Matterport Pro vs MP Pro 2 3dvirtualview 3 2 months3dvirtualview (49): @DanSmigrod Thank you Dan. I will check them out.
Side by side still photo comparison leeverdon 11 2 monthsDanSmigrod (15730): @MarkCantu Did you know that your WGAN Standard Membership includes two free books (via rebate): ✓ Getting Started in Real Estate Photography ✓ The Business of Real Estate Photography Best, Dan
Are the quality of pro1 tours getting worse? JCHAFE 11 2 monthsjasondavidpage (193): In the first example you provided, those "beams" seem to remind me of when your cell phone lens has been cleaned but there are oils still on the lens. You may need to get a qtip with and alcohol pad or lens cleaning pad and do a thorough cleaning of the protective glass in front of it. On another note, I too have the first version and feel like the processing is getting worse for most scans that I do.
Evolution HarlanHambright 2 3 monthsMeshImages (367): Recently I have re-uploaded an old tour, which could not be processed two years ago (Pro 1). Now it could. Cloud rendering has significantly improved, too. This model is a 7.500 SQM (75.000 SQFT) "Matterport monster". http://forum.we-get-around.com/cached/2faea93f2dd8c0a0791ef92efbaf92ec.gif
Matterport Pro2 versus Pro1 Images 3dshowcaseuk 17 5 monthsmori (565): As a pro DLSR user I would state that MP could never beat the quality of a good DSLR setup when also a pro is behind the cam. But for the average user it should be pretty ok.
Fast Matterport Scan... Wow! ArtisticConcepts 22 5 monthsMontreal3D (130): @ArtisticConcepts Mind to share the OBJ? Would'nt mind to sign NDA, simply have high interest in the current output data.
My Platform Before Matterport... Metroplex360 3 5 monthsron0987 (841): I like it, what was the setup, DSLR, Nodal Ninja, and software would you mine share with us. Still looks great. Ron
Matterport: Faster Scanning for Pro and Pro2 DanSmigrod 18 5 monthshtimsabbub23 (622): Anyone else still waiting on this beta update? I still haven't got mine yet, I signed up 8 hours after it was announced.
photos: MP vs Nikon D810 HarlanHambright 10 6 monthsMetroplex360 (8056): @HarlanHambright While I cannot confirm this, I think that the Matterport Camera does do 5 exposures... just not sure on what the intervals are. Of course, I would suspect that the sensor is by no means comparable to a DSLR - but is quite capable in its own right. @NestorSarmiento It's one of those use-case things. For a Realtor who might not own a DSLR, the Matterport is a single device that can produce photos that are automatically HDR. ...
Hire a Matterport Pro and WeddingWire Metroplex360 9 8 monthsDanSmigrod (15730): @tomasdunbar Imagine that you have a great venue for a wedding, BUT you are not getting as many in-person visits by potential brides. Using a Matterport 3D Tour to help generate more in-person visits, may well be worth the investment. For example, my wife and I stayed at a nice hotel in Atlanta during a recent hurricane. While there, I learned that they do many Indian weddings that typically last three full days and have many out-of-town...
Should I buy a refurbished Matterport Pro1? Liam_Tayler 4 8 monthsMetroplex360 (8056): Resolution, wider color ranger, faster speed. Google Street View publishing at > 100MP per Pano (coming soon). If successful, you'll be able to pay off your camera in no time. AND -- at the current moment and foreseeable future -- Matterport is a trusted brand that is in demand. With the recent integration with Realtor.com, I'm seeing more Realtors appreciate the value in the tool. With the integration of LEICA BLK360 next year, it's...
Matterport Pro2 3D Camera Scan Samples Metroplex360 20 10 monthsMetroplex360 (8056): @JCHAFE Yes, they are better. HDR on windows is still not DSLR quality. I wonder if Matterport just blindly takes each image and HDRs -- rather than spot metering ... that would be interesting if it would spot meter for the brightest and darkest areas.
