Why this real estate agent bought a Matterport Camera (and sold it) DanSmigrod 1 5 daysDanSmigrod (25385): Hi All, I invited a real estate agent to be my guest on WGAN-TV Live at 5 to share their Matterport journey. The real estate agent bought a Matterport Pro2 3D Camera in 2016 and sold the Matterport Pro2 3D Camera - and exited the real estate photography business - this year (2021). While the real estate agent declined to be a guest on WGAN-TV Live at 5 to discuss their Matterport journey, the real estate agent did send me a detailed...
Project for scanning a Castle JaviMorales 7 16 daysJaviMorales (4): Thank everyone for your answers!! Regarding the linking images is exactly what i though, I need to see the ones suggested by and decide which one suits better my budget and needs. That's what I need to confirm with them on the pitch, deppending on the amount of outdoors space I will see, however i picture it more practical to do it linking the images to the indoor tours. Thanks for the offering, I will take it into account, are you...
Question of the Day: How important is Matterport Pro2 Capture via Android? DanSmigrod 4 16 daysAxis360Media (305): To be honest I am surprised (and disappointed) they wasted resources on Android when they could have first perfected the release (and BETA TESTING) PROCESS for Apple iOS. For me this is like baking cupcakes , having them flop constantly and then attempting wedding cake.
Got tips for Matterport Scanning of an empty vessel hull for an .obj ...? sese 4 17 daysEaglePrecision (155): It is possible to do a 3D exterior scan of the hull using photogrammetry (a set of overlapped images that are stitched together in 3D software such as Agisoft Metashape or DroneDeploy). The exterior 3D model can then be linked to the interior 360 tour using annotations in Sketchfab.
URGENT: I get broken diagonal lines win my scans MolinaPhoto 5 26 daysDanSmigrod (25385): Excellent solutions! I would add to that, if you need to order floor plans from Matterport, duplicate the model that includes Ricoh Theta Z1 "scans" and then delete the Ricoh Theta Z1 shot "scans" (because Matterport will not create floor plans that include 360s shot with a 360 1-click camera.

Matterport vs InsideMaps vs PilotTours Plus momenzo video Wingman 13 1 monthWingman (1959): Thanks Dan. I should have posted here that I contacted support with my some of my questions and got their reply. I can see some improvement so I will hold on my Iphone 12 Pro for a while. We heed to mention that InsideMaps does not charge anything for an account if you buy Hero so it all tours done under it are free for me. I do not remember if you need to do tours with Iphone 12 Pro to get this offer. As for variations shown it seems to be...
Question of the Day>Scan with the Pro2 Handle Always Facing Same Direction? DanSmigrod 9 1 monthcgraft (111): like @HarlanHambright said, the initial handle positioning is crucial to having a neat & professional model. I always take extra care that the handle faces to the front of the space scanned at a 90-degree angle to the front entry door. When scanning it's just good practice to always begin with your handle in the same starting position.
Anyone else experiencing Real Estate slow down? Shawn_P 13 1 monthimmersivespaces (1202): South Florida is booming, but the issue we have here is lack of inventory. Many agents sell homes before they can even get them listed in the MLS or get any imaging done. (We had a house sell while we were on property doing a capture.) We simply redirected our services to focus on the new home buyer, offering Matterport for insurance documentation and interior design services. Even with the low number of listing shoots, we've pretty much...

