Prop boxes are especially fun in conjunction with video booths, those that feature the ability to record small pieces of video in addition to traditional photo strips.
While there is always the traditional vertical 4-photo strip, the classic of early photo booths, there are many advancements in photo booth technology, like the video booths mentioned above. Another new feature of some booths that is sure to occupy far too much attention at a party is the flip-book booth.
