This is a simple inexpensive device that will connect to any USB printer with a Windows driver. This is a peer to peer solution so no internet connection or network adapter is necessary.

Wireless Photo Printer with Lantronix xPrintServerLantronix

This is a great solution if you want to set up your iOS device (iPhone, iPad) to print to your photo printer. The Lantronix print server is inexpensive and easy to set up; the one drawback is as of date it is only compatible with the DNP DS40 and DNP DS80 and the Shinko S9045. We have filed requests with Lantronix to add additional printers. Read more, purchase and see Lantronix’s hilarious videos here.

Shoot and Print Wirelessly using Darkroom Core and a Windows TabletSilex-diagram

Shoot, preview and order prints wirelessly with this solution that includes a DNP DS40 connected to a Silex Wireless USB Server, a DSLR and a Windows Tablet running Darkroom Core Software. See a video demonstration here.

Shoot photos and wirelessly auto-print

This is a great option when you want to have a roaming photographer shooting while images are automatically sent wirelessly to a computer. The computer is running Darkroom Core which has been set up to “auto-print” to a DNP DS40. This solution could also be set up for an attendant to curate and print only the photos wanted. See a video demonstration here.

Email a photo to a printer

This solution enables a user to email a photo to a station which automatically makes a print. This example uses a mini computer running Darkroom Core Software in auto-print mode with a Sinfonia CS2 photo printer. This solution does require an internet connection in order to receive the email. The email addresses is customizable and is set up in Darkroom Core. See a video demonstration here.

    Hi Steve, thanks for the comment. It’s not wireless in that it needs a server but you might want to take a look at PicPic Social. They have an iPad app.

    I spent almost 7 months working directly with Lantronix trying to get several of their “supported” printers to work. I event sent them one of my Sony and Mitsubishi printers to test with but were never able to get them to print from the iPad.
    Love the idea of printing to dye sub printers from a tablet but I’ve had no success.