What would you charge for Matterport - 25kSF commercial space? sdubose99 10 2 monthscgraft (111): Also realize that although the Ricoh cameras capture scans faster than a Pro 2 does, you have to run and hide somewhere out of the shot every time with the Ricoh. You'll be getting quite the workout scanning a large open space with that device, VS just stepping behind the Pro 2 while it spins. So wear your apple watch for the workout points! and charge accordingly. Nice work finding a big job.
BLK360 + Matterport Pro2 = 1080 scans (and crashing): Now what (please)? Harrycayman 9 2 monthsHarrycayman (248): Hi Dan i will look at new ipad with more memory as i have the BLK app on that too. Also Gerhard that's good to know Harry
High Density XYZ file to creat a game , is blk 360 good for this project? alirizacil 4 2 monthsWingman (1959): If you want to do it with Matterport you can only use a LiDAR camera that is supported by Matterport and it is BLK360. There may be some other cameras but I only hear people referring to Leica BLK360. As much as I read about it on forums related to LiDAR scanning it is not the best choice in LiDAR scanning world, Not sure(do not remember) if it's related to density but considering there are LiDARs that can see 100 and 300m probably it is an...
Long term HarlanHambright 5 3 monthsDanSmigrod (25385): @Wingman Yes. Thanks for sharing that. @HarlanHambright You may want to duplicate the space before transferring. However, spaces cannot be transferred OUT of a Free or Starter account. This is to prevent abuse by users uploading to a Free account and transferring out to avoid processing fees. If a Schematic Floor Plan or Matterpak Bundle was purchased for the space, those will need to be downloaded and sent to the new host separately ...
Transcript: WGAN-TV Top 10 Matterport Pro1, Pro2 & Pro2 Lite Camera Repairs DanSmigrod 3 3 monthsDanSmigrod (25385): @MatterFix Founder Mike Vorce A viewer writes: Very Informative.

Matterport : Sensor Fault ChuckJ 8 3 monthsalirizacil (156): Hi Since i am in Turkey, and having 3 Pr2 camera, i had to solve my problems myself.

Must Have's for Every Job? DigitalTwin 9 3 monthsPickChuck (401): @DigitalTwin I know that you already have a Pro 2. I have to second what @trueview360s is saying. I shoot with a Ricoh Z1 and get good results. It might not be a bad idea to have one as a backup or supplemental camera. My best friend has a Pro 2 and a Z1. He has mastered the Dual Fisheye technique on the Rioch as well as the in camera HDR technique of the Z1 (I taught all he knows :) and I have been absolutely amazed at what he is getting. It...
Problem With High Resolution 2D Snapshots TheRealtor 14 3 monthstoddwaddington (517): Thanks, @DanSmigrod. I'm a MAC guy and it looks like this is a Windows recommendation but there are apps that might accomplish the same on MAC OS. But the idea of using full screen capture is an interesting one. I have a 27" 5K iMac. I just tried a full screen capture of one of my scans. Ended up being 13mb, larger than what MP exports. The quality of the image still doesn't match my standard high res images, but it is interesting to...

My first Gallery tour - Comments and feedback welcome! rodrigocastillo 3 4 monthsron0987 (1787): I agree @ftosolini but would also add as you get use to the MP camera that when you set the camera up, don't position as close as you did on the large painting. Other than that I think it looks good.
Why I carry a Z1 along with my MP Pro camera Home3D 8 5 monthsahagert (106): @Home3D helpful, thank you very much!
BLK360 with Theta Z1? Kumar 8 5 monthsHomePlanNZ (224): (Again in our experience), using the Z1 on a project will always degrade the 3D data compared to Pro2 and BLK. The Cortex process 'makes up' a 3D model based on imagery, which will always be inferior to laser (BLK) or infrared (Pro2) sensor data. If you then combine Z1+BLK, you are mixing bad with good = bad result. Issues were alignment both ways (Z1 scan, switch the BLK; BLK scan, switch to Z1). When changing devices we typically do about...

Saving Duplicates>Can I upload it & still keep the numbered scan positions? Shawn_P 2 5 monthsCharlesHH (412): You don’t need a duplicate now. If you need to go back, you can make a duplicate then and add your scan. You could just open the original but if something goes wrong you have a problem. Back up your iPad too as standard.
Should I buy Matterport Pro 2 camera? TakingArt 7 6 monthsDanSmigrod (25385): WGAN 3rd Party Service Providers - such as MP2FP @MP2FP) – can provide floor plans from Matterport tours: regardless of which camera was used to create the Matterport tour. Dan
Is a new Matterport camera coming in 2021? dave3d 12 6 monthsbriangreul (611): @DanSmigrod I think the camera is a price point product, not a margin product. I think they picked a price that people can stomach. The challenge is all the negative noise being created by the broker out of California coupled with the stark reality about not letting anyone new into MSS/MSP. The argument about not enough volume only holds a little water as most of the established MSP's are subbing the work out to photographers. In effect...

