Searching for a camera with universal flash pin

Hey guys so I am starting a photobooth business and I need a good camera that won’t break the bank. I have an eos T100 but it doesn’t have the universal pin for an external flash! I need one that will be able to work with a transmitter and live view, thanks!

Hello Snaplt welcome to the forums. The lowest end Rebel series camera to offer the center pin on the hot shoe is the Rebel T8i. Also only Canon speedlites and transmitters will work in live view. 3rd party speedlites and transmitters Do NOT work in live view and the flash will NOT Fire.

What is your budget, then?  What type of transmitter?

Do you have a fully fleshed out design in mind?

I have a godox TT520ii and ideally something less than 600? If possible if not I can find a used one. The pic attached are the cameras that are compatible

You did not say what type of “transmitter” you would be using. 

I suggest that you FIRST figure out how your booth will work, soup to nuts.  Buying some gear and then figuring out how to make it work is a recipe for failure.

There are lots of videos about DIY photo booths on YouTube.  I suggest that you do some research and design your photo booth before you start buying camera gear.
