Once again we were invited back to The HSBC Fan Zone at The Open 2016 hosted at Royal Troon Golf Course. We were tasked with adapting our iPad Gif Booth to make it look as if it was old fashioned, to represent the history of the course. We set to work on acquiring an old bellows camera and mahogany tripod which after several hours of DIY was finally ready to mount an iPad Pro mini. We use the iPad pro mini as the front facing camera is far superior to all other models of iPads. This allows for much greater image quality, which as professional photographers is important for us. Here’s a little video of it working. You can see the whole scene below.
The GIF booth system was manned by an operator for 10 days and worked without any issues what so ever. Each day we were able to remotely monitor all of the uploads, texts/emails/facebook/twitter/instagram. We also provided the client with analytics to show the social spread each day, by the end of the tournament our GIF’s had been viewed over 20,000 times on various peoples social media accounts.