What other Virtual Tour platforms are compatible with Matterport cameras? HunsletRiviera 7 6 monthsWingman (1959): You can use Matterport to capture a tour and then build a custom tour from Matterport scans using 3DVista or Pano2VR. You either need to use the service that Dan recommends extracting panos from a Matterport tour or submit Matterport tour to Google Maps and then get it from their in Pano2VR and build any custom tour you want. There is a difference though in resolution. With the service recommended by Dan you will get full resolution panoramas...

Anyone know if Matterport can correct this? Shawn_P 9 6 monthsimagine3d (37): That suggestion is possible but no guarantee and a lot of extra work especially if plus if you have a 4000-6000 sq ft home to scan. You will have to preview each scan to make sure the scans are not giving this issue. It'll take forever to finish the home. In my point of view, this issue is the responsibility of MP to fix. For an expensive camera such as the Matterport Pro, we should not have to deal with issues like this. Professionally we...

Camera lens to use for real estate photography GETMYVR Jump to first page38Jump to last page 7 monthsPickChuck (401): I agree with @GETMYVR. It's camera specific. The thing I keep trying to bring home is that anything wider than 21mm full frame or 14'ish APSC makes the rooms look exaggerated. That being said shooting a bit wider in the bathrooms and closets (which I don't do unless they are magical) is ok. If I were going to choose one prime lens I would choose a 21mm FF / 14 mm APSC. If I were going for a zoom, I would choose 17-40 FF / 8-12 or...

Do you charge less for shooting Matterport with a Ricoh Theta Z1 than Pro2? DanSmigrod 10 8 monthsVTLV (2405): I can wrap my head around charging less For another use. If you have a classic plan, you’re putting up to $39 for upload using dual fisheye lens. Your monthly plans still need to help with costs to fund your tour slot plus other slots not currently being used. You use a pro 1 or 2, you’re out a few hours of shooting time. It’s right there with charge more for pro2 vs pro1 price comparison a couple years ago. Fund the plan, compete with...
Question of the Day>Pro2 to scan 5,000 SQ FT an hour of construction site? DanSmigrod 7 8 monthsDanSmigrod (25385): @Oboldyrev @lilnitsch @briangreul Thanks for sharing. Seems like while it may be possible to scan an open commercial space at the rate of 5,000 SQ FT in an hour, I wonder if this is the exception rather than the norm: particularly for the space that Matterport shows when they make the claim of 5,000 SQ FT an hour. I wish Matterport would provide a real-time video of 5,000 SQ FT shot in an hour using a Pro2 so that we can see the...
Matterport Scan of one house with three floors and no stairs to connect Ramojakubovic 10 8 monthsron0987 (1787): The other thing to consider if like @lilnitsch says if you get the right time do the entire stairs on all three floors so there is no major lighting difference. But remember to open the doors on each level. You will find the end product color balance is better. Just a suggestion.

How do you export full size (12866 x 6433) 360 images from Matterport Pro2? wolfind 10 10 monthsWingman (1959): There can be an easy walk around to avoid hosting your tours with Matterport. It won't give you full resolution 360s, only 32MP ones and you won't be able to do it for private properties. However for anything else, you can do scans with Matterport, then publish your tour to GSV, grab it from there with Pano2VR Pro(I am sure 3DVista can do it too) and then you have a completely ready tour made up to real scale and with every 360 linked to build...

Buy Theta Z1 or Matterport Pro 2? wvirtualhomes 19 11 monthsJonJ (1745): I have wrestled with this same question for some time since I have been using the Pro 1 since 2014. Long story short, I decided to go with the Theta Z1 instead of upgrading to the Pro 2. The reasons for this are below. 1) I did not want to further invest into the Matterport ecosystem as there have been many decisions made that I do not agree with. 2) While the quality of the Pro 2 imagery is superior to the Theta Z1, I do not believe that...

