DIY Instagram Photo Booth: Say Filter!
March 28th, 2013
Instructables member Alexander Morris made a photo booth that looks like the app icon of the popular image sharing service Instagram. If you’re a fan of the service you might be disappointed to know that Alexander didn’t actually integrate Instagram or any image editing service into the photo booth. But Alex more than makes up for it with the quality of his build.
Just by looking at it you can already tell that Alexander has some serious crafting skills. Inside the beautiful case are two Nikon SB900 flash guns, a Nikon D3200 camera with an 18-55mm lens, a TV that serves as the viewfinder and an Arduino microcontroller to run things. It also has two seven-segment LEDs, but I’m not sure what they display. Perhaps a timer and a total image count?
Think you’ve got the skills to make one? Then head to Alexander’s Instructables page for the instructions. Otherwise stick with the Instagram app, or wait for one of these, because Alexander isn’t selling the photo booth.
