Greetings everyone! My name is Peyton Vincent with CEG Interactive, an award-winning company that specializes in photo booth rental in San Diego as well as specialty photo activations nationwide. I first started using Breeze Systems software in 2007 with our very first portable photo booth. Back in those days, we were renting photo booths for weddings and parties but as we expanded our offerings, our clientbase grew to include concert tours, conventions, and sporting events nationwide.
Other than the obvious, a multi-camera array photo booth consists of a system of interconnected cameras that are usually defined as follows:
Rigidly-attached to a curved structure that keeps them from shifting
Aimed at a central point or axis
Evenly-spaced so that the animation effect shifts between the cameras at a constant speed
DSLR cameras and lenses are of the same make/model/focal length. Breeze Multi-Camera is designed to tether exclusively with Canon DSLRs. However, with some custom work, it’s probably possible to use the animator program with image file sets captured by cameras of a different make.
Each camera is fired in either a “chase” where there’s a specified delay between each angle which creates a “virtual dolly” and/or slow motion bullet time effect OR they are all fired at the exact same instant to create a true “time freeze” effect.
I’m a visual guy (which is probably why I’m a photo booth nerd instead of a writer) so lets move on to the fun stuff…photo examples! I will end this first article with a multi-camera comparison guide that shows you how the number of cameras, type of backdrop, triggering method, etc can create a wide variety of different effects.
