Photo Booth APP
Which Photo Booth App Should I use?
There are a few Professional iPad Photo Booth apps available.
Luma Booth: https://dslrbooth.com/lumabooth-photo-booth-app
This app is the most cost effective we've found so far. You can use the app for $20 a month for the BASIC or $60 a month for the BEST which includes analytics, online Gallery, unlimited events and use on multiple iPads at once and more customization options. This app sends photos via text or email. You can do photos, GIFs and Boomerang and can also airprint if you have a compatable printer.

LOTS OF GREAT FEATURES
Can the photo booth run on a battery?
YES. The photo booth can operate on a batterypack available in the order form.
You can get about 5-6 hours of power.
How much does it weigh?
The Head unit weighs about 7lbs and the LED stand weighs about 8 lbs.
Can I control the led lights?
YES. It comes with remote controllers that allow you to change the light colors. On the head unit you can change the light colors and patterns and has over 200 preset effects.
How much is shipping?
I'm not exactly sure yet, we will send you an invoice once your unit is ready to be shipped. We ship you the head unit, travel case and pole mount. The tripod stand is shipped separately, but don't worry the stand is free shipping in teh U.S.
What size ipad does it use?
This Head unit holds the 12.9" iPad Pro
We chose to use this size because it looks more impressive to your clients and guests. It doesn't look like an Ipad, because most people are not used to seeing the large ipad. Here is a tip:
The 1st Gen 12.9" only has a 1.2MP front camera.
The 2nd Gen 12.9" has a 7MP front camera and this is a MUCH BETTER OPTION.
With that being said, the 1st gen still looks nice for the size of photos you are outputting and you can find them used on craigslist, Facebook Marketplace or OfferUp.com for around $500-$600.
How long does it take to ship?
The photo booths are offically starting to ship as of 7/19/2018.
We do have to do some assembly so please allow 1-5 business days before we ship. Then whatever Ground shipping takes from Florida.
Does it need to be attended while in use?
This photo booth is so easy to use that it doesn't need an attendant to look after it. Of course like anything, just use common sense. If you are doing a party and kids are going crazy, it may be a good idea to just have someone looking over it. We send our photo booth out to many parties and events unattended and it has come back in perfect shape every time.
Do I need any other equipment on the side?
All you need is the Rainbow Lite unit and a Photo booth app mentioned above to run a successful party.
If you want to buy extra items it will only add to the experience:
But not necessary
Do I need Internet or Wifi to operate the Rainbow Lite?
YES & NO.
Yes you do need WIFI for the guests to send their photos via TEXT or EMAIL, I usally ask the client for their WIFI password if we are setting up inside of a building. If we are setting up outside like at a park, We use a wifi hotspot and it works perfectly. NOW, if you lose signal or dont have internet at all, the ipad app will save the photos to your ipad and also keeps the photos in a queue so that when your ipad is connected to WIFI later, the photos will send.
How long does the booth take to set up at a gig?
You can set up in less then 1 minute :)
We will post videos next week on how to set up your Rainbow Photo Booth at a gig.
Am I buying a full business with support and everything I need to be sucessful?
We're not selling a business / franchise.
We're selling a tool, a fancy enclosure and stand that we designed and had fabricated for you to add your own iPad and app / software for you to make your own business or to add to your exisisting business.
As we would LOVE to spend every second of our day helping you and teaching you everything about the photo booth business. We just can't. Like everything, YOU will have to do research, learn how to use whichever app you choose to use, go through the trial and errors that any successful business owner goes through.
We are trying to add a lot of Q&A's to help with some of the questions, we see that most of the questions are about what the Apps can or can't do. The BEST way we can answer is this......
Go to the app website and most of your questions can be answered there if not, every app also has a Facebook page with active users that can help you answer any questions. We don't own the apps, so we don't offer app support. :)
How should I price this out to clients?
It's totally up to you.
I rent mine out as an "Unattended Photo Booth" Meaning That my client picks up the photo booth from my office, sets it up at their party and returns it.
I charge $499 for 24 hours.
That business model is not for everyone. On average a normal photo booth rental with prints props and backgrounds around $250 per hour So if I were renting out The Rainbow Photo Booth out by the hour. I would probably be at $150-$200 per hour with an attendant, the attendant doesnt have to to much except babysit the booth. I usally pay someone $10-$12 an hour.
Is there a warranty?
There is a 1 year (365 days) warranty on the power/lighting or defects on the head unit.
No warranty on the tripod stand because it gets beatup so much I would'nt be able to tell if its defective from teh factory or from being thrown around. DO NOT OVER TIGHTEN THE KNOBS THEY WILL STRIP OUT.
Warranty does not cover the unit being dropped or other damage.
Many people ask how long do LEDs last. Under ideal conditions LEDs are rated for 50,000 hours. Thats about six years of continuous use.
