Rolled the matterport shot to shot

Thank you thank you to the OP who suggested this

Today's 2600 sq ft house was 90 minutes.

Is there a certain size/type of dolly that you guys recommend? Asking b/c I can envision having to deal with factors like added height of the dolly, wide stance, etc. But I just did a 4,400 sqft vacant home and would have loved the assistance of a dolly!

Sounds like a good idea, especially for single storey homes

Totally don't understand this. How is a dolly faster than picking up the tripod and moving it?

2600 sf should be done in under an hour...or just at an hour if there aren't a lot of mirrors.

@Metroplex360 I'm with you. How can it be faster.

@Metroplex360 I agree, especially in tight spaces and stairs I cant see it being helpful at all. It would be something extra to have to carry around.

I love using a dolly. Granted I mainly do commercial scans on average 10000sq ft/1000 sqm. Just push and move. I'm a big fella, but lifting and moving a camera 200-300 times can give you a pain in the biceps. You also very seldom have to re-level the camera. I highly recommend a dolly with big wheels.
