Photo booths are seeing a renaissance in the world of photography recently. We’re not so much talking about the photo booths you’ll find at the mall, where you feed them a dollar and they take your picture. We’re talking about little contraptions that pros are building/buying nowadays and bringing along with them to parties and wedding shoots.
One great example is the Instagram-inspired DIY photo booth put together by Alexander Morris. Unfortunately, that one required a bit of electrical DIY skill to put together yourself, so for those of you looking for something similar minus the DIY part, Photoboop may be the perfect solution.
Photoboop is a portable, battery-powered add-on that turns any DSLR into a photo booth. You just strap it to your tripod, connect the Photoboop using the remote cable and … that’s it.
Anyone at the event can walk up, press the green button, and have 4 pictures snapped of them and their friends in quick succession. And when you’re not at an event, you can use the Photoboop’s intervalometer feature to snap time-lapses.
The Photoboop comes in two models, black acrylic for $180 or wood for $190. Once you’ve bought it, it’s yours to keep and use as many times as you see fit. Alternatively, if you’re not interested in dropping almost 200 bucks on a Photoboop of your own — or if you don’t have a camera to use with it — they have also built a rentable version.
