dslrBooth for Windows v7.44 – Sony Camera Support
Elevate Your Photo Booth Experience with Our New Sony Camera Integration
We’ve got some exciting news that many of you have been eagerly waiting for! Starting today, dslrBooth, your favorite photo booth app for computers, is officially compatible with Sony mirrorless cameras. We decided to extend our support to Sony cameras after extensive testing, particularly in capturing high-speed footage at 240 fps.
Advantages of Using Sony Cameras with dslrBooth:
- High Frame Rates: Models like the Sony FX3 and FX30 offer frame rates that reach up to 240 fps in Full HD, perfect for capturing stunning slow-motion videos.
- Advanced Autofocus: Sony’s Real-time Eye Autofocus and Real-time Tracking technologies are some of the best in the industry. They provide smooth and reliable focus, which is especially beneficial when shooting slow-motion videos in a dynamic environment like a photo booth.
- Stabilization: The effective 5-axis in-body and lens stabilization are invaluable for handheld videography and can also offer significant advantages when the camera is mounted on a robot.
- Heat Management: Sony has focused on improving heat dissipation in its latest models, allowing for longer recording times without the risk of overheating.
