Let’s go! Download Breeze Booth for iPad and an initial set of events to your iPad or iPhone:

When you first download Breeze Booth for iPad, you are asked to give the app permission to

  • access the iPad/iPhone cameras
  • download an initial set of events
  • access the microphone
  • control external cameras


Breeze Booth for iPad home screen when first downloaded

To allow Breeze Booth to access the camera. Select OK.


Select Yes to download an initial set of events.


During the download a long list of files scrolls by. It is best to use  a good internet connection for the initial download as some events are quite large.

When the download is complete you will be returned to the home screen.

Select the start button ( highlighted in red below) to try the first event, Props and Filters.

Select the start button highlighted in red to run the current event ( here Props and Filters)

Hint : Sometimes the first time you run the app live view is not displayed. If this happens, force close the app and open it again.  The live view should then be displayed on the iPad screen.


Select OK to allow Breeze Booth to use the microphone to record video messages.



Select OK so that Breeze Booth can use an external camera if required

Secret buttons

All the sample events come with hidden buttons which are revealed by tapping the top right corner of the screen.


Tap the top right corner to reveal five hidden buttons

From left to right, these buttons let you

  • Exit the event and go to the Home screen where you can switch to different Events or adjust the App Settings
  • Sync ie update the event to the most recent version
  • Adjust the camera settings –  Contrast, Saturation, Vibrance, Auto exposure compensation, White balance and Digital zoom
  • Check booth status – number of sessions and shares, where images are waiting to be shared
  • Hide the hidden buttons

Note: You can restrict access to all or some of these options for live events

Which iPad/iPhone should I use?

Breeze Booth runs on all iPads and iPhones running iPadOS 17, iPadOS 16, iPadOS 15, iOS 17, iOS 16 and iOS 15.

Videos, slow motion and all background removal requiring live view run much better on powerful devices.

We strongly recommend fast recent devices to capture slow motion, post process videos, and offer built in background removal with live view. At the time of writing (February 2023) recommended devices include the 2022 iPad 10th Generation, 2022 or 2021 iPad Pro, 2022 iPad Air or 2022 iPhone SE, iPhone 14 and iPhone 13. The A11 processor (2019 or more recent models) is the minimum which can be used.

What cameras can I use?

Use any of the cameras built into the iPad/iPhone (front and back) , or connect to a Canon camera for higher quality videos and photos.

Running Breeze Booth with a separate Canon mirrorless or DSLR camera appeals to

  • discerning customers looking for quality
  • better image quality
  • ability to use flash instead of ambient lighting
  • less obtrusive lighting when the booth is not active

Booth supports a huge range of Canon cameras. Choose between the ROS R100, R50, R10, R8, R7, R6 Mark II, R6, R5, R3, RP, M50 Mk II, M50, M200, M6 Mark II, and most Canon DSLR models.. Booth also supports Canon’s PowerShot SX70 HS, G5 X Mark II & G7 X Mark III. Full list of supported cameras

At the time of writing (June 2023) we believe the Canon EOS R100, R10, M50 Mk II and M50 are good choices. All three are compact models with Canon’s excellent dual pixel AF with face detect in live view.
