Here at SnapStation, we believe that a brilliant photo booth requires more than just the equipment. We pride ourselves on our service, personalisation and design, however that doesn’t mean we have neglected the quality of equipment we use! We will give you a behind the scenes look at some of the equipment that allows SnapStation to create those memorable, hilarious, or just ridiculously silly photo booth moments.
The business end of the photo booth requires a camera capable of catching all those crazy poses. We use our trusty, high quality Canon DSLR camera to make your photos truly pop!
When designing our Vintage Retro booth, we wanted to ensure we had a system that was user friendly and reliable and so we use a Surface Pro 4 tablet. There are two features we love about this system. Your pictures will look amazing when viewed on this screen, and secondly it has a touchscreen that will make it very easy for all your guests to use.
When taking any pictures lighting is important. This is especially important in a photo booth when you are trying to pull your signature pose. The last thing you want is a dark picture. To ensure you can capture ‘that pose’ and share the memory with friends we use a Elinchrom studio flash head paired with a beauty dish. This set-up is ideal for the SnapStation booth as it not only looks good accentuating the vintage feel, it ensures that most of the light is focused where it matters, on the people using the booth.
After using a photo booth, the last thing you and your guests want is to wait to see how your best poses turned out. To ensure that is not the case we use a DNP printer that can produce high quality printed photo strips in a matter of seconds. No long waits for the printer, and no need to shake it like a polaroid! If you opt for the Premium or Luxe packages the printer prints two copies, one for your guest and one to add to your guest book.
Accessories and props:
At SnapStation we ensure we go to every event prepared. That’s why we like to take spare cables, a mobile hotspot and other accessories to ensure that you and your guests make the most of the booth. Our awesome prop box is filled with signs, hats, inflatables and stick props to make your pictures stand out.
