Requirements

GoPro Camera

We highly recommend the GoPro 11. If not available, the GoPro 10 with the latest firmware update. We have found older GoPro models to have random Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity issues.

dslrBooth supports GoPro 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 and 11 for recording video and 360 footage.  dslrBooth will connect wirelessly to your camera over Bluetooth LE and Wi-Fi. 

Bluetooth Adapter

Almost all laptops and tablets will have the required Bluetooth adapter built-in but if you wish to use a GoPro with a desktop computer or an older laptop, you will need to purchase a Bluetooth Low Energy adapter.

Wi-Fi Adapter

Almost all laptops will have a Wi-Fi adapter. This is needed to download files from your GoPro and share your processed videos over the internet. Computer must have a recent and good quality Wi-Fi adapter.

GoPro Connection Tips

  • If you use multiple GoPros or run dslrBooth on multiple machines at the same event, make sure each GoPro is only paired to one computer. If you need to unpair the GoPro from a computer, you can do so under Windows Control Panel, Devices, Remove.
