Newest Feature to Our Photo Booth -Hint Open Me Up!

Our latest addition to the booth is now a drawer. The bottom piece of the photo booth now is a pull out drawer. Put in a basket and load your props. This will help your guests grab many different props while using your booth. The booth will still have the sliding doors on the back so you can store things if you do not use the drawer feature. I just left the back out for the purpose of this video. [youtube height=”HEIGHT”...

Why we use a DSLR camera and what it means to you?

Why we use a DSLR camera and what it means to you?

By on Feb 18, 2013 in Recent News, Uncategorized | 0 comments

We throw out all this mumble jumble about how good our camera is but you probably have no idea why. Most photo booth companies use a regular point and shoot camera or a webcam. We exclusively use a DSLR and here is why. DSLR Strengths Image Quality – I’ve already covered this above in my discussion on megapixels and image sensors – but due to the larger size of image sensors in DSLRs which allows for larger pixel sizes – DSLRs are generally able to be used at a faster ISO which will lead to faster shutter speeds and less grain. Adaptability – DSLR’s ability to change lenses opens up a world of possibilities for photographers. While my point and shoot has a nice little 3x Optical Zoom (and many these days have longer ones) my DSLR can be fitted with many high quality lenses ranging from wide angle to super long focal lengths depending upon what I’m photographing (and of course my budget). Add to this a large range of other accessories (flashes, filters etc) and a DSLR can be adapted to many different situations. It should be noted that when it comes to lenses that the diversity in quality of lenses is great. Image quality is impacted greatly by the quality of the lens you use. Speed – DSLR’s are generally pretty fast pieces of machinery when it comes to things like start up, focussing and shutter lag. Optical Viewfinder – due to the reflex mirror DSLR’s are very much a what you see is what you get operation. large ISO range – this varies between cameras but generally DSLRs offer a wide array of ISO settings which lends itself to their flexibility in shooting in different conditions. Manual Controls – while many point and shoots come with the ability to shoot in manual mode, a DSLR is designed in such a way that it is assumed that the photographer using it will want to control their own settings. While they do come with good auto modes the manual controls are generally built in in such a way that they are at the photographers finger tips as they are shooting. Hold it’s value – some argue that...

5 reasons to say no to the pop up/canopy photo booth for sale

By on Feb 1, 2013 in Uncategorized | 1 comment

We get so many calls day after day about people asking us what makes our photo booth for sale better and why they should go with our booth. Lately, a lot of new companies have popped up (literally) and are trying to sell their booth to you. Here are a list of questions we always get asked with my response right underneath… 1. What makes your booth better than the ones that use the canopy/pop up tent? Simply put, would you want a pop up tent at your wedding? Mind you, it may work great for mitzvahs and other events but a majority of everyone’s business will be weddings. Why would you want to put up a tent in such an elegant setting? It just does not go. 2. I like the look of the pop up tent. Why would you say that? Ask these companies how big these booths are from width to height. Now I want you to actually take a tape measure and measure that space out in your room. It takes up A LOT of room! A photo booth is meant to be part of the night… not the main attraction. 3. Does the size really matter? Yes it does! We have rented out thousands of booths before we sold our first one. We do a ton of bridal shows every year. Just this past year we did one where a pop up tent was right across from us and we used that as a perfect example of why to book us… Needless to say, we booked our booth 23 times on the spot. 4. You can fit more people in a pop up tent booth can’t you? Yes, you are right on this. However, with our booth you can simply pull the curtain around and fit 15 people easily. Most people that will use the booth throughout the night will have 2 – 4 guests. Is a huge booth that necessary when you look at it that way? 5. What about setup and transportation??? Yes, some booths literally fold up in a case but do you want a booth that folds up in a case? Our booth is one of the most portable booths...
