Portable

We took great care in designing a system that is practical in its use, allowing you to focus on your clients rather than cumbersome setup times.

Elegant

When it comes to events, appearance is quite important which is why we designed the SL-1 to be sleek and compliment any setting.

Reliable

When you have a line of 40 people waiting for their turn you need a system that is going to work quickly and flawlessly.


Why The SL-1?

The SL-1 has gone through extensive testing over the last 2 years at events of all kinds. From being outside during a snow storm to poolside with kids splashing and adults accidentally spilling beer on it, the SL-1 has seen it all. More importantly though, thousands of hours have gone into the design and the functionality of the unit. The SL-1 has been designed to be a workhorse that can handle whatever you throw at it as well be easy to set up and break down, all while being the best looking “photo booth” available. We believe that we have built the most comprehensive photo capture system available.

What’s Inside?

To replicate a pro photo studio we started with the beautiful, shadowless light of a Ringflash, chose a Canon camera/lens combo for capture and decided on an Apple computer to be the brains of the operation. Of course relying on the rock-solid printing power of the DNP DS40 was a no brainer. We then wrapped the entire thing in a simple and beautiful package that is guaranteed to turn heads and impress your clients. Of course it was also designed to be very light weight and durable, making your life easier.

Lighting

Simply put, photography is the capture of light. Beautiful light translates to a beautiful photograph and that is exactly why the SL-1 was designed around the beautiful, shadowless light of the ring flash. It lights everyone in front of the camera even in the darkest of settings and produces a high-key effect that compliments all complexions, making the subjects look like celebrities.

Camera & Lens

Another integral part of good photography is the capture system. It’s widely known that Canon cameras and lenses are the industry standard because of their excellent build quality, superb components and high quality optics. What you may not know is that they also reproduce reds and yellows better than any other camera out there which translates into more vibrant and natural looking skin tones.

Computer & Printer

The SL-1 has beautiful light and a top-notch capture system but it wouldn’t be anything without a power plant that can keep pace and and perform under the intense demand to record and produce tens of thousands of photos. The creative community has long realized the power and reliabilty of Apple computers which is why we use a Mac as the brains of the operation. We also called on the rock-solid printing power of the DNP DS-40 to produce a constant flow of beautiful photos to keep our guest’s smiling.

Absolutely! We took great care in designing a modular system that is not only light weight and durable but also compact and easy to transport. The whole point of the SL-1 is form and function. We don’t expect you to have to buy a new suv just to accommodate it!
The Sl-1 comes with an incredible work horse, the Apple Mac-mini. We chose the Mac mini for it’s rock solid reliability, fantastic warranty and ease of use.
We use the Canon SL1 DSLR and the Canon 18-55mm STM lens
Simply put, photography is the capture of light. With that in mind, lighting is hands down the most important ingredient for high quality photos. That is why we choose the beautiful, shadowless light of the ring flash. It lights large groups of people equally and has a very minimal amount of fall off, meaning that everyone in the photo is well lit and looking their best!
Absolutely! The SL-1 comes with the top of the line DNP DS-40 which allows you multiple print options.
Yes. At SocialLight we see each event as an opportunity to enhance the overall experience for our client as well as the guests. We over see all elements of the photo area allowing our clients to focus on more important things.
Yes and no. We strongly recommend not having a touch screen but if you absolutely need one, we can do that. A touchscreen works well in a stand alone, unmanned booth but for the SL-1, it doesn’t make sense. By allowing each guest to spend time on the touchscreen you slow down the flow of the event which translates to long wait times for other guests. We also provide a more efficient solution for clients to retrieve their images as well as Social Media sharing.
We recommend a fantastic company in Texas called Imaging Spectrum. They are an incredible wealth of knowledge and have incredible customer service.
