You will need to purchase a remote camera cable separately which is specific to your camera. Check our Cable Finder to identify the one you will need. Use this kit in conjunction with your own camera and flash.
How to Set Up your Photo Booth
Connect the pedal to one of the PlusX radios. Elevate the PlusX at least 6-12 inches off the ground. Use a tripod or light stand for best results. Set it to Channel 1.
Put a second PlusX in your camera’s hot shoe and also set it to Channel 1. Connect the PlusX to your camera with the remote camera cable. Place the camera on a tripod or sturdy surface. For best results set the camera to manual focus and lock down the focus.
Connect the third PlusX to the flash via the appropriate flash sync cable. Set this PocketWizard to Channel 2. We used Channel 1 and Channel 2 in our example but you can use any Channel you like, just be sure to use the same Channel for the radios connected to the camera and foot pedal and use a Channel that is one higher on the PocketWizard connected to the flash. This is called Relay Mode.
Use any type of photography light that you choose as long as it has a sync port for a flash sync cable.
The guests simply push the pedal with their foot to take their photo. Add a fun backdrop and props and you are good to go!
We set one up at our summer company picnic! Good thing we’re not camera shy!
