Camera height for tall warehouse465

GlennAronwits private msg quote post Address this user
Shooting a tall warehouse with cars what would be an optimal height for the camera? The ceiling is approx. 25-30 feet tall.

I really doubt you will get any meshing for the ceiling. But you will see the "photo"

Meaning your wall may seem cut off in the dollhouse view.
But I could be wrong.

I am interested in what those with experience have to say.

i think you should stick to a normal human length, otherwise it would go out of proportion.

Slightly higher may help get around some of the cars and make scanning easier. I wouldn't go much over a tall person's view (6'-6'6"

I agree with RealEstateReadines. I suspect you'd want to be taller than the tallest vehicle so that the top of the cars would show up in a floorplan view. I'd be more concerned with that than the walls which should appear in the distance and I suspect would look just fine.

It's rarely a good idea to go much higher than 6' because if you're too high, you can't easily navigate from one circle to the next without constantly looking at your feet. Not a huge deal if you use the arrows to navigate but I think the majority of people click the circles to navigate.

Even in tall spaces I keep the camera between 5' and 5'6".

Plus, real estate/architectural photography is almost always lower than what people think.

you guys have to realize that these cameras are a depth sensor before they are a camera. So they need to "sense" a depth to do a proper reconstruction. Too far away from the floor and to the camera it's like it's floating - without a point of reference.
