Should I update my Event Photography set-up or Photo Booth to Windows 10?


Microsoft is set to release Windows 10 on July 29th and it will be a free upgrade to all current Windows 7, 8 and 8.1 user. We advise that you do not update until you know that your peripherals work with Windows 10, including digital SLRs, dye-sub photo and inkjet printers. Our tech team will be testing drivers from DNP, Mitsubishi, Sinfonia, Ciaat, Fuji, and Epson and will post any discoveries here. Please share your experiences in the comment section below.

If you are using a Darkroom Software product, we do know that the Darkroom team has tested all of their software products with Windows 10 including Darkroom Core, Pro, Assembly and Darkroom Booth. They have discovered no issues; however, they strongly advise caution before upgrading any operating system as they have no control over peripheral equipment such as printers, cameras, card readers and the like that may or may not have issues with Windows 10.

It is always wise to test ALL aspects of your photo booth or event photography system before using it at an actual event. We know you want to have the latest and greatest (and hey, it’s free right?)¬†but there is no real benefit to being the first in your circle to upgrade to Windows 10; and the new Windows 10¬†may have issues itself that are not public yet. So, use caution and always test your entire system for proper operation before¬† going to any event.

If you have any questions please contact our tech team

Be Safe and Happy Printing!
