Matterport Crash Test Results1401

Good News!

Today my Manfrotto tripod failed for no reason at all and my camera crashed to the floor mid scan. I was on a sky bridge in a modern home and had it fallen the other way it would have toppled over the railing then crashed 12' below.

It glanced off a drywall corner on its way which the agent wasn't too happy about but as you can imagine, I couldn't have cared less out the drywall in that moment.

It made a huge crash sound so I thought it was all over for me. But after restarting it, there wasn't even a hiccup. The thing is like a little tank.

So take comfort in knowing that our cameras are well built. While you're at it, go and tighten all the bolts on your tripod!

That's crappy.
I had one behind a dor that was knocked over when the home owner walked in. Lucky I was close enough to catch it.

Bummer when that happens. Mine fell over onto a tile floor. Still worked fine but had a battle scar. Now I make sure all the screws are tight every 3 weeks. I have it as a recurring task on my calendar.

Thanks for posting! I do lock doors when my camera is in front of it. Especially the front door! I've always been nervous about someone knocking it over.
