Save Settings Per Event
You can now pre-configure each of your events in dslrBooth with different settings. This will make it easy to run multiple events on a busy weekend or to have different presets for your booths that you can switch to quickly. You can do this from the Event dropdown in the main menu. When creating a new event, you can copy its settings from an existing event as well.
Re-sort Template Dropdown
Sort template dropdown by date modified or alphabetically.
Hide Retake/Cancel Button
You have the option to hide the retake/cancel button. This is useful if you accept payment for your booths using a coin or credit card acceptor or if you simply don’t want guests to have the option to retake photos. Settings > Display > Capture Screen.
Sending SMS to Other Countries
You can now send SMS messages to countries different than your Twilio From number. This is useful if you want to send from a different country than where your guests are located and is useful for countries that don’t have SMS sending numbers yet. Add the country code for your country in Settings > Sharing > SMS. The Country Code will get prepended to your guests number in the background so they don’t have to enter it in.

Imagesby2 Event Photography & Photo Booth rentals located in Los Angeles, CA recently used the dslrBooth software for a party celebrating the hit show The Four. In attendance were the host and judges Fergie, PDiddy, Meghan Trainor, Dj Khaled and Son Asahd.
Tulio & Joanne Diaz, owners of Imagesby2, have been in the photography business for 6 years, with 3 years in photobooths. The majority of their events include small VIP and celebrity gatherings for birthday parties and shows such as The Four. They have worked with celebrities such as Jamie Foxx, Quincy Jones and Brie Larson.

“I use a custom setup I designed and built. I got the idea from an old Chanel suitcase I saw at a vintage shop, its wood in white leather with brass tacks” says Tulio, “you have to have something that is not “over the counter” and stands out at the venue.”
Imagesby2 uses the suitcase sitting on a single pole speaker stand, carrying a Nikon D750 DSLR with Sigma 24-70 Art lens, Nikon 950 flash with convertible Dell Laptop and a DNP RXHS1 Printer.

Social Exposure located in Melbourne, Australia recently used the dslrBooth software for a video booth at a charity event for Unicef and Star Wars.
At the Powerhouse Museum in Sydney, Australia, Star Wars Ultimate Fan Weekend brought in 22,000 Star War fans. Social Exposure challenged the guests to record a video doing their best Chewbacca Roar. Each public post, like or share on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter tagged with the hashtag #RoarForChange, raised a $1 donation towards Unicef. The campaign reached its ultimate goal of one million dollars in just over 24 hours!
Social Exposure used an open booth set up equipped with a Surface Pro tablet and Canon T5i along with external microphone and LED panel. Using the Virtual Attendant in dslrBooth, Social Exposure added real Chewbacca sounds to entertain the attending guests.
