*The T7 does not support use with X sync external flash units. This is a camera limitation.

*There is a known issue with the Canon T7 – continuous use can cause the camera to overheat. This can cause the application to freeze. For photo booth applications a cooling fan added to the photo booth case has been known to help.

Bar Code Scanners

Bar Code Scanners

Darkroom Assembly Edition and Professional Edition (versions 8.8 and above) support both serial port and USB bar code scanners.

You can use almost any serial port bar code scanner as long at it reads Code 3 of 9 and has a built-in decoder. If your computer or laptop does not have a serial port (but does have USB), you can purchase a serial-to-USB port adapter.

Any USB bar code scanner which can emulate a keyboard and allows programming to specify prefix/suffix characters can be used. For USB barcode scanners only, you will need to program the scanner to add a prefix character ASCII 02H (STX), and to add a suffix character ASCII 0DH (CR).

Barcode Scanners

  • Metrologic MS9540 VoyagerCG
  • RS-232 kit
  • Unitech MS120 Barcode
  • RS 232, with DB-9 connector

Operating Systems

Supported Operating Systems

For best results, Darkroom Software recommends Windows 10 operating system.

Windows 11 – For those purchasing a new computer stay with 10 if you can. If all that is available is Windows 11, all of our apps will run just fine; however, you may need to connect your computer to the internet every 20 days instead of the normal 6 months due to changes in Windows 11. This should be resolved soon but it will require updating to the latest version of Darkroom Core or Pro once it is released.

Older Operating Systems – Microsoft has discontinued support of Windows 7 and 8, therefore Darkroom can no longer support these operating systems. For best results, please update to Windows 10.

An i3 Intel processor or higher with 4 GB of RAM or higher is recommended.

All Darkroom software is Windows software and there is no Mac version. Core with activation will run in Boot Camp, but not in virtual environments (no Parallels or Fusion). Boot Camp is not available for new M1 based Apple computers.
