Booth 2.5 Overview

When we posted our Booth 2.5 Preview video with the screen shot above we received lots of questions about the photo booth set up in the picture. It is the Vu-2 Kit from Tether Tools. We like it for testing and demonstrating as all the components are visible and easy to adjust and remove. It is great for event photography but can also be used as an “open air” style photo booth. Here is a detailed description from our friends at Tether Tools.

Studio Vu-2 Kit from Tether Tools Quickly and Easily Turns Your Gear into a Photo Booth