Can Matterport camera be used for anything else? itsrichphoto 12 1 yearleonherbert (901): @JuMP This makes absolutely no sense. I have been a Matterport user for quite a few years and understand the ecosystem. I am not sure what you are trying to sell. With Matterport you can archive unlimited number of virtual tours if you are on the new plan. What prey tekk is this third party program that can make these tours come back to life?

Opinion of the Ipad (7th generation) and Matterport Pro 2? wvirtualhomes 5 1 yearMeshImages (1355): @wvirtualhomes Yes, the ipad is the brain of your camera.

I have one client that gave me 150 homes last year, and he's on track to double that this year with his expanded team. The deal I have with him, and him only, is that that I don't bill by sq ft, I bill by number of scans. I have a flat rate for any homes up to 99 scans.

Matterport cameras compared: Ricoh Theta V & Z1, Insta360 ONE X, Pro2, Pro1 Jwbuckl 4 2 yearsChangesin3d (124): The interesting part of this is the Closed System "business opportunity" to an open system with other peoples hardware. Matterport sells a amera and sells a business opportunity with an expensive camera and then allows others to have almost the same presentation at a fraction of the cost. At least to my eyes the Z1 is equal to the Pro Cameras. Put this on a mobile devise and the comparisons get even closer. Most consumers for...

First Post - 360 Newbie - Need Advice Theta Z1 and Matterport zacharysmiller 5 2 yearsJwbuckl (337): The 360 cameras do not have the accurate depth sensing that the Matterport cameras do. So a floorplan would only be within 4-10% accuracy which is why they are not offered with the 360s. The Matterport Pro cameras are within 1% accuracy and the Leica BLK360 is within .1%.
Same Space: Ricoh Theta Z1 versus Matterport Pro2 3D Camera (You Decide!) HarlanHambright 7 2 yearsShakoure (313): Zooming via both the MP player and browser definitely reveals that MP Pro produces finer details. But I agree the coloring from the Z1 seems more vivid. Not bad Z1.

Are the quality of pro1 tours getting worse? JCHAFE 11 3 yearsjasondavidpage (199): In the first example you provided, those "beams" seem to remind me of when your cell phone lens has been cleaned but there are oils still on the lens. You may need to get a qtip with and alcohol pad or lens cleaning pad and do a thorough cleaning of the protective glass in front of it. On another note, I too have the first version and feel like the processing is getting worse for most scans that I do.

The Best Benefits of the Pro2 Property3dNZ 15 3 yearsDavidHothersall (55): No effect on the quality of the imagery (apart from the Beta issues with the occasional 'black square') I meant the increase in scanning speed is noticeable and it is possible to move through the scan process much quicker which is a benefit if as I suggested you need to progress quicker because of lighting conditions or just time constraints etc.

Our first paid tour fotoguy 9 4 yearsfotoguy (732): @tocha, I found on my Iphone that I did get stuck in the hallway but on my laptop I don't. Not sure why that is unless it's a sizing issue. I will look into doing the mesh to fix the problem.
Why won't Matterport take my money??! Queen_City_3D 11 4 yearsQueen_City_3D (2773): @GlennTremain That would be nice. They did just now finally send me an invoice and so after a month and half I do have some actual confirmation that they have my order. And as suspected there must not have been anything up until now as this invoice is dated for today. To make matters worse, they have it for full price and have not applied the $500 "customerloyalty" discount. I've obviously asked for that to be revised as I've got...
Matterport Camera Multi-camera mode??? lucadeal 15 4 yearsMetroplex360 (9377): @mori Content belongs to the photographer. Showcase and Processing belongs to Matterport. Matterport allows export of 360 Snapshots (4096 x 2048), HD Snapshots, OBJ Files, Point Clouds and Google Street View (Which you can extract and rebuild panos from - therefore, I'm not sure how they will police/monitor that). Matterport can be downloaded to the Matterport Showcase App for offline use. What more do you need concerning copyrights? If you...

