A Digital Camera is the most common type of camera used in photo booths, mainly because of the ease of use. In addition, digital cameras allow online access and photo customization. Today’s photo booth clientele typically ask that their pictures be shared easily with the party guests; digital cameras fulfil this type of requests, whereas other types of cameras only provide pictures taken during the event. The other advantage of digital cameras is that you can stream photos live through a Wi-fi connection; streaming photos can go to shared boxes, social media, and local hard drives. The other thing to point out about digital cameras is that they utilize a software to print photos, as well as store the pictures instantaneously.
