Video: Cameras and Lenses for Real Estate Photography DanSmigrod 2 5 daysExpertise (625): I really think most of us do this wrong. You should research the lens you want to work with FIRST then pick the body. And we really should focus more on practical qualities over esoteric specs. For a lens I think you need low distortion on the edges, high resistance to lens flare and great auto-focus. That's it.

Ipad air 2020 vs ipad pro ? geemaps 6 30 daysdndavis (40): @geemaps Multi-threaded apps can divide their processes between multiple CPUs (which includes multi-core CPUs and virtual CPUs) and run those processes in parallel. This can increase performance, as well as lower costs by allowing processes to share physical resources. It is extremely difficult to code, however. Some tasks benefit little if at all from multi-threading, no matter how well coded. Problems with such things as concurrency and error...

Video: Quick Release Mount for Ricoh Theta Z1 (and other 360 Camerass) DanSmigrod 2 2 monthslilnitsch (2573): I like the idea in theory however, I rarely have the need to swap 360 cameras on the fly and this blocks the charging port should the shooter need shore power while shooting
Free Shipping on Three Hard Cases for Matterport Pro2 3D Camera DanSmigrod 5 2 monthsDanSmigrod (24301): @Matt19 The Maestro is likely too big for most. It is HEAVY and BIG, but it does have ALL my gear - except the tripod - (and is very impressive when you show up for a shoot). And, I don't recommend designing a case to include a tripod. Get a tripod bag. You might gather all your stuff and design a case that is unique to you and your stuff. Best, Dan
Laptop: how much power to be able to do photo editing, virtual tours, and.. Floridaboy 24 2 monthsFloridaboy (13): I would politely point out that originally the post was about "how much power would I need to be able to do photo editing, virtual tours, and anything else necessary", which dovetails into someone starting a new business. But that's the beauty of forums. As responses come in, new questions arise. I'm in a course right now, and thinking of taking Ben's course, possibly Eli's. But maybe I didn't clarify my situation enough. I also do...

It was my first still camera with a digital viewfinder and on this issue, I will NEVER go back to an optical one. The usefulness of focus peaking and zebra improve accuracy and accelerate my shooting dramatically. Many of my clients hire me to shoot HDR stills, a 3D or 360° virtual tour, AND a production video all in a single visit. I arrive with six different cameras. Add...

Photographer dipping my toes into 3D/360. Am I on the right track? condra 12 4 monthsGETMYVR (676): I would suggest use the iPhone for making phone calls, texts, taking selfies, but if you're looking to do matterport, you want to use the best camera possible to get the best results. Theta Z1 at the minimum. I tried an iPhone and an iPad on a sample matterport tour, and at the same time I connected a Z1 and I also did a portion of the house with a pro 2 3D to see how they work together. Worst tour ever produced.
What is the best camera/system for producing a 360 tour of a college campus HunsletRiviera 1 4 monthsHunsletRiviera (7): Hello WGAN I'm looking for some advice, I am the proud owner and operator of a Matterport Pro 2, and have recently received an enquiry about creating a virtual tour of a college campus here in the UK. The campus is rather large, sparse grounds with many different faculty buildings. I know that Matterport struggles to cope over a certain amount of scans, and I 100% believe that this campus is too large for Matterport to handle in a single...

Yes it starts to overheat just keep a cooler handy or umbrella. It will handle the cold also, just confirm with your Leica agent in your area and ask them for sale data or examples they can supply you. Work flow might be a little longer but the end results and data is worth it. It also gives you much wider coverage than Matterport so you can do less scans and move further between points,...

New! $300 RICOH Theta SC2 for Business 360 HDR Camera with Special Timer DanSmigrod 5 1 yearPeter360 (23): The (not released) but planned latest matterport app beta has listed a: "Split" mode for 360° cameras There is an existing plug-in for the z1 (and v?) which allows one then other lens shooting with 5s delay so I think they have integrated in firmware of SC business and should (?) therefore filter down to z1 in next (not in current 6 feb update) firmware update).

