Hello everyone! My name is Chuck Swartz and I just purchased my first camera and expect delivery tomorrow. I'm a Realtor and plan to use the camera to expand my business. I reside in Myrtle Beach, SC so if you know of anyone needing service in this area, please let me know.

Also, if anyone has and would like to share a business plan that has worked for you, I'd be eternally grateful. I'm looking forward to taking advantage of all the good stuff here on this forum.

Hi everyone --

Just discovered this forum after owning the !atterport for about 3-4 months. I'm a real estate salesperson with Keller Williams NYC (Manhattan) and my team focuses on New Developments/Condo Conversions as well as luxury real estate.

We've done about 15 scans to date and we're building a new website to help showcase the models.

One area I'm particularly intrigued by is converting the highlight reels into videos which can be used in social media. I've created a couple of #15secTours for Instagram and just finished a new 45-second version using Camtasia screen capture and then Adobe premiere to speed up the transitions.

#15secTour --
Video for FB --

Looking forward to seeing what everyone else is doing with this great tech.

Hi @Sedry welcome. There is a great deal of information and sharing on thE MUG. Had a look at your videos. I haven't started down that track but one of my real estate agents has suggested that a video would be worth producing for the seller / buyer post sale as a momento.

So welcome again.

Hey everyone,

I'm Chris and I've owned my Matterport for a few months now. I am a Managing Broker in two states PA/IL. I am offering the tours as a standard for our listing starting this year.

I had trouble finding a case so we developed two cases that are now available. Check them out. Facebook Link:clickable text

Looking forward to a great 2016 and getting to know some of you!

Here is a video we are working on to introduce the Matterport's abilities also. We started with this before Matterport was adding any grips within there scans so we may change it a bit moving forward.

Hi. I have created an SaaS tool that goes great with the Matterport product. This software allows you to make any Video, Image, map, Drone fly over etc,Interactive (plus much more). So as the video or image shows the front door (Or anywhere you want) a window pops up that displays the Matterport 3D video in it. They never have to leave the screen and can quickly play any area they want to see the 3D video for. If interested just let me know and I can show you a sample etc. So many uses. Thanks, Steve Stone 303-731-3028

Not sure about this, would need to see better examples.

Nothing really new, just a bunch of video editing tools you can get for free on most video editing sites or software.

Sorry, Im talking about the post from Steve Stone.

Hi Everyone,
I am a new Matterport service provider, located in Nantucket, MA and Vail, CO. I used to offer virtual tours using iPix technology, but with this new Matterport camera I think my fisheye lens will become a paperweight on my desk!

I am an entrepreneur, real estate investor and owner of two vacation rental companies. Oh, and I just had my first child 4 months ago!

I have read quite a few posts on this forum and I am excited to be apart of it.

KPunsvik private msg quote post Address this user
Hi everyone, I am new to Matterport.

I live in Narvik, Norway. I got my MAtterport camera in december 2015 and have done 10-15 models so far. I use it mainly as a supplement in my business as a real estate photographer, and it is a very powerful marketing tool!

I also market it towards museums, hotels and other tourist-attractions in my area as an add-on to stills.

I made a 3D-scan of the local war museum here in Narvik (believe it or not, Narvik was strategic for the nazis during the war) and I (and the museum director!) is amazed over how large model you can make from the camera.

(Website only in norwegian, but I guess you get the point...)

Hello All!

This is Chuck from Castle Rock, CO. Although my background is not in photography (it’s actually in Banking) a number of my neighbors are real estate as agents, brokers and developers who have showed a great deal of interest in 3D interactive presentations. I have side hobby which is a aerial drone inspection business (should be getting my FAA 333 exemption any day) and thought it would be a good idea to give the Matterport a try and expand the services offered to include not only the outside but also the inside! Time will only tell.
The forum is great and very informative. If you know anyone needing 3D service in the Denver or surrounding areas, give me shout out.

BlackCactus private msg quote post Address this user
Greetings all. I'm Steve Kelley owner of Black Cactus Photography in Tucson, Arizona. I will be receiving my camera in a few days and I look forward integrating 3D photography into my real estate photography subsidiary, BlackCactus4RealEstate. I've been shooting residential and some commercial properties for about 4 years in the metro Tucson area. As far as I can tell, I will be the first in this area to use the Matterport. I'm looking forward to using this tool in my RE photo business and exploring other uses. Thank you, all, in advance for providing useful information and guidance via this forum. Later...from the "Old Pueblo".

PS Greetings to my neighbors up North in the "Valley of the Sun".

Hello! My name is Lisa Hinson and I'm in Santa Fe, NM. Just received my MP 3D Camera around Jan. 20th. There is so much great information out there and it is really appreciated. My skills are Information Systems not Photography but I'm enjoying the Matterport camera. The museum (@KPunsvik) is great! There is so much information, I'm sometimes overwhelmed but thank the members for being so helpful.

Hello MUG Members,

James Aguilar here from Central Florida. I have been a Real Estate Agent for over 25 years and the 3DM is an amazing tool to gain listings, not to mention, a great potential money earner! I have a few dozen listings and I'm a Vacation Home Specialist for a few Central Florida Management Companies that rents hundreds of vacation homes in the Disney area.

Pardon me and thank you in advance because I may ask a lot of questions in the future. Hopefully I get busy enough that I will buy another camera and hire more photo-video-graphers.

I can't wait for fed-ex to arrive today!

Greetings from the Crystal Coast of North Carolina. I am in the beginning stages of learning & acquiring the Matterport gear. A big kudos to Dan Smigrod for his timely assistance in reaching out to my intital requests for information. This forum network is awesome, and I plan to use it and explore all the resources available. My background is in Audio/Video production. Recently I have slipped away from my passion, and have been in the 9-5 work world, out of my “lane”. My current plans are to get back to the creative world, utilizing the Matterport gear and other accessories. I look forward to networking with all the current pros. Your feedback and encouragement will be welcomed!

I forgot to introduce myself on the official Hiya :-) page. Jon Nash here from Brighton in the UK. Iv'e recently taken delivery and I'm dipping my toes in the water to see if this has any legs here in the UK. Most of my work is overseas but I'm curious to know if the UK is receptive to this product.
