Buying guide for 360 photo booth

What GoPro model to choose? What is the best laptop for 360 booth?

Why 5Ghz is must-have for wi-fi adapters and many more in this guide.


What camera models does the software work with?

The software works with GoPro 5, 6,7, 8, 10, 11 Black.

It doesn't work with Silver, etc because these versions don't have 120/240 FPS which you need for the proper slo-mo.


What's the best camera?

We prefer GoPro 10 and 11 Black model. You won't see difference in quality between them.


Wi-Fi adapter

We recommend buying a Wi-Fi adapter, so you could connect to 2 Wi-Fi networks from the same laptop. We mostly use TP-Link adapter which can work with 5Ghz. Check this one, for example. Basically, any adapter that works with 2,4 and 5Ghz will be perfect.


Wi-Fi router

Your router doesn't need to cover a lot of square ft, but check that more than 20 people can connect to it if you plan using a local sharing.

Laptop

Our software can work on any Windows (not Chrome or MAC) laptop. But rendering speed will be different.

If you select the new laptop, then check that there is SSD in it and 8 GB of RAM (or more).

Check that there's written Core i5 or Core i7 and it's the latest generation.

For chroma key, it's better to select the laptop with a good video card - NVIDIA GTX 3050, 3060. But for the standard videos, Intel video card will be fine too.



For example, you see ASUS Vivobook 15.6 Full HD Intel Gen 10 Core i7-1065G7 8GB RAM 1TB HDD + 256GB SSD Win 10 Laptop. So you see that it's core i7 which is good. And after this you see 1065. It means that it's 10 generation, which is rather new and powerful. If you see core i7 - 3770, then it's 3 generation released in 2012, and I wouldn't recommend buying it.

The same thing is with Core i5.

We see SSD which is good. This laptop has 8GB RAM which is also fine.

It also has Windows 10 which is perfect.

There's no info about the video card, so most probably it's some Intel graphics which is fine for the standard videos. But if you plan to work with a green screena lot, then I would recommend finding the laptop with the better video card.


Power bank and cable

For the GoPro it's better to select the power bank with type-c and fast charge. And type-c power delivery cable, of course.

If you plan using the booth with our Triangle light, then I would recommend checking this guide.
