Buy a Matterport Pro2 3D Camera between May 1 - Sept 30, 2019 and get free DanSmigrod 2 16 daysDanSmigrod (19133): Hi All, If you are thinking about buying a Matterport Pro2 3D Camera - or just bought one - reminder of this WGAN offer (above). Best, Dan
What's in your case. leonherbert 3 27 daysleonherbert (436): @DanSmigrod I have a theta V but I also have a backup Matterport from the company I am sub contracting too. It really sucks to see something you baby around crash to the ground. If anyone has wondered how the repair options work with Matterport here is a basic breakdown. Matterport charges a minimum amount of USD$400 to diagnose and estimate the full repair costs. The USD$400 is charged regardless of whether you decide to repair the camera or...
Video: Matterport+BLK360+Pro2-> MatterPak->Autodesk ReCap->Autodesk AutoCAD DanSmigrod 1 28 daysDanSmigrod (19133): 3D Data of the Picasso in Daley Plaza in Chicago | Video courtesy of Mark Carroll YouTube Channel (26 August 2019) Hi All, In this video (above), Matterport Sales Engineer (AEC) Mark Carroll did a Matterport scan of Chicago's Picasso in Daley Plaza, using: ✓ Matterport 3D Capture iOS App ✓ Leica BLK360 ✓ Matterport Pro2 3D Camera In the video: (above) ✓ Shows measurements in...
Transcript: Should I buy a Matterport Camera? If so, how to get Started? DanSmigrod 1 1 monthDanSmigrod (19133): WGAN-TV: Intro to Matterport for Professional Photographers with Matterport Representative Jonathan Buckley ( @Jwbuckl ) and Matterport Marketing Manager Amir Frank (Tuesday, 20 August 2019). Hi All, If you are a professional photographer thinking about adding Matterport 3D Tours to your service offering, you likely have a lot of questions about if and how to get started with Matterport. The following is a transcript of the WGAN-TV...
Question RE: Confirmation of whether its a Pro 1 or Pro 2 scan Queen_City_3D 16 1 monthinmerso3D (7): Congratulations for solving the problem. I also believe that pixel counting works best as evidence. The "zoom cliks" I think serves to have a quick idea of the type of camera as a visitor of the tour without being a user of the workshop. This topic was interesting. Regards!
Cleaning the lens on Matterport Pro2 3D Camera fotoguy 1 2 monthsfotoguy (297): Does anybody know can the Zeiss lens cleaning wipes be used to clean the lenses on the MP2 camera? If not, what do you recommend? Thanks.
Quality Comparison between Pro2 - Theta 1 & Insta360 kkc1006 5 2 monthsrzphotoman (1215): @kkc1006 Thanks for sharing. Pro 2, winner hands down.

