While photo booths are still going strong and very popular for all sorts of events, there’s a new kind of booth that’s gaining traction in events. This booth is called Slow Motion Booth or SloMo Video Booth and the idea is pretty simple yet genius. You record your guests acting out by going crazy, dancing, jumping, kicking, punching, belly flopping, throwing items for a few seconds at a very high speed then playback the video 10x slower. The results speak for themselves.
“We are totally and completely obsesssed with slow-motion video booths.” —Huffington Post
This is the video that started the trend (way before SlowGo was released)
Up until now, the only way to shoot Slow Motion was to use a $7k-$30k camera which is out of the budget for the large majority of folks. Luckily, there are a few cameras on the market now that shoot slow motion (240fps) with very good quality. This got us thinking, perhaps we should help people run slow mo booths similar to how we were pioneers with releasing dslrBooth for running photo booths. The result is our new software SlowGo which connects to your camera, performs a count down, shoots video the slow motion video, downloads it, slows it down, plays it back to your guests and allows them to e-mail it to themselves. As far as we know, this is the only software of its kind available to the public. At this time, SlowGo is compatible with the GoPro Hero4 Black Edition. We’re working to add support for additional cameras in the near future.

What does footage from SlowGo look like? We’ve dome some preliminary tests and it looks great as long as you have enough lighting. We’re putting together a shoot and will share footage with you very soon.
Here’s another example for your entertainment and yes, this too was shot before SlowGo was released:
