A GIF loop is a special feature in a photo booth that strings together several photos into an animated image.

The glam filter touches up a photo to make it look like it was taken by one of the world’s foremost fashion photographers. Your customers who want to post pictures on social media that make them look like supermodels are going to love the glam filter.
Lip Syncing Booths
Imagine how popular your business would be if your customers could create short videos of them lip syncing to the latest hits with your photo booth. Music has always been a popular draw for the type of audience that is attracted to photo booths, but it has always been difficult to bring music and a photo booth together. Lip syncing booths solve that problem by giving people the chance to churn out professional looking videos of them lip syncing to their favorite songs.