Question of the Day>Matterport on Construction Site: Must have Safety Gear? DanSmigrod 3 1 yearWonderdawg (331): I would add thin gloves for a good grip, a rocket dust blower for your lenses and some kind of “booties” for your tripod feet. Gaffers tape will work so it doesn’t pick up dirt or grime (which shows up on the nice carpet on the next shoot!) I also have a small reflector to hold over the Matterport at an angle to shield the sun when necessary. Happy shooting and keep those prices up.

Need advice about the purchase of a DSLR or Mirrorless camera. Mungo 5 1 yearJonJ (1745): Hi @Mungo, If you are looking for a budget setup, I would recommend a Canon T6 paired with the Canon 10-18mm f4.5/5.6. This is a great starting place that will not break the bank. If you are able to spend a little more money, or if you can find a used camera, I would recommend stepping up to either a Canon 70D or 80D. These cameras have much higher resolution and have the additional feature of being able to bracket up to 9 images without the...

My First GeoCV Experience Convrts 19 2 yearsMikhailBombin (21): I'd like to mention that the map you see on the device is not final, it only represents the basic alignment of panoramas one by one, and no actual alignment of the ones from different parts of the scan. But of course it's done during further processing, so in 100% cases final model would look better and more aligned then the one you see on the phone. Of course it doesn't mean you don't need to check it time to time, not to miss some serious...

Matterport Piece of Gear of the Week: Tripod Dolly DanSmigrod 2 2 yearsleonherbert (901): Absolutely, When you are using a new iPad Pro you would be wasting time, lifting and placing the tripod all the time.

While 1 ipad cannot connect to 2 cameras simultaneously I don't see why 2 ipads wouldn't be able to connect to single camera at the same time. Not sure of any added benefit here but might be fun to do a little experimenting :-)

Bags & Cases for Matterport Camera Wyzlo 10 5 yearsMaria (106): We use a Nanuk 925 case with shoulder strap for the Matterport and charger. We use a Manfrotto MBAG70N tripod bag for the tripod and door stops and use any case, bag, backpack or just carry the iPad. This allows us to easily fit this in our car and less weight. I don't see a need to have a water tight hard case for the tripod or door stops. I use he iPad for more than just Matterport so I don't keep it in the case, although I probably could...

Full Camera or wait for Project Tango BDPelton 7 5 yearsron0987 (1676): I agree with Gary and bamir, I have been following Project Tango for a couple of years. When I first bought my Matterport camera, I spoke with their sales team and the thought process at that time was to develop something that could be made and used on a phone, but still produce a end product similar to what they have now. I foresee that coming but even as fast as technology is developing I don't see anything in the near future similar to or...

What are you using to carry your scanner in? ccctucker 29 5 years[redacted] (16): Hello Everyone, Being a Matterport Owner and doing the search for a custom case, I organically ended up with a Pelican case. I have been custom developing with Pelican two cases to house the Matterport Camera and accessories. After a few months in Beta the cases are complete and I put them up for Pre-order as of today. You can check out the Facebook page: clickable text We use these cases with our company and it has provided a successful...
2016 will be an explosive VR year davidpylyp 3 5 yearsjessetutt (67): I agree VR is gaining a lot of traction. There are also many more Matterport providers (more than ever before) which is great...and also challenging as this dilutes revenue for existing providers. The main challenges for VR is the lack of access to the VR devices and secondly the fact that almost half of the people I tested the solution with felt nauseous. Regarding Matterport, I wonder if they will release a new device to resolve the...
Is the Matterport GearVR app only monoscopic 3Dmatters 10 5 years3Dmatters (1): Hi All, (Dan asked if I could replace the image with a family friendly one) so here's the original image It does not benefit from the slight touch-up that the previous finished image had, so there might be a stereo anomaly when looking toward the Apartment's main door.
Camera Recommendation seanminor 14 5 yearsseanminor (40): Sorry guys, I've been out of pocket the last week but my wife decided to go with the D3300 from Costco, and she is loving it. Thanks to all for your recommendations. Hope that everyone has a safe and awesome Christmas. Here's to an increasingly bigger awareness in 2016 of the power we offer with the Matterport platform. I already have jobs lined up for the first week in January. In my area, Houston, this will be a tough year for real estate...

