editor. You can adjust the timeout to the number of seconds the confirm printing screen should be displayed. Check Accept prints after timeout unless you want the image to be cancelled if you do not accept it.

Deploy your event to Breeze Booth for iPad

Breeze Booth for iPad events are synced (transferred) from the Event Editor PC  to the devices (iPads/iPhones) where they are used.

Detailed instructions

Connect your camera to the iPad/iPhone and switch on Photographer mode

Instructions for connecting the camera can be found here

Before leaving the Camera Settings screen, Switch on Photographer mode

Switch on Photographer Mode in the camera settings screen, accessed from the Breeze Booth for iPad home screen

In operation

Set up Breeze Booth for iPad as above. Run the event, leave it at the ready screen, and take photos with your camera.

Roaming photographers using the app usually take 2 or 3 photos, then show them to guests on the app sharing screen.

Each photo is automatically downloaded to the device, where any filters and effects are added, prints and slideshow GIFs created.

Wait a short time before taking the next photo to allow it to be downloaded and processed.

Free sample events for roaming photographers

These free events are designed for roaming photographers taking photos in landscape orientation and works best with a small iPhone (e.g. iPhone SE)* connected directly to a Canon camera.

The phone can be fixed to the camera in either portrait or landscape orientation. For best results enable the orientation lock on the phone.

*The events also work on iPads and other iPhones.

Providing you have installed Breeze Booth for iPad on your iPhone/iPad,  the Roaming events can be downloaded to your iPhone or iPad by scanning this QR code.

Two similar events will be downloaded to the app.

  • Roaming ( Mirrorless) is intended for Canon’s mirrorless cameras.
  • Roaming ( DSLR) is for Canon DSLR cameras. Live view is switched off, enabling the photographer to use the camera’s view finder.

Sharing Gallery

Both events include a sharing gallery.

It is best not to take photos while the app displays the sharing gallery. Any photos taken while you are in the gallery will be saved for 15 seconds, then deleted. To view these photos you need to leave the gallery, wait for the photos to be processed and return to the gallery.

To load this event into your Event Editor download this zip file to the PC.
