In less than a week, the video has already garnered over 7.6 million views and 1.3 million likes, and it’s easy to see why. The high-tech device has a front camera that makes selfies child’s play. The portable photo box can not only be hung on the wall or door, but also has an integrated stand on the back so that you can also place it on a table. All you have to do is add photo paper, hit the red button, take a step back and take a pose.
Once your photo is taken, you can return to the photo booth screen, where you can choose from a number of editing functions. You can add filters, stickers, text and frames, and even draw your own message or design on the screen. Once you’re happy with your picture, just hit Print and wait for your photo to print from the bottom of the device.

The photos are printed on 2 x 3 inch photo paper that has a sticky back – making them a great option to add to a scrapbook or photo album. You can also add an SD memory card to the photo box to digitally store all the photos, and the device gives you a QR code to share your pictures on your smartphone as well.
Amazon shoppers are also fans of the compact photo box. One reviewer liked it so much he called it “amazing” before telling potential buyers, “You will NOT regret this purchase.” While buyers and @rileechastain are all raving about how easy it is to use the device, the only downside mentioned is that you can only add a handful of photo paper at a time. So you should definitely stock up ($ 14.99 for 30 (orig. $ 24.70; amazon.com) and have a stack on hand if you plan to take a lot of photos at once.
While the portable photo booth is definitely one of the coolest things we’ve seen in a while, it’s a $ 350 investment. But if you have a bunch of special events planned in the near future and you want to celebrate them with fun snaps of you and your loved ones, it seems well worth the price. See for yourself what all the hype is about and buy it here.