(This free Membership offer is by WGAN.) Best, Dan
Matterport cameras compared: Ricoh Theta V & Z1, Insta360 ONE X, Pro2, Pro1 Jwbuckl 4 3 monthsChangesin3d (65): 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...
Question of the Day: Do you Provide Matterport Camera SnapShots to Clients? DanSmigrod 3 4 monthsrzphotoman (1215): @June, I use Aurora HDR 2019. It does a great job with single images as well as multi mage shots. I also use Photoshop CC occasionally.
Question of the Day: Matterport Camera at 4 feet to capture 3D Tour-Photos? DanSmigrod 6 4 monthsron0987 (1153): Nice these look really good.
Help with space re-scan ... ELAN42 1 4 monthsELAN42 (125): We did this recently: Due to sunlight and rain, the 3D model is bad in the main outdoor area. Id you look further, you will understand the problem is my umbrella above the camera (that was sometimes spotted by the camera itself and puddles that was reflecting sunlight creating "holes". Question is, is...
First Post - 360 Newbie - Need Advice Theta Z1 and Matterport zacharysmiller 5 4 monthsJwbuckl (289): 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 5 monthsShakoure (270): 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.
This MSP is Buying a Pro2 Camera Today: How I Answered His Questions DanSmigrod 4 5 monthsfoxwrth13 (46): As long as they keep allowing the overages on the classic plans I have no problem paying for the new plan in addition to the old one. Would have liked a few more collaborator accounts but ya can't have everything. I think what has MSPs the most worried is the uncertainty of whatever business model they are using will still be viable in the future.
Can You Create a Tour with a Combination of Pro1 and Pro2 Cameras? Chemistrydoc 2 5 monthsDanSmigrod (19133): Hi @ChemistryDoc While I have not done this, it WILL work fine. Dan
FYI to my fellow MP VR enthusiasts: WebVR RichardStanton 1 6 monthsRichardStanton (136): Just a heads up for any of you that have in the past or want to in the future incorporate VR into your workflow, I just finished testing the new WebVR release changes from Matterport last night and I am happy to say that the Oculus GO is once again usable for viewing your spaces via the WebVR integration! (performance was so poor previously that would stutter constantly when tracking head movement). This release also fixed some of the issues...
Matterport hosting/charging questions Thea_VR 5 7 monthsDanSmigrod (19133): @Wonderdawg Great advice. As a WGAN Standard Member, you get the free use of Panoskin Pro: a tool for removing excess arrows (sergeant). Plus, with the Panoskin Custom Builder, you can create a tour using the Google Street View version - annotated for a website. Best, Dan
VIDEO - How I Matterport - Solving Problems with Cortex Power Metroplex360 7 7 monthsMetroplex360 (9206): @izoneguy Yes, I'm using Capture 3 for all production work despite Matterport cautioning users to not use it in this manner. For me, it's perfectly stable on my iPad Pro 10.5" and iPhone XR. I absolutely love using the latest betas and always have. How can one beta test unless it counts? Being able to fill holes with Cortex rocks!
Matterport discounts Pro2 by $400; Pro2 Lite by $500 DanSmigrod 1 8 monthsDanSmigrod (19133): Grabs from Hi All, Matterport slashed prices today (Monday, January 2019): ✓ Matterport Pro2 3D Camera - Originally $3,395, will be available for $2,995 [$400 off] ✓ Matterport Pro2 Lite 3D Camera - Originally $2,495, will be available for $1,995 [$500...
Matterport Rental Advice Wonderdawg 2 8 monthsDanSmigrod (19133): @Wonderdawg What's different today than when you and I bought a Matterport camera on a leap of faith is that your friend can: ✓ engage a Matterport Pro to shoot his house and ask to watch the workflow ✓ get 1:1 training from a Matterport Pro near by ✓ subcontract Matterport scans to a MSP until if/when there is enough business to justify the investment ✓ rent a Matterport Camera from a nearly Matterport Pro (other than you :cool:...
Pro2 vs Pro2 lite Wonderdawg 6 9 monthsWonderdawg (246): If acollaborator is willing to host (no fees) does the Pro2 Lite make more sense? Only because of the lower bar to entry for purchasing. And if the output specs are the same, and hosting costs can be passed along, why not use a Lite?
Question of the Day: Why did you buy a Matterport Pro2 Lite 3D Camera? DanSmigrod 4 10 monthsDanSmigrod (19133): @BrokerBruce Do you shoot Matterport for your listings only? Side hustle offering Matterport? Happy holidays, Dan
Combining scans from the same location in order to remove "people" passing leonherbert 2 11 monthsJavieB (53): @leonherbert That would be great ! GSV Matterport App should publish on GSV the shots in 360.
Matterport Pro 2 lighting issues rzphotoman 10 11 monthsrzphotoman (1215): Update...just got the scan back after re-processing and it looks the same.
First time with Matterport Pro2 Dolloff 2 11 monthsHelloPado (109): I've been trying to decide if I want to make the change to a Pro2. I've only been an MSP since March and am impressed by the Pro1. Knowing what you do now about the Pro2, would you have made the change sooner? Thanks!
Matterport Pro-2 is now $3,395 - New Price Metroplex360 8 1 yearDanSmigrod (19133): Hi All, An update ... WGAN Member got is RMA number to return his Matterport Camera (within 30 days). Since the Member sees his business headed in the direction of AEC - including progress documentation, CUPIX is likely the best choice. (The WGAN Member has a call scheduled with CUPIX.) Best, Dan P.S. Matterport is a great solution; it's just there is a better solution for this Pro.

