- Get “close up” with the Canon EOS R camera. Visitors to the booth can stand in front of a camera rig that will take close up images of their eyes. Once an image is selected, it will be displayed on a larger-than-life screen with the eyes of all the other guests who have taken a photo. This will create a real-time mosaic of eye-color of the attendees to the Canon booth at CES.
- Take a photo among popular landmark, the Grand Canyon with Brizi, the creators of BriziCam, who use Canon cameras and software for their interactive, application controlled, photo taking experience.

- Paint with light thanks to Xangle in a multi-camera photo booth activation to create bullet-time works of art that attendees will receive via email containing a short video of their created images as a souvenir.
- Experience stop-motion animation in real-time. Dragonframe, the masterminds behind such films as “Isle of Dogs” and Disney’s “Frankenweenie” will showcase stop-motion animation technology with a professional animator, Anthony Scott, and an actual puppet used in the movie “The Little Prince” providing attendees a look behind the curtain into the world of movie magic.
