      I am a performance artist and bought this machine for a small venue and it worked great. It's extremely easy to use and with the push of one button you get a dense fog.

      Some things to note, the machine needs time to reheat before dispersing more fog and I put this in my bag with some of the liquid still in it and it leaked all over the bag. Next time I will bring transport it empty or in a plastic bag.

      I purchased this for fog effects during an in-studio bike-n-babe shoot. I was pleasantly surprised how well it worked for such a low cost. Wanted low fog that would stay on the ground. I took my garage vac, attached the long tubes and rectangular end on the hose and ran the fog through that. It came out wide and low and stayed there for quite some time. Simple solution.

      The only thing I didn't like about it was you couldn't hold the button for too long or it stopped working and you had to wait for it to work again, which seemed to be a random length of time.

        Comments about American DJ Mini Fog Portable Fog Machine (120VAC):

        This worked very well and was easy to set up and use. The only down side was that it doesn't operate automatically, you need to push the remote button and hold it down to make the smoke.
        I also hoped that it might be enough to make a very thin layer of smoke in a larger room, but the smoke dissipates too quickly for this small machine to keep up, so keep that in mind.

              This fog machine works well, but could use some improvement. After each use it tends to leak, not sure if it is fog juice or condensation. I have to pack it in a plastic tub and put a towel underneath it. I wanted to use it for some interesting interview lighting effects, but haven't found the right gig for it.

                      I bought this fog machine to add dimension to my photography. I have to say, for the price and quality, this is a must have for any photographer!
                      It puts out plenty of fog, more than enough to meet my needs.

                          I now can add that special look to studio portraits when I need them.
                          Heats up very fast, just wish it put out a bit more fog. For the size and price I have to say it does a good job.

                                      This is a good fog machine, but I wish I wish it were battery operated. It would make taking it on photo shoots much more convenient.
                                      Other than that, does exactly what it's meant to.