3DVista opinions? (Versus CUPIX and Matterport) CFster 15 1 yearGarySnyder (1757): I've use 3D Vista for 2 years now and I can tell you there is nothing that compares to it if you really use all of its functionally. You can create a VT’s that looks and feels just like MP with hotspots and even turn items in you photos into hotspots which can launch anything. You can drop in any image you want or blur an image. You have complete control of every pano. To top it off you can do the same magic with 360 videos, try that with MP....
Hardware Error - Sensor fault richeshkolhar 1 1 yearricheshkolhar (1): Hey Fellas, Accidentally, My Camera (Pro2) dropped on the floor due to a technical issue in Tripod. We are getting error of "Hardware Error - Sensor Fault" now. Contacted Matterport Service and received quote of 1200 USD. At the moment, Camera is in Bangalore (INDIA).

Original Matterport Pro1 Camera Now $1,899 DanSmigrod 4 1 yearhtimsabbub23 (759): Way to kill any resale value we did have. This company has been a joke from day one. Would never ever suggest anyone to buy one . The end user experience is amazing. The back end company is a joke.
Help. Matterport wont stay connected to IPAD FedTheRealtor 8 1 yearProperty3dNZ (613): @FedTheRealtor Hi There Sorry I have just seen this post now. A long time ago when I first started shooting with this camera I experienced something similar and wasted alot of time trying to figure it out! MP advised me that something else was interfering with the signal and advised me to turn off all electrical things in the area that could be interrupting the signal. This was not an option as I was scanning an apartment in a Retirement...
New Capture App and firmware update crashing tocha 6 1 yearVirtualView (25): What model is your iPad? Maybe it doesn't have enough memory for the speed that you are moving at?
Matterport or DSLR HDR? rzphotoman 18 1 yearHome3D (1313): Most of my clients represent high-end properties averaging about $3M and ranging from 2500 to over 12,000 sq ft. They expect the best in each of the products I deliver, MP, HDR photos and professional video. In this regard, only RAW format stills and the dynamic latitude they provide when processed through Lightroom and Photoshop achieve the professional level required. I shoot with the Sony a7sii as it's incredible low-light sensitivity...

