Sooo...I just came home from the California State Fair and while I was there, I reluctantly agreed to take a photo booth picture with my good friends. Anyways, as the photos were processing I looked around the unit and I looked at the stamped registration placard and I noticed it was made by the Photo Booth Corporation of America (or something close) and it was made in the mid 80's! I guess the funky looking font on the front of the booth should have given it right away.
But anyways, after the photo's came out, I was pleasantly delighted with the smell of an unwashed print. The thing reeked of fixer!
But this brings me to my question. Who the heck makes the film for this stuff? I'm guessing it uses that black and white paper that comes out as a positive when developed. I've looked everywhere online for any supplier of film but I've had no luck.
I'm just wondering this because it would be very sad to see these things go away. The pictures look amazing! Digital could never match the amount of character thats on my print...
^Here's a link of a booth that looks extremely similar to the one I used.
