OK, so an earlier post explained some of the differences between a Magic Mirror Selfie Booth and a Photobooth. But where did the Magic Mirror come from and why?
Talking mirrors have been around in cinema for many years since Disney’s Snow White and the seven dwarfs hit the big screen. In Snow White, the evil queen had a Magic Mirror to remind her of her beauty with the famous line “Mirror Mirror on the wall, who is the fairest of us all”.
More recently, the Magic Mirror has made an appearance in the Shrek series of films. In these films, the mirrors comment on the reflection they see. This concept has been combined with the ever popular trend of taking selfies in a full-length mirror to capture a full-length image.
A Magic Mirror Selfie Booth uses a high-quality DSLR combined with an industry standard printer (no wet ink jet prints!) to provide full-length selfie prints in seconds.
The Magic Selfie Mirror was originally developed in the US and made their way across the UK during the later part of 2016. There are thought to over 5,000 traditional photo booths in the UK, whilst the number of Magic Mirror Selfie Booths is under 500.
At the 2017 Photography show, there were more suppliers of Magic Mirrors and photopods than traditional photobooths.