Are the quality of pro1 tours getting worse? JCHAFE 11 1 yearjasondavidpage (193): 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.
Evolution HarlanHambright 2 2 yearsMeshImages (611): Recently I have re-uploaded an old tour, which could not be processed two years ago (Pro 1). Now it could. Cloud rendering has significantly improved, too. This model is a 7.500 SQM (75.000 SQFT) "Matterport monster".
Pro2 Power Button Issues newview 3 2 yearsron0987 (1153): @newview I hate to ask the obvious but have you call MP tech support to see what they say about the issue.
Turn off Matterport Pro2 GPS xavierchardon 4 2 yearsrzphotoman (1215): Not sure...there's a lot to read thru, but I bet something about that is in there. I would read it thru before attempting to disconnect it.
The Best Benefits of the Pro2 Property3dNZ 15 2 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.
Matterpot 360 Snapshot to Google My Business 3DSNAP 3 2 yearsleonvanzweel (507): Search your Business on Google Maps and upload from there or alternatively from the Google Street View app
How Do I get Safari NOT' to blow out Tours? advancedhdr 7 2 yearsMetroplex360 (9206): The problem is with Safari 11.0.2. SketchFab are also experiencing it. It is an Apple bug -- however, I think I know a fix that will at least make it tolerable... working on it.
Feedback/Question about Pro2 snaps vs. pics tombook 15 2 yearsrzphotoman (1215): @tombook Thanks...the learning is not bad at all. There are many training videos that come with the program. For $99 I don't think there's a better solution.
Matterport Pro2 versus Pro1 Images 3dshowcaseuk 17 2 yearsmori (708): As a pro DLSR user I would state that MP could never beat the quality of a good DSLR setup when also a pro is behind the cam. But for the average user it should be pretty ok.
Fast Matterport Scan... Wow! ArtisticConcepts 22 2 yearsMontreal3D (202): @ArtisticConcepts Mind to share the OBJ? Would'nt mind to sign NDA, simply have high interest in the current output data.
My Platform Before Matterport... Metroplex360 3 2 yearsron0987 (1153): I like it, what was the setup, DSLR, Nodal Ninja, and software would you mine share with us. Still looks great. Ron
Controlling Matterport Embeds and URL links Andyh2o2 2 2 yearsMetroplex360 (9206): If you hit the 'u' key on ANY tour you can get an embed link :) You can discourage by turning sharing off and embedding in WP3D Models. But if someone wants your link, there's really nothing you can do right now.
Matterport: Faster Scanning for Pro and Pro2 DanSmigrod 18 2 yearshtimsabbub23 (759): Anyone else still waiting on this beta update? I still haven't got mine yet, I signed up 8 hours after it was announced.
photos: MP vs Nikon D810 HarlanHambright 10 2 yearsMetroplex360 (9206): @HarlanHambright While I cannot confirm this, I think that the Matterport Camera does do 5 exposures... just not sure on what the intervals are. Of course, I would suspect that the sensor is by no means comparable to a DSLR - but is quite capable in its own right. @NestorSarmiento It's one of those use-case things. For a Realtor who might not own a DSLR, the Matterport is a single device that can produce photos that are automatically HDR. ...

Hire a Matterport Pro and WeddingWire Metroplex360 9 2 yearsDanSmigrod (19133): @tomasdunbar Imagine that you have a great venue for a wedding, BUT you are not getting as many in-person visits by potential brides. Using a Matterport 3D Tour to help generate more in-person visits, may well be worth the investment. For example, my wife and I stayed at a nice hotel in Atlanta during a recent hurricane. While there, I learned that they do many Indian weddings that typically last three full days and have many out-of-town...
Should I buy a refurbished Matterport Pro1? Liam_Tayler 4 2 yearsMetroplex360 (9206): Resolution, wider color ranger, faster speed. Google Street View publishing at > 100MP per Pano (coming soon). If successful, you'll be able to pay off your camera in no time. AND -- at the current moment and foreseeable future -- Matterport is a trusted brand that is in demand. With the recent integration with, I'm seeing more Realtors appreciate the value in the tool. With the integration of LEICA BLK360 next year, it's...

Matterport Pro2 "Wifi Fault" Error firoze 20 2 yearsfiroze (25): Yes, this was one of my suggestions after the second camera failed... but didn't push it much cos no one knew at that time, what was causing that error on pro2. After they diagnosed it, took them around 2 weeks to realize that firmware update is not going to come out soon so they sent the pro.

Matterport Syndication: a Blessing or Curse? DanSmigrod 29 2 yearsHopscotch (106): Chiming I don't know how many of you have used LoopNet and/or CoStar for marketing commercial spaces, but I used it for a client for about a year. Every time a photograph is uploaded to the system, it stays there indefinitely and becomes part of the property's photo stream from which you can then select on the backend. If a property is sold or changes hands, or is up for lease again, then as an admin in the LoopNet/CoStar account I could...
Matterport Pro2 3D Camera Scan Samples Metroplex360 20 2 yearsMetroplex360 (9206): @JCHAFE Yes, they are better. HDR on windows is still not DSLR quality. I wonder if Matterport just blindly takes each image and HDRs -- rather than spot metering ... that would be interesting if it would spot meter for the brightest and darkest areas.
Matterport Innovates with 5m Investment Metroplex360 2 2 yearsMetroplex360 (9206): Matterport raises $5 million to improve and enhance 3D-capture Matterport has announced that it has secured $5 million towards developing its 3D-capture technology.

