Realcomm Digie Awards Recognizes GeoCV as Leading Tech Innovator Jonathan_GeoCV 2 5 hoursGarySnyder (1384): Watching the video I can vision that this is a real threat to MP and MSP's should take notice of this up and coming company. I'm sure that any shortcomings which exist currently with their offering will be soon be added to their solution and with the qualification of their development team they may even surpass MP's current offerings. This company has been around for some time and I was impressed by their immersive...

NAR Study: Value of Virtual Tours and Floor Plans among Home Buyers DanSmigrod 7 2 daysHome3D (64): For MSPs who are not professional photographers (not skilled in shooting RAW, Lightroom, Photoshop...) stills pulled from MP are a great option. I'd also propose that for very low budget properties, shooting MP and delivering its stills for MLS use are an upgrade over just mid-quality stills, without MP. That being said, MP stills do not compare with a skilled photographer's work with a DLSR. Maybe someday but not today. But I'm encouraging...

Houses Selling Too Fast? fotoguy 7 4 days3dvirtualview (103): @fotoguy I have found more interest from businesses and SEO then a single real estate agent. People tell me agents need to invest and do it for the client and not themselves. However al the agents I have spoke to want the Drone more than the MP.. frustrating honestly. I am working on a campaign to promote to businesses as my customers are loving it and the hits on the photos.

Matterport Support Live Webinar for Q&A DanSmigrod 2 5 daysfotoguy (121): I liked parts of the video but none seemed centered on us, the MP Professionl. The one that came closest state at the end "contact Matterport for a quote". I would love a generic video aimed at us MP Professionls. Am I missing something?
Matterport Charge per square foot lmrich73120 6 5 daysVTLV (1114): I wouldn't bank on those numbers. Middle Man companies outsourcing to Matterport pros might get away with that pricing because their marketing budget has been pumped up and beating you out of your own market. Many of us try to make $0.10 a square foot. If there's multiple cameras around you, expect your competition to drop to as low as $0.03 a square foot just to beat you out. Photography services have been taking off the past few years...

Question of the Day: which drone do you recommend for a newbie? DanSmigrod 2 6 dayseggardner (364): We use the Phantom 4 Pro in our business because it has all around collision sensors which make it almost impossible to crash into objects. Obviously it depends on budget too as the P4P is on the higher end of the price scale compared to say a Mavic which is also by DJI
Celebratory promotion ideas? Queen_City_3D 1 6 daysQueen_City_3D (1804): Nearing 1 MIL impression! Note: It sucks that Matterport forced us to delete ~200 models with the %!*$#! model hosting limits or I'd be a lot closer to the million views already. I was thinking as my statistics marker nears that Million view milestone that it might be an excuse to run a promotion to build some more business but I haven't clearly thought out the...

Manfrotto 3 Way Tilt Head In Tour MarkCantu 11 7 daysMarkCantu (79): Thank you every one for your advice and suggestions. I bought an additional tripod, Pro Master Professional Tripod Series with a Ball Head. Luckily, I have an independent Camera Shop right by my house. The associate took the time to explain how to use it with my Matterport Camera. My Manfrotto Tripod is heavy weight, which is a good thing and a bad thing. I am taking both tripods to my next project, and will look into the Gemtune DY-60N.

5 Floors scanned, only 4 floors result... angusnorriss 3 8 dayssbl110 (136): I had this happen with a home that had 4 floors (lower, main, upper level and an observatory). The first pass missed the observatory, however, I could reach it with stairs. I went back to fix a rookie mistake in a bathroom, and when I re-processed, the observatory magically appeared. I don't recall if the floor selector was missing the observatory, but it was definitely missing from the dollhouse view. Other posts have suggested to...