We've come a long way baby HarlanHambright 13 11 monthsAndrewWilliam23 (64): @HarlanHambright Your current new Pro2 camera scan is superb! Your more seasoned skills and knowledge as a Matterport photographer plus the help of the new Pro2 camera really shows off where you're at now. Fantastic work Harlan! My Pro2 will be here by the end of this month or first few weeks in August....can't wait. You've inspired me!
Matterport Pro2 vs Matterport Pro1 3D Camera HarlanHambright 3 1 yearmori (565): I asked the MP support about the 360 panor download pixel dimensions for the Pro2 which was advertised with 134 Megapixel. What I can download is 4096 x 2048 (= 8.39 Megapixels). Not comparable of course, but my 150 Eur Insta360air can capture 3008 x 1504 (Megapixels = 4.52 Megapixels). What I suggested to get is: Size = 16400 x 8200 = 134480000 pixels Megapixels = 134 Megapixels Aspect ratio = 2.00 Will make an extensive test...

This (free) We Get Around Calculator makes it easy! Best, Dan
Outsourcing to MSPs w/ Pro1 vs Pro2 Queen_City_3D 7 1 yearnat_vanveen (595): @Queen_City_3D Should your original question not also include vetting the ability of the MSP to take good photos LOL... and not just whether they have the latest camera version... won't matter how good the image quality is if the person behind the camera isn't any good at it... ;) Also, have you considered, you may not be able to find an MSP with the latest camera in the location you need???
Dropping like a Rock? More like a Meteor! hometakes 12 1 yearNamecomingsoon (13): @Gerhard agreed. I'm thrilled with the product, the customer experience just leaves a lot to be desired. I just feel like a dummy because like you said- the writing WAS on the wall. Live and learn.
360 Pano Downloads, Teaser Videos, SQFT Metroplex360 Jump to first page37Jump to last page 1 yearJC3DCX (808): Have done it already a few days previously and it works 100%, :-) Just the time to upload, wait for the model and then download the 2x vids and 1 gif. just change something small on the model and then you'll be able to upload again,
Buying a Used Matterport Camera? Pros/Cons DanSmigrod 1 1 yearDanSmigrod (15730): Hi All, This post was was inspired this related Forum discussion. Now that the Matterport Pro2 3D Camera has started shipping, it's likely we will see a flood of used Matterport Pro1 3D Cameras for sale on eBay: especially for those not eligible for a trade-in for the Pro2. Cons 1. Camera may be stolen. Email the serial number to Matterport Support before buying and ask. 2. Camera does not come with a warranty (warranty good for...
$500 Off Pro2 Until 6/30/17 for Pro1 Pros DanSmigrod 2 1 yearDanSmigrod (15730): Note from @Dan Smigrod The App Store shows the new version number 2.3.2 - but shows the app last updated on 16 June 2017. This says to me - WAIT WAIT WAIT until the Update on the App says 21 June 2017. I could imagine that the app has not fully populated the Apple App Store servers around the globe, even though the description has. Yikes! New Capture App - 2.3.2 Last week, we released a new version of the Capture app which supports...
The Next Generation: MatterBabies StevenHattan 30 1 yearVTLV (1090): How can I become a card carrying member of the Matterbabies? We invested in the company being told future product capabilities were coming down the line. The wait times have been frustrating after watching videos from Matt Bell talking about upcoming product capabilities and not seeing the results come to us anytime soon after his announcements. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rt5UaDBAIEg Many members helped speed up the innovation while...

Updated Pro2 Discount and Trade-In Programs Metroplex360 15 1 yearAwesome360 (4): Same thing here. I purchased April 28th 2017 and was told no new cameras are in the works! That is pathetic.
Matterport Sales Rep. Email hometakes 1 1 yearhometakes (808): So I just received this: [7 June 2017] Did you hear the news?

