Just curious, what lens and camera do you use for your photo booth? I used a 50D and a 17-40L (with an AlienBees B800) last time but didn't care for the results.

The lighting and background is FAR more important than the camera and the lens.

Heck, you could use a rebel with an 18-55 kit lens if you've got the rest of it nailed.

50D and 17-55mm. Use 1-2 LumoPro speedlites. Camera body isn't important. Having a wide lens has been great for us with larger groups. The biggest issue we deal with is trying to get the lighting right while still maintaining a small footprint and keeping it safe with guests around.

In this last instance the lighting was probably the issue. The booth wasn't in the ideal location as far as I am concerned but it was where they wanted it. They enjoyed the photos but I thought they could have been better.

People don't care about photo booth quality. You could use a point and shoot attached to a tripod and still do great. All that matters are the fun things you can do with the photo booth. It's just another part of marketing IMO. I use props and I have everything set up so when people press the trigger, it focuses and triggers, flash, the camera, and the printer. I would supply alcohol too for better photos but I don't have a liquor license .

I use a 20D and an 18-55 EF-S. Doesn't really need more tbh. I'm rocking some Bowens Gemini's for lighting.

Agreed! I use a canon T3 (18-55mm kit lens), 300 watt/sec strobe, and 45" shoot through umbrella.
