Frequently Asked Questions
Yes. Bird Photo Booth is designed to withstand adverse weather conditions. In fact we have had several Bird Photo Booth's setup outdoors for over a year and a half. One is located in New York where is has held up very well through the rain and snow. The other is located in Los Angeles, where is has resisted sun damage exceptionally well. (Even on 100 degree plus days) That being said, Bird Photo Booth is water resistant and not water tight. Meaning it can not be submerged under water. During a severe rain storm your devices will be safe inside, but we advise it is best to use common sense and remove your device from Bird Photo Booth.Last updated:

1.) Unlike other bird cams that you have to setup to point arbitrarily at unattractive bird feeders, in hopes of capturing that cute garden bird, Bird Photo Booth's innovative design combines a camera housing and a bird feeder in one device. This combination invites birds for photo sessions just inches away from the camera, and gives you a unique dramatic face on perspective that you cant achieve with any other device.
2.) Current motion-activated bird cams integrate disappointingly cheap low-res cameras that you cant see or control remotely in real time. (There is no interaction between you and the birds) With Bird Photo Booth you become the photographer remotely watching, photographing, and enjoying birds posing in real time on your mobile devices! It become a real life interactive video game!
3.) Bird Photo Booth's adjustable height and distance bird food dish lets you control and adjust where birds will land and how to compose them in frame. You can choose to capture the entire bird or just the face up close.
4.) Using your iPhone or GoPro camera in combination with the provided macro lens, gives you image quality that is vastly superior to any other existing bird cam on the market.
5.) Using a smart phone gives you the ability to instantly edit and share bird photos with others online. Other bird cams and cameras require many more steps to edit and share images.
6.) Use and experiment with all the apps available on iOS and android which can do everything from motion activated shutters, sound activated shutter, time lapse, etc....
7.) Bird cams and technology in general become quickly obsolete, Bird Photo Booth uses interchangeable foam inserts to embrace future technologies and devices.Last updated:
