Question of the Day: What height do you set your Matterport Camera? DanSmigrod 13 25 daysDanSmigrod (18729): Hi All, This question seems to come up a lot. I agree with ... Wondering if @Property3NZ sets it any lower than 4 feet (1.22 meters). The following is also great advice by @walkintour Other thoughts on the topic of Matterport Pro2 3D Camera height? Enjoy your weekend, Dan
Tripod Legs or "cockroaches" ??? Gerhard 4 29 daysVTLV (1728): I wouldn't waste my time trying to apologize. Take a look at some of your portfolios or examples on your website. Hopefully, you will see tripod feet in one of them you can reference. Then explain it is something you cannot edit out of the tour. If you get more resistance, mention most clients use the tour to navigate the property and inspect when they arrive in person. Took 12 tours to find a flaw? Sounds like a search for discount or a...
Gear of the Week: Manfrotto MT190XPRO4 4-Section Aluminum Tripod DanSmigrod 1 1 monthDanSmigrod (18729): Gear of the Week --- https://forum.we-get-around.com/cached/9e90faa23b54d65160c8cc0dd43336dc.png Manfrotto MT190XPRO4 4-Section Aluminum Tripod Hi All, If you are just getting started with a Matterport Pro2 3D Camera, among the first gear questions that you will have is, "Which tripod should I get and why?"

Need a tripod for the GEOCV camera jzgk 2 2 monthssameerak (25): Hi Jzgk Here at GeoCV we internally use and recommend the Manfrotto 190go! tripod However, any tripod that supports 5 lbs of load and has a 3/8"-16 Screw will work with our system. These specs are common in most tripods on the market. With the GeoCV Scanner Kit we provide the quick release plate clamp that you attach onto the screw at the top of the legs in order to secure the scanner to the tripod.
Matterport Piece of Gear of the Week: Tripod Dolly DanSmigrod 2 3 monthsleonherbert (408): Absolutely, When you are using a new iPad Pro you would be wasting time, lifting and placing the tripod all the time. The secret is to have a second tripod for stairs. One issue I have with my manfrotto 190 (three extension)is that I have too not fully extend the legs so I get the camera at the best height. I need to try and find a tripod that would only need the middle column raised a little. I am looking at getting another dolly to use on...

Any good tripod for a Matterport camera with legs locking? Wingman 3 5 monthsGladsmuir (61): Manfrotto used to do a Triaut which had central bracing and goes up to about 12 feet. I bought one in 1979 and it's still going strong. It does weigh a ridiculous amount. Manfrotto currently do the similar Aluminium Pro Geared Tripod with Geared Column - Black SKU 475B which is listed at £400, but available for less on Amazon. https://www.manfrotto.ie/aluminium-pro-geared-tripod-with-geared-column-black They also do video tripods that...

Question of the Day: Which Tripod Head do you use with Matterport? DanSmigrod 2 8 monthsChemistrydoc (939): @DanSmigrod Desmond DLEV-1 + Distal Clamp, yet I usually still adjust level using the tripod legs and a Home Depot el-cheapo bubble level. Keith
360 tour solutions for small spaces? CFster 3 9 monthsleonvanzweel (507): @CFster I use a bushman panoramic Eben VR tripod which I had modified (single leg and top extenders) by an engineering shop to reduce the height further. It is mounted on a wooden triangle that fits on the seat for stability and weighed down with a 10kg Kettlebell. This is my 5th prototype. Not perfect yet, but damn close.

Question of the Day: With this, can you do a Matterport house tour faster? DanSmigrod 5 11 monthsfrstbubble (593): I open spaces. In regular homes, it is too big to move through the clutter.
Best Tripod Revised 2018? VTLV 12 11 monthsCFster (266): I think this thing costs like $5k or something, but I like idea, and I wonder why some other manufacturer hasn’t come up with something similar. Acadalus Self Levelling Tripod Head
Question of the Day: How have you modified Matterport Camera or Tripod? DanSmigrod 7 1 yearDanSmigrod (18729): @CFster This one looks like it has a smaller footprint. If you get it, please let us know if the wheels come off. Seems like someone must have invented a tri-shape bracket that adjusts to the location within the tripod where you would like to control the legs, as you described. Best, Dan

Question of the Day: Which Tripod & Head do you use with Matterport Camera? DanSmigrod 7 1 yearMetroplex360 (9194): @PeterMcCready I've been screwing the Matterport Camera on my tripod since September 2015 - and I've tried 2 quick releases and just didn't see the advantage. I still have to take the quick release off when I put my DSLR on as I have a different head for that anyway (or I use my Alta Vanguard Pro 2+ for my DSLR)... DLEV is well made, I just don't really see the point. I can level my camera with a bubble in the shoe by moving my legs around.
Best Tripod for Matterport? JAX1979 7 2 yearsTrustedPhotoDC (1108): @JAX1979 for a number of reasons, you really want the carbon version of any tripod you purchase.
Desmond DLEV-1 Leveler-Manfrotto MT190XPRO4 DanSmigrod 12 2 yearsMetroplex360 (9194): I recently purchased a DESMON DLEV-1 and have had the SAME problems. I've found that it's necessary to have the top washers tightened to not get this. Problem is, with the DLEV-1 tight, it loses flexibility and kind of defeats the whole purpose. I have been meaning to start a thread about this little accessory to get some feedback as I have been racking my brain trying to figure out how to take advantage of it. Many people swear by...
Effect of Camera Height Richierichks 15 2 yearscraigsauer (1000): I'm just finding this thread as I'm searching for threads about verticals. I'm hoping to get some opinion from Matterport with regards to this issue now that they are really marketing the new camera as providing sufficiently high quality captures to use for real estate marketing stills. I'm pretty unconvinced, primarily because of the issue of the verticals in the Matterport images. Whenever I capture images (primarily for Guided Tours) I...

Lowering tripod and its effects? EricThomas 4 4 yearsdfellars (52): https://my.matterport.com/show/?m=9hoRwMjcWSR 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...
