Using dslrBooth software, Foto-Pipe has created a half-pipe green screen photobooth allowing guests to take creative photos while in public shopping centers.
Jan, the owner of the Foto-Pipe, is a professional photographer from Germany who came up with the idea after a client asked for an extra large booth. Currently he has two of his foto-pipes set up in shopping centers in Pfäffikon, Switzerland and Cologne, Germany.
dslrBooth’s green screen function allows shoppers to choose a background, strike a pose and be part of a fun scene. The software and unique setup of the photobooth allows for interactive fun where “people have a good time in the shopping-center and can share that with their friends. It is a sort of motivation to get up and go shopping in the real world” says Jan.
We are happy to announce the release of LumaBooth, our professional photo booth app for the iPad. LumaBooth puts you in complete control with fully manual control of the built-in cameras for consistent and high quality photos and prints.

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.
If you’re still reading this, chances are you’re pretty interested. Great! Download a FREE Trial of our software, run it with your GoPro camera and have a blast. We’re very eager to hear what you think of SlowGo, so let us know your feedback and suggestions.
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:
We are glad to announce the release of hashPrinter, a new member of dslrBooth’s line of software, which lets you run your own #hashtag printer using a computer and a printer.
Pick a unique hashtag for your event and hashPrinter will print photos by anyone with that hashtag. hashPrinter can automatically print all photos for this hashtag, or if you wish, guests can select the photos they like and print them out. hashPrinter currently runs on Windows and soon will run on Mac as well.
Exhibiting at WPPI was amazing. We met so many photographers that were utterly excited about our software. We also debuted joyBooth, our portable photobooth enclosure and it was the talk of the convention. Thanks to Elvis for stopping by. Enjoy the pics!
