Photobooth options

<P>I would like to know from other people experiences if building a photobooth on your own its more efficient than buying a photobooth from companies such as MOJO or openairphotobooth? I am very eager to either buy one or build one. If I build one I would like it to be compatible with MAC, ipad compatible, fb/twitter/instagram uploader, and wifi ready. I look forward to launch my small company in the upcoming months. I think this website is great!</P>

    I would go against doing macs in this business.. Take it from me.. I hate windows, and I actually work for apple.. But there's no way around it =. Photobooth software isn't really Mac friendly.



    As far as building... If you're comfortable with a power drill and tools, then do it yourself.. You'll learn along the way. If you don't wanna deal with getting dimensions and all that jazz, then do what alot of others are doing and buy from the company that already knows what they're doing.



    (I built myself, but that's me)

    <font face="Arial, Verdana" size="2">I would agree with Minh. I would stay away from a Mac software, and quite honestly there isn't very many to choose from.</font><div style="font-family: Arial, Verdana;font-size: 10pt;font-style: normal;font-variant: normal;font-weight: normal;line-height: normal">

    I have to also add... Stress levels go through the roof when making one ;)

    Through the roof??? Guess it's just me, but I find it extremely relaxing when I'm in my woodshop...especially assembling booths. Just spent a couple hours installing a few cameras and strobes in some units. Feel better now than I did when I walked in there!<div>