Matterport Pro2 Shipping Issues?! runsweetlew 4 2 yearsrunsweetlew (7): So a not very clearly understood (at least to me) aspect of ordering was that if you took them up on their upgrade program, you got put at the end of the line. If you ordered new, you went to the top of the list. I was opting for the trade in program as I doubted the original would be worth as much as they were offering me. Then when I offered to buy a new one and the trade in one to get it sooner, they refused to put me any higher on the list....

Our first paid tour fotoguy 9 2 yearsfotoguy (297): @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 2 yearsQueen_City_3D (2445): @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 2 yearsMetroplex360 (9206): @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 2 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 2 yearsmori (708): 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 2 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?

Outsourcing to MSPs w/ Pro1 vs Pro2 Queen_City_3D 7 2 yearsnat_vanveen (595): @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 2 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.

I could imagine that the app has not fully populated the Apple App Store servers around the globe, even though the description has. Yikes! New Capture App - 2.3.2 Last week, we released a new version of the Capture app which supports...
Upgrade or not? What would you do? tocha 11 2 yearsQueen_City_3D (2445): 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...
The Next Generation: MatterBabies StevenHattan 30 2 yearsVTLV (1825): How can I become a card carrying member of the Matterbabies? We invested in the company being told future product capabilities were coming down the line. The wait times have been frustrating after watching videos from Matt Bell talking about upcoming product capabilities and not seeing the results come to us anytime soon after his announcements. Many members helped speed up the innovation while...
Why GPS on the Matterport Pro2 3D Camera? leonvanzweel 10 2 yearsMetroplex360 (9206): @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 2 yearsVTLV (1825): @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...
Matterport Pro2 Webinar - All Slides DanSmigrod 8 2 yearsFlightMedia (73): Hi Have I read this right if I trade my camera in I will get a refurbished camera with new and second hand parts. Text from Matterport's website. (Note, all Pro2 orders bought in association with the trade-in program will be fulfilled with Certified Refurbished Pro2 3D Cameras. These cameras are built from new and used parts, but have the same performance and carry the same 1-year warranty as a new Pro2 Camera. A little disappointed as when we...
Google Street View Will "Count" Towards Scan DanSmigrod 6 2 yearsDanSmigrod (19133): 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 2 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 2 yearsMetroplex360 (9206): @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 2 yearsHelen (754): 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 2 yearsjustinv (1021): 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 2 years3SixtyNow (360): 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"?
How fast can you scan with a Pro1 vs Pro2? DanSmigrod 19 2 yearshometakes (1089): Ok. Heres one thats 4000 ac and took just 55 scans.

I believe they will have some older cameras already refurbished and the rest will be the one's returned for an upgrade, seems that they replace a few parts and add GPS + bigger batteries and give a year warranty on it. @Metroplex360 : :-) thups-up @grmngrl : Yes you paid $4500, me too and $4500 in ZAR = 12 months salary (income)...
The Matterport 3D Pro2 Camera is a Joy! Metroplex360 23 2 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 2 yearsMetroplex360 (9206): @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 2 yearsDanSmigrod (19133): 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 2 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.

New Camera Price justinv 4 2 yearsGeorgeK (958): @Justinv We think alike Justin, I am still singing the benefits of having it but saying it has a higher resolution is not that big of a thing to me. I bet there is more on its way, in the digital space but right now in San Diego the percentage of Realtors even using the system is embarrassing given we are a high tech center and our prices are through the roof. Hope all is good your you in the TVA... george
Why Return Your Matterport Camera... DanSmigrod 5 2 yearsDanSmigrod (19133): Hi All, Just spoke with a new Matterport Pro. He got his camera in the last 30 days. He was not planning on returning it because s/he has places to scan and does not want to be without a Camera. I suggested: 1. Buy a used Matterport Camera on eBay. There will be a ton. And, eBay guarantees the purchase. 2. Make sure you get a photo of the serial number so that you can confirm with Matterport that the Camera was not stolen. 3. Return the new...