Before using MirrorOp, I tried with Reflector 2 which supports both AirPlay and Google Cast, but the image froze after a few seconds, like it has been reported by others using ChromeCast. My setup is a Gear VR + Galaxy S6. Thanks!

Mac-14 doesn't fit Desmond DLEV-1 jimfelder 6 5 yearsDanSmigrod (24301): @jimfelder Please do not buy this item. The camera will make it hard to see the bubbles. The height of the tripod will also make it hard to see the bubbles. Stick with the items on my gear and accessories shopping list. The link is below the map.
Aerial Footage Invelop 30 5 yearstradetickers (10): They just want money. F the FAA. Who cares what the government wants to regulate. Their regulation only hurts the economy. Anything that deliberately hurts the economy is an enemy of the people. It's just another way to steal more money from a supposed free people. It's us against them, as there is no representation. We need another tea party.
Distortion? GusArb 7 5 yearsGarySnyder (1822): Thanks Dan @Queen_City_3D what Dan is referring to is the centre line of the camera during one of its rotation stops. Just look where the camera is pointing and you can easily get a feeling where the center line of the camera will fall and move the camera accordingly so the next stop to the right falls on the center the item you’re trying to capture. It’s also better if you can avoid it not to be so close to certain objects. Think of it...
Camera output and RAW data csnoke 8 5 yearsGarySnyder (1822): FYI, it's easy to get the data from the iPad the hard part is to decrypt it. It seemed that the Russians did just that but the last time I checked their site it was taken down and just the landing page was left.
MP Showcase + Samsung Gear VR CKC 7 5 yearsedirwin (34): I wasn't looking at a walk-through on a 3D M'port showcase. I was looking at a couple of sample VR presentations, one of the interior of a property that I don't believe was shot with a M'port camera and the other inside a stunning underground cave. Both were captivating and the stability depended only on the stability of your head as you move the goggles.
Getting Showcase ready for Gear VR headset Rik 7 5 yearsQueen_City_3D (2700): @kc1302 I agree that cardboard will be VR for the masses and I hope that Matterport VR Showcases will be available in that format. You can order google cardboard kits out of China for as little as $2.19 shipping included, which would make it affordable to buy several hundred to brand and hand out as promotional tools. Only effective though if the VR Showcases will work with Google Cardboard. That said, I've used some Google Cardboard apps...
iPad pro! Conor 2 5 yearsTosolini (3503): Are you thinking of ink annotations as an additional option to Mattertags? Even if they are temporary, just as a way to highlight objects in a particular view, that may add value to a presentation.
Matterport Tips and Tricks for a Newbie?? usruss 3 5 yearspixelray (608): Keep the scans closer vs further away. Take your time. Use your level to keep camera perfect. The goal should be to not have a scan that won't align. Read up on this site. It has helped tremendously. Oh and practice on your own house with several scans of it. Good luck!

None of which are really fitting for real estate, and honestly those samples kind of suck. I just got my beta version of the app with a model that we scanned and it turned out great. We're going to be doing demonstrations here in MN on Thursday and will see what kind of response we get. Currently the cost is $400, but I heard it'll be under $50 once they can get it...

Lowering tripod and its effects? EricThomas 4 6 yearsdfellars (52): This is a VERY early model we ran while testing the camera. This was pre-release and the showcase view was not yet available so we captured at multiple heights to try and create a more photo-realistic mesh view. Creating a better mesh view was not successful, but as you move through the kitchen you can see that we took sweeps at both a high and low position and it should give you an idea of the...
New Member Cindiewozniak 2 6 yearsJohnBecker (385): Cindie, other than turning on lights and/or closing blinds, you're pretty much at the mercy of the ambient light. The system handles it reasonably well, for the most part. As for mirrors, just try to mark them as early as you can. Even if they're not all the way visible in the scan, mark approximately where they are and then touch up the mark as the mirror's position is revealed more accurately in successive scans. The biggest obstacle I've...