Preparing Matterport for IPO or Acquisition DanSmigrod 8 1 yearVTLV (1090): @DanSmigrod - You hit the nail on the head of where was Matterport is at and where have they come since the beginning. In there, I think the CEO is having issues moving inventory as they try to create better quality and hang onto his job with investors waiting for a return at years 3-5 on their investment. Most right offs happen in the first five years before failing or hiding growth into costs of doing business. It's obvious, that our hosting...
Matterport Pro2 Webinar - All Slides DanSmigrod 8 1 yearFlightMedia (73): Hi Have I read this right if I trade my camera in I will get a refurbished camera with new and second hand parts. Text from Matterport's website. (Note, all Pro2 orders bought in association with the trade-in program will be fulfilled with Certified Refurbished Pro2 3D Cameras. These cameras are built from new and used parts, but have the same performance and carry the same 1-year warranty as a new Pro2 Camera. A little disappointed as when we...
Google Street View Will "Count" Towards Scan DanSmigrod 6 1 yearDanSmigrod (15730): If Matterport does not offer 1-click to export all 360ºs, perhaps one of the 3rd party developers can offer this service. Dan
Dear Matterport, About your new camera... StevenHattan 16 1 yeartomasdunbar (88): I have my camera 8 months. I love the camera but this latest development is going to hurt. I will not be able to afford the new camera and it is a huge slap in the face. The price is significantly less for someone else to enter my market than what I originally paid and they will now have a better camera than me. Matterport have lost my respect
I'm apparently STILL stupid! StevenHattan 29 1 yearHelen (748): I wonder what will happen 8 months from now when a Pro1 camera breaks down? Will there still be the service some people have been getting where they send you out a camera while yours is getting fixed. Or will it be sorry we no longer service that model!
Is the Pro2 a Competitive Advantage? DanSmigrod 8 1 yearjustinv (1015): My prices are going to stay the same with my old camera. I hope everyone in my market upgrades and raises their prices. For the most part, Realtors are cheap here and everywhere else.
Matterport Pro2 Early Bird Increased to $500 DanSmigrod 13 1 year3SixtyNow (220): I received an email today about the updated program to "better support our newest customers" but the trade in value for my camera hasn't changed. So, how is that "better support"?
How fast can you scan with a Pro1 vs Pro2? DanSmigrod 19 1 yearhometakes (808): Ok. Heres one thats 4000 ac and took just 55 scans.
Pro2: I guess I'm Stupid. NOT impressed. StevenHattan 18 1 yearStevenHattan (1510): @mike02h You'll have to ask Ross about that overlay. I'm not sure how he does it. ;) https://wp3dmodels.com/
The Matterport 3D Pro2 Camera is a Joy! Metroplex360 23 1 year3dinsights (40): The transfer speed on the Pro2 at 5Ghz is 2 - 3 times faster than the older 2.4ghz wifi protocol. So if the Pro2 is transferring more data its probably not noticeable as its moving from camera to iPad at a much quicker rate.
Video: Matterport Slams Pro Photographers DanSmigrod 19 1 yearMetroplex360 (8056): @DanSmigrod Without any reservation, I will say that it provides a very viable option for a Realtor with a lot of free time who was previously shooting photos with his/her iPhone. I appreciate Bill Brown's statement that it 'can act as a replacement' and fully support that statement. It infers that the Pro1 was never really an option due to the quality just NOT being good enough for them to promote it as such. In the end, I think it all...
Matterport Pro2 GPS: Why this Matters DanSmigrod 3 1 yearDanSmigrod (15730): Hi All, Imagine that you shoot Matterport: scans indoors and 360º photo spheres outdoors. Today, it is ckludgy to "walk" indoors/outdoors as easily as you do "walking" within scans only. While the 360º photos are discoverable in highlights reel, it's awkward. Now image that since GPS enables Matterport to know exactly where the 360ºs are located, I imagine that in a TBD back-end release, Matterport will enable us to...

Two Matterport Cameras: Pro2 3D and Pro DanSmigrod 7 1 yearMetroplex360 (8056): @Wanderfish360 If you can afford it, do it. The quality of the Pro2 is a joy. Also, consider that you may not want to miss out on the first production run!