We've come a long way baby HarlanHambright 13 4 yearsAndrewWilliam23 (64): @HarlanHambright Your current new Pro2 camera scan is superb! Your more seasoned skills and knowledge as a Matterport photographer plus the help of the new Pro2 camera really shows off where you're at now. Fantastic work Harlan! My Pro2 will be here by the end of this month or first few weeks in August....can't wait. You've inspired me!
Matterport Pro2 vs Matterport Pro1 3D Camera HarlanHambright 3 4 yearsmori (779): I asked the MP support about the 360 panor download pixel dimensions for the Pro2 which was advertised with 134 Megapixel. What I can download is 4096 x 2048 (= 8.39 Megapixels). Not comparable of course, but my 150 Eur Insta360air can capture 3008 x 1504 (Megapixels = 4.52 Megapixels). What I suggested to get is: Size = 16400 x 8200 = 134480000 pixels Megapixels = 134 Megapixels Aspect ratio = 2.00 Will make an extensive test...

Matterport Pro2 not aligning Jamie 3 4 yearsTrustedPhotoDC (1108): My thought is that the IR is more sensitive in Pro2 and scans that Pro1 has no issues with, the Pro2 could struggle. One space done last week had a a wall not align, but processing did not show any artifacts, and there was no issue with the processed result.
How much to get started as a Matterport Pro? DanSmigrod 6 4 yearsDanSmigrod (25385): Hi All, If you are planning to buy a Matterport Pro2 3D Camera, have you calculated the cost of all the essential gear and accessories that you will need to buy?

Outsourcing to MSPs w/ Pro1 vs Pro2 Queen_City_3D 7 4 yearsnat_vanveen (598): @Queen_City_3D Should your original question not also include vetting the ability of the MSP to take good photos LOL... and not just whether they have the latest camera version... won't matter how good the image quality is if the person behind the camera isn't any good at it... ;) Also, have you considered, you may not be able to find an MSP with the latest camera in the location you need???

Dropping like a Rock? More like a Meteor! hometakes 12 4 yearsNamecomingsoon (13): @Gerhard agreed. I'm thrilled with the product, the customer experience just leaves a lot to be desired. I just feel like a dummy because like you said- the writing WAS on the wall. Live and learn.

Matterport Pro2 Camera, day 2 Results HarlanHambright 6 4 yearsHarlanHambright (1904): old system would have been way over an hour. i just extracted a still from yesterday's scan for a view i missed the client wanted. it may be a viable substitute. haven't put it thru the paces yet. there's potential. i'm down with the speed, worth it.

Buying a Used Matterport Camera? Pros/Cons DanSmigrod 1 4 yearsDanSmigrod (25385): Hi All, This post was was inspired this related Forum discussion. Now that the Matterport Pro2 3D Camera has started shipping, it's likely we will see a flood of used Matterport Pro1 3D Cameras for sale on eBay: especially for those not eligible for a trade-in for the Pro2.

$500 Off Pro2 Until 6/30/17 for Pro1 Pros DanSmigrod 2 4 yearsDanSmigrod (25385): Note from @Dan Smigrod The App Store shows the new version number 2.3.2 - but shows the app last updated on 16 June 2017. This says to me - WAIT WAIT WAIT until the Update on the App says 21 June 2017. I could imagine that the app has not fully populated the Apple App Store servers around the globe, even though the description has. Yikes!

Upgrade or not? What would you do? tocha 11 4 yearsQueen_City_3D (2773): We've also ordered the new camera and plan to keep our existing as a back up and to scan 2 different properties at same time if required by hiring some help. Ideally we want to use the PRO2 as much as possible to give clients the better imagery when we're able, but in a pinch we still think the PRO1 will be okay. @tocha If you plan to continue down this path I'd say order the PRO2, and as you aren't currently doing enough to warrant having to...

Why GPS on the Matterport Pro2 3D Camera? leonvanzweel 10 4 yearsMetroplex360 (9377): @Property3DNZ - Nothing has changed. GPS is not being used for automatic location information -yet-. @leonvanzweel - Nothing has changed. GPS is not being used for 360 Views yet. One thing that GPS can do is establish true north, and I would guess this is going to be used for GSV for aligning the tour with the map.

