Good Morning Folks, Just a note to say hello and give you the skinny on what we do.

Glad to help with any of the services we offer and looking forward to sharing and being a part of the WGAN Clan !!!

Started in 1982 with my first wedding shot with a Nikon F3HP I was in love with photography and it continued to grow while I blossomed in my Retail Management career. My last film Cameras were eos1v HS
and a Mamiya 645 Moved to digital in 99 with a Nikon DCS660 and moved back to Canon when the first EOS 1D came out. Today we Love the 1DXmkII's and all the Canon L Glass from the 11 to 24 to the 300 2.8
I have been Full time in imaging since 2001

We focus on Portraiture and commercial and have a full video suite with complete Audio and every thing to keep it steady or keep it moving. We added Realestate and property imaging many years ago but have been most excited about the addition of the iGuide system in June of 2017

Check it out look us up and all the best and Blessings to you

My name is Darryl Biggs and am the President of Threat Mitigation-Risk Control Group, located in Arizona.

Purpose of joining this group is that I'm looking at purchasing 3D Vista Pro and looking for the right camera for this software. I've been looking at the following cameras- Ultracker Aleta S2C, Ricoh V Theta, Vuze XR, Panono, and Matterport.

This is to conduct Advances and then layout the buildings to team members in order to have an overview of the building in 2D, 3D and VT.

I'm not sure if I could take the information from MP and import into 3D Vista, if not, then will need a camera that I can and looking for advice.

I do own a DSL, however that would take to much time to take the photos. We usually have 30-60 minutes in a building to shoot and need a 360 degree camera.

Thank you

@DarrylB220 I would hold off just a little while and look at the Ricoh Theta z1, at about $999 a little cheaper but would probably do what you need. The reason to wait they are not available for about another week. Welcome to the forum.

My name is Matt and I live in the Tampa, FL area. I am a school teacher and part-time realtor. I got the idea to look into Matterport for the 3D property tours with thoughts of marketing myself to other agents and making extra money that way since it's relatively quick and I can do it in the afternoons when I'm done teaching. Unfortunately my real estate ventures aren't really soaring because I can't devote my full time to it. Being that this wouldn't be my primary job I figure I can undercut local pricing and get some decent business. The pricing seems a little confusing, but I think I have a decent handle on it. At $3,400 the camera is a bit steep, and I just saw that they support some much cheaper 360 degree cameras, which I thought about trying to see how it goes. Just looking for thoughts and advice on breaking into the industry. I might have to sell another house or two before I pull the trigger as I'd prefer to pay for all the equipment up front rather than throw any of it on a credit card, but I want to do all of my homework. The Pro2 camera seems like the best option, especially with the added benefits & processing credit. Just seems like A LOT of stuff to consider.

Welcome to the WGAN Forum. I have moved your question to a new discussion:

Should this Part-Time Realtor Buy a Matterport Pro2 3D Camera?

Hi, my name is Sid. I'm a licensed broker from St. Louis, MO. My wife has a real estate team and I manage the day to day backend tasks (which until about a year ago included taking photos).

Finally pulled the trigger on buying a Matterport Pro 2 camera after seeing the WP3D plugin. Our first two tours/single property websites went life last week.

I am evaluating becoming a service provider. Want to get a bit more experienced with the camera first, then I think I'll up my membership to get the pricing guide so I can fully evaluate it.

If anyone has any examples of how agents/brokers are marketing their Matterport/Single Property Sites, I'd love to see them (in particular direct mail/postcards to expired listings). I have seen the WGAN videos.

I will post my first two tours for advice in a separate post because I'm not really happy with the flow of navigation through the homes.

Hey All,

My name is John. I am an independent adjuster out of North Carolina. I have been researching Matterport, Cupix, cameras etc. for the past few months. My research led me to this place where I have followed posts of Dan and others. I have noticed that there really hasn't been a lot of talk on here for adjusters so I am going to jump into the arena and try a few things out and try to provide others some insight based on my future experiences.

Good Evening Everyone,

My name is Harold Jackson. I have to say, this is very overwhelming for me. I am however excited to be here and in the 3D business. I just received my Pro2 from Matterport and not sure what type of marketing I should do. Should I sign up on KoaWare or market this new adventure myself? Bottom line is that I want to say goodbye to my day job and get right into marketing myself. I don't have any examples of my work to show so what do I do to show proof that I am worthy of someone's business? I need help and guidance. Where do I begin?

Thank You,
