Hi Matterport Gurus! I have had my camera for a month now and am learning something at every shoot. I purchased the Manfrotto tripod as suggested .. I am constantly battling with it adjusting one leg or another to get it balanced (according to my level).. Is this normal? Any tripod advice would be appreciated! Lisa

I re-balance my tripod on every scan...more so on the ones I KNOW I'm going to keep. Very rarely does my tripod not need minor adjustments.

I've found if you adjust two at time (legs) it helps tremendously.

I just ordered the Desmond DLEV-1 Leveler Level for Tripod 3/8" Stud from Amazon. Hoping that will help speed up the process. $50.00

Thank you StevenHattan and kenangiguere for your responses. I seriously thought I was just doing something wrong. I'd like to hear if the Desmond DLEV-1 ... you mentioned does what you expected; if so, I'll buy one too! Thanks again!

You're probably still doing it wrong, though. ;-)

In this We Get Around blog post ...

Matterport Photographers: Tripod, Leveler and Bubble Level Solution

... I explain why I recommend the Desmond DLEV-1 Leveler and which tripod (not the one Matterport recommends, otherwise the Matterport Camera will sit too high).

I recommend this combination for the exact reason you described.

You will find the Desmond DLEV-1, the tripod and other "must have" in my Matterport Gear and Accessories shopping list.

Best,

Dan
