Ricoh Theta Z1 versus Matterport Pro2 3D Camera for Outdoor scans? Paulo 4 19 minutesWingman (1318): I cannot comment on using a Z1 with Matterport. I have just never seen any reason to do it since I have a Pro2. As for using it to capture a 360 I believe the further you are from objects the more chance you have to make a 360 without any stitching errors. It is better to stay at least 50cm away from any object and that distance applies to a Pro2 as well.

Cloud Pano homefinders3d 2 3 hoursVTLV (2067): I bought into the CloudPano Lifetime Service a few months back. I think the product is great for dropping in some 360 photos into an easy upload to have a fast slideshow of 360's. Spend a few more minutes on it to add some direction arrows, offer a live walk through or personalize with contact info is fast and easy. The platform appears almost too simple to use. Does that mean it's cheap and not worth the price per month? I think a lot of...
