Win clients with uniquely stunning hardware design, exclusive build quality, pro-grade photo quality and operational reliability.


Easy To Transport

Weighing in at just 30.4 lbs (13.8 kg), the Retro Photo Booth has the most portable build on the market and is light enough for anyone to use.

When collapsed for transportation, the Retro Photo Booth’s head measures 18.1″ × 16.5″ × 7.9″, the tripod measures 7.9″ × 7.9″ × 19.5″ and they both fit inside cars as small as common hatchbacks.

Most importantly it saves you time, staff wages, transport costs and hassle so that you can make more profit from your work.

Fast to Set Up

The Retro Photo Booth can be fully set up in a few minutes by a single person.

The tripod’s adjustable height locks into place using spring loaded pins.

The head is secured to the tripod using a single, heavy-duty lock nut.


Durable Build

There have been no corners cut in the design of the original Retro Photo Booth.

Aircraft-grade aluminum, stainless steel and hard wearing powder coated shells stand the test of time and make up the clean finish of the product.


Pro-Grade Photo & Video Quality

With high quality studio camera and lighting the image quality is superb and will leave your customers buzzing about the experience.

The Retro Photo Booth captures professional-grade photographs and videos with a Canon DSLR camera of your choice mounted inside the head unit.

Using the easily adjustable orientation, angle, and zoom, you can extend the shot way beyond the perceived size of the photo booth and capture any kind of audience size; be it single, couple, or even large groups (up to 50 people in one shot).

Camera settings can be controlled through Foto Master’s photo booth software. Software-based camera control allows you to preset event-specific camera configurations and fine-tune them on-the-fly without physically accessing the camera.

For professional lighting, the Retro Photo Booth supports mounting a strobe flash, monolight, umbrella, reflector, softbox, beauty dish and diffuser.


Hardware Branding & Styling

The Retro Photo Booth is provided with hardware branding & styling template files that make it easy for you to vinyl wrap the head unit with any design you desire.


Color Options

The Retro Photo Booth is available for purchase with Black or Maple coated shells.


High-Definition Slideshows

The Retro Photo Booth supports connecting a high-definition monitor, TV or projector to feature an eye-catching slideshow of captured photos.

  2. You’ll be able to set the software up for AI based background removal with the help of a third-party API service.
  3. You’ll be able to add a Kinect sensor to your setup, allowing the software to automatically detect human figures and remove the background around them.

Overlay Selection

The overlay selection feature is an amazingly fun and easy way for you to let participants choose a preferred overlay for their photos, GIFs and videos before they are printed or shared online.

You’ll be able to set this feature to automatically appear after participants are done capturing their selfies. The participants will then swipe through the overlay designs that you’ll offer and choose their preferred one.

Custom Overlays

Photo Filters

Beauty Photo Filter

The beauty photo filter feature is based on an image processing algorithm developed exclusively by Foto Master for its photo booth software. When enabled, the feature will automatically process and enhance participants’ selfies before they are printed or shared online. You can easily set the filter’s enhancement intensity using dedicated software options.

Extensive work has gone into creating an algorithm which has a subtle yet significant effect while keeping the natural sense of the original image. In order to achieve that, the feature uses adaptive filtering, soft contrast lighting correction, smart noise reduction and preservation of facial features.

Artistic Photo Filters

With the artistic photo filters feature enabled, participants can add various artistic effects and filters to their photos before printing and sharing them. These include ‘Black & White’, ‘Sepia’, ‘Extra Sharp’ and ‘Pencil Sketch’.



You’ll be able to offer an unforgettable photo booth experience by combining touch-based multiplayer games with a selfie keepsake as part of the process.

Included Games

Three interactive games will be available for you to include in an event’s workflow. The included games are ‘3 Shells and a Pea’, ‘Tic-Tac-Toe’ and ‘Connect’.

Custom Games & Apps

In addition to the included collection of games, you’ll be able to develop your own interactive games or apps using Adobe Animate and include them in your events’ workflows.

Upsell and charge more for your services by producing unique games and apps for an event (for example: interactive table plans with a photo at reception, interactive polls, tic-tac-toe featuring the bride and groom as the X’s and O’s, etc).


Interactive Animations

You’ll be able to ramp up excitement with optional interactive animations. Each one of these special animations invites the participants to interact with the photo booth. The end result? Some great laughs and a hilarious photo keepsake!

Screaming Contest: Can you recall those candid shots of you screaming as you ride down a terrifying roller-coaster? The screaming contest features the same idea by inviting participants to reach the highest level of the scream bar as their photo is being taken. The achieved score can be included on the final photo.

Wheel of Fortune: Participants are presented with a spinning wheel of fortune which will determine their ‘selfie fate’. The position at which the wheel stops is randomly determined by the photo booth and instructs the participants on how to pose for their photo.

Slot Machine: A beautiful slot machine with an interactive lever is presented on the screen. Pulling the lever activates the machine. When the jackpot is hit the photo booth captures the winning smile!

Both devices can be used simultaneously, mounted on the photo booth’s casing and connected to the computer using a single concealed USB cable each.

You’ll also be able to present a selection of multiple experiences (see ‘Experience Selection’ feature) and set a different price for each.


Social Distancing & Surface Safety: Remote Interaction Options
