Video Booth is mainly intended to record video and take snapshots from your webcam. The tool is extremely easy to use, so I do not think anyone can have difficulties working with it. The most difficult part is probably configuring the input device, but you can skip it and use the default values instead.

As for snapshots, the program allows taking a single shot or four in a row. In continuous shooting mode screen flashes let you know when a photo will be taken. Grabbing video from your webcam is also easy as you only need to press the corresponding button to start capturing footage. The tool also allows recording audio from any of the available devices.

You can say that performing all of this functions is possible with your system’s built-in tools. However, Video Booth comes with some interesting effects you can have a lot of fun with. Unluckily, some of them do not work. Still, there is one more advantage: the program conveniently keeps a record of your activity as a series of thumbs. Just a click on the desired one and you can preview the video or shot.

All in all, Video Booth has nothing special, except perhaps the effects. Although the product is advertised as freeware, it is actually a textbook example of shareware. In any case, what is the use of a program of this type that will not allow you to export the results? So, it is necessary to pay for its pro version to get rid of the nag screen, have access to extra effects and share your videos and pictures on Facebook.
