Effects on photo booth

The biggest improvement in the photo booth industry is in the camera technologies. Back then, only the serious hobbyists and professional photographers were able to buy DSLRs because of its price. Compare that to today where anyone can buy their own DSLR without having to break bank. The thing that allowed for this to happen is the constant improvements in camera technology. Because of the improvement in camera technology, camera manufacturers were able to lower the price of their DLSR and make it available to a wider range of people. The availability of DSLRs to people made photography a mainstream hobby which opened up the photo booth rental industry.
