Hey Guys! I am from Alabama and have been flying the drone scene for 3 years and using 3Dvista to create ideas. I love this forum! Packed full of info and ideas. Good job Dan!

I recently did a "Needs assessment tour" for a local school official to help them be able to get "inside" the problem areas faster to show the board their needs. This was a combination of Drone, Matterport and 3Dvista.

Hello all !
I'm using a PRO2 Matterport camera for more than a year now.
I mainly work with architects and building engineers. I use the point cloud to model what I scanned.
I also provide home staging services.

Thanks for sharing !

Hello, I am focussing on exclusively on art galleries and exhibitions.
I believe 3D tours could help in a purpose close to my heart, extending both the accessibility and lifespan of art exhibitions. I've joined the forum in the hope that I can soak up all the best from your excellent 3D Tour experiences.

Your thoughts about Matterport tours meets art spaces/art installations

Hi all!

I'm starting out getting into real estate photography and 360 tours. Just bought a Theta V as an entry to practice on, and probably getting a canon rebel t6 or 7 with 10-18mm lens. Have lots of questions and glad to be around like-minded people.

Cheers!

I'm Daryl, from San Jose, California. I'm a long-time photographer (when "film photography" was just photography) now going full-time pro. I'm aiming primarily at the real estate and AEC space. I've found this forum quite informative in the short time I've been here. Many thanks to Dan and all the members!

DylanWilcox private msg quote post Address this user
Hi,

I am starting a Virtual Tour/Media business in Wisconsin. I would like to build virtual tours for small business owners to help gain more leads and improve their google rank. My thought is businesses such as wedding/business venues, beauty & spas, nursing home, dental/health care, and local gyms. The idea is to target clients that would be paying for a monthly hosting fee for passive income instead of targeting high luxury real estate.

If you've had any success/failures with any of the businesses I have listed please feel free to reach out. Would love to gain some insight from like minded individuals.

I have completed a 3D tour of my house with the iPhone XS on Matterport but am looking at purchasing a real 360 camera and choosing a software.

Deciding between the Insta360 One X2 / Theta Z1 / or wait for these programs to take full advantage of the iphone 12 Pro with the Lidar.

Also deciding between softwares: Matterport / Kuula / Metareal. Open to other software as I have limited experience with 3D stitching.

HI Dan and all! My name is Mike Willstrop and thank you for the Acceptance. Along with two good cameramen I run www.best360photography.com based in the City of London, England. The bulk of our 360 work is for real estate agents in a number of platforms including Matterport. We are CAA licensed for aerial 360s and video and have some projects in the TV and Film sector. We cover the U.K. as we are exempt from CV-19 work/travel restrictions. I am greatly impressed by the quality of WGAN posts and I look forward to contributing too! Keep safe everyone

Hi everyone, I'm new to 360 tours and would like to learn as much as I can with the help of WGAN. I would like to start a 360 tours video business catering for small businesses around my area by using freelance videographer/photographer initially and maybe learn to do it myself at some point.

My name is Jonathan and I'm glad I found this wonderful resource and community.

I'm a bit of a serial entrepreneur on the side, but currently work full time in Detroit Automotive specializing in Corporate and International Finance. I'm in the middle of exiting another business I'm in and I've finally decided to start something I've loved and that has been a passion for a long time. Real Estate and Photography.

Photography and videography has been a hobby for a long time, but mostly weddings (which I don't care much for these days). I love all things VR and the 3D space is something I'm wanting to go after actively. Looking forward to learning from everyone here and hopefully being able to contribute as well.

Hiya, I'm Aidan from the UK. I'm a web designer and I'm planning to move in February or March and start virtual tour photography on the side, hopefully growing it into a business. I've built a website and researched my offering and prices but I'm still making a decision about cameras and hosting platforms. I'll likely go with a Theta Z1 and Matterport (or similar to Matterport, like Metareal or Benaco) unless the Matterport Pro3 comes out in time and offers the right functionality and price, which I doubt.

Hi everybody, my name is Peter from Germany. I started a couple of years with a regular full format camera to make the first panos. Then I came to a Insta360 one X2 and after to an Phase S2 to make panos in one ride. After testing a lot of software solutions I ordered 3DVista and I'm happy with it.
I look forward in sharing my journey with the community and hope to get some feedback for my issues!
