I found the forum doing some digging around looking for advice comparing the Pro2 to some popular 360 cameras, I've been browsing and found a lot of great advice.
Looking to start a virtual tour business (ideally to scale and hire people), in the planning stages currently. Was contemplating the Z1 but I'm leaning on getting the Pro2 instead.

|@holzr - If your plan is to create Matterport tours, get the Pro 2. Yes, it costs more and cannot shoot exteriors in direct sunlight, however it captures REAL depth data which means accurate measurements, floor plans and a world of difference. IMHO, the Z1 is a great 360° camera but should be viewed as an adjunct to the Pro cameras, not a replacement.
Good luck with your plans!

|Hi all - Scott here from New Zealand. Matterport Service Partner, using Pro2 and BLK360, also have some SDK and API developments underway. We've been doing this for over a year and focusing on operational uses - lots around investment properties using WP3D, MPEmbed, MP plus our own 2D Image Library. Also doing some cool outdoor stuff - for example: https://www.homeplan.nz/spaces/christ-church-taita-lower-hutt-nz.
Have been browsing the forum for a while, great source of info and sharing, looking forward to helping others were we can, and being helped when we need it .

|Hi there... I am a real estate agent in Arizona, also licensed in California and soon to be Florida. I have owned a brokerage in the past with about 400 agents... I now run a team of 60+ agents in Arizona, hoping to grow my team to 300+ agents. Matterport is a big part of my offer for agents. I use Matterport, Captur3D and MPembed... I am looking for the best of the best tools and am open to leaning more to really differentiate myself ... Thank you.|

I'm a web developer and Google Photographer here in Kansas City Missouri. I've bee doing freelance google virtual tours for the last two years. I just bought the Ricoh Z1 and have become a Matterport provider.
I'm amazed at the quality and the ease it is to do virtual tours with this particular platform. Anyway, I'm joining this network and applying to become a Zillow photographer as well.
My goal is simple: I want more inbound leads for work.

|Hello...Rob here from the Sonoma County area of California. I am a real estate agent and have experience with the Matterport camera provided by our broker.
We since changed brokerages. The new brokerage does not have Matterport so I just bought Theta Z1. I found this forum helpful when doing research so thanks for that. Here is my first tour using the Z1 and Ricoh Tours site to produce the tour. I am still learning it. It's not Matterport but not bad for basic VT.
Oh and every profile photo I add turns it sideways so there's that.

|Hello Everyone! I own Jwalt Photography out of Southern Illinois. We are a growing photography business that just switched over from Matterport to Asteroom and could not be happier with the change. We shot roughly 100 houses in 2017, 250 in 2018, and 700 in 2019. We are pacing 1200 already this year. I currently use an iPhone as the camera on the tours but am upgrading to the Z1 this week. I found this forum online and thought it may be a great way to learn and connect with others in the industry. As of right now 3D tours only account for 8% of our business, but I think with the right tools and pricing, we will pushing it to 50%.
I recently shot this tour with the Asteroom and while I still have a lot of learning to do, it is unbeatable for the price. Perfect for realtors looking for an affordable 3D tour solution.
Thank you and I look forward to seeing what I can learn.

Does the iphone sit on a tripod and do you need an iPad to capture the scan? What kind of tripod? How much is Asteroom. Is it faster to capture than Matterport? Thanks!
