What Is a 360 Photo Booth?
Many People Ask, "What Is the 360 Photo Booth?"
As mentioned above, it is the hottest thing in town! It’s a video camera that circles around your guests who are standing on a platform shooting video as it twirls.
Technically, it’s a 360 video circling arm – there’s no booth. It’s a bit misnamed since you don’t take photos so much as you shoot slow motion video, and your guests do not go into a booth, they stand on a platform.
The guests can do all kinds of fun and crazy things as they stand on the platform letting the video camera slowly spin capture it all. Once the video has been captured, it can be shared to the guests. They can share it to their social media pages as well as store it in the cloud or on their mobile device.
The 360 photo booth, when purchased, does not come with a camera. However, it supports a number of multimedia choices, including cell phones, tablets, GoPro video cameras, and DSLR cameras.

The ring light is an important part of your 360 photo booth. It is a light that encircles the camera. This ensures that you have sufficient light to capture high quality video. If you are shooting video in dark areas you’ll definitely need this light.
If you’re shooting your 360 video outside on a bright day, you will most likely find that the light is not required. It’s always a good idea to test with and without the ring light when you set up the 360 photo booth.