Preparing Matterport for IPO or Acquisition DanSmigrod 8 4 yearsVTLV (2405): @DanSmigrod - You hit the nail on the head of where was Matterport is at and where have they come since the beginning. In there, I think the CEO is having issues moving inventory as they try to create better quality and hang onto his job with investors waiting for a return at years 3-5 on their investment. Most right offs happen in the first five years before failing or hiding growth into costs of doing business. It's obvious, that our hosting...

Google Street View Will "Count" Towards Scan DanSmigrod 6 4 yearsDanSmigrod (25385): If Matterport does not offer 1-click to export all 360ºs, perhaps one of the 3rd party developers can offer this service. Dan
Dear Matterport, About your new camera... StevenHattan 16 4 yearstomasdunbar (88): I have my camera 8 months. I love the camera but this latest development is going to hurt. I will not be able to afford the new camera and it is a huge slap in the face. The price is significantly less for someone else to enter my market than what I originally paid and they will now have a better camera than me. Matterport have lost my respect
Pro2's push into 2D pictures LewisBishop 11 4 yearsMetroplex360 (9377): @Chadcloses In the future, you will not need to specify the snapshot quality -- it will be an option at the point of download. This will fix a lot of headaches for everyone. The photos you are seeing about are shot at 80% zoom -- good catch there. I shoot all of my snapshots at 80% zoom because in my opinion, they look more like a wide angle photograph.
I'm apparently STILL stupid! StevenHattan 29 4 yearsHelen (763): I wonder what will happen 8 months from now when a Pro1 camera breaks down? Will there still be the service some people have been getting where they send you out a camera while yours is getting fixed. Or will it be sorry we no longer service that model!
Is the Pro2 a Competitive Advantage? DanSmigrod 8 4 yearsjustinv (1043): My prices are going to stay the same with my old camera. I hope everyone in my market upgrades and raises their prices. For the most part, Realtors are cheap here and everywhere else.
Matterport Pro2 Early Bird Increased to $500 DanSmigrod 13 4 years3SixtyNow (450): I received an email today about the updated program to "better support our newest customers" but the trade in value for my camera hasn't changed. So, how is that "better support"?

The Matterport 3D Pro2 Camera is a Joy! Metroplex360 23 4 years3dinsights (40): The transfer speed on the Pro2 at 5Ghz is 2 - 3 times faster than the older 2.4ghz wifi protocol. So if the Pro2 is transferring more data its probably not noticeable as its moving from camera to iPad at a much quicker rate.
Video: Matterport Slams Pro Photographers DanSmigrod 19 4 yearsMetroplex360 (9377): @DanSmigrod Without any reservation, I will say that it provides a very viable option for a Realtor with a lot of free time who was previously shooting photos with his/her iPhone. I appreciate Bill Brown's statement that it 'can act as a replacement' and fully support that statement. It infers that the Pro1 was never really an option due to the quality just NOT being good enough for them to promote it as such. In the end, I think it all...
Matterport Pro2 GPS: Why this Matters DanSmigrod 3 4 yearsDanSmigrod (25385): Hi All, Imagine that you shoot Matterport: scans indoors and 360º photo spheres outdoors. Today, it is ckludgy to "walk" indoors/outdoors as easily as you do "walking" within scans only. While the 360º photos are discoverable in highlights reel, it's awkward. Now image that since GPS enables Matterport to know exactly where the 360ºs are located, I imagine that in a TBD back-end release, Matterport will enable us to...

Pre order new Matterport Pro2 Camera? DannyBasting Jump to first page73Jump to last page 4 yearsDannyBasting (1171): @Queen_City_3D you can use just one account. It doesn't matter what camera you are using, you just need to be logged in to the account where you want the model to be hosted when you upload it. Unless you want to work with a sepparate account for a big client that wants to cover his own monthly fee and conversion costs, I don't realy see the benefit in getting multiple accounts.
