Lets see how this works when someone rents it with a stolen credit card...

I say best of luck to them and their renters. The risk of camera damage during shipping or use by a "renters" during setup and use just doesn't make sense to me... and the use of a Matterport that's been passed around seems a bit risky for the user as well.
It will be interesting.

@lisahinson

I redacted the contact info of the rental company. They are welcome to buy a promoted post...

Hi, i don't think its that bad. We rent out and rent camera equipment our selve for years. Never had a problem. Its the same concept used at audio an lighting gear. You can Dry-hire our with personel. Nothing wrong with this.

Happy scanning,
Grtz Rene.

@360Verbeelding I was just thinking it might be hard wear and tear on the camera .. If it works - great.

I didn't see the original link before Dan's appropriate redaction but I also found a site yesterday who was offering MP rentals, so I suspect it was the same site.

I actually found them intentionally as I was seeking a way to get hands-on experience with the MP solution prior to making a decision on purchasing.

But from this We Get Around forum thread
https://forum.we-get-around.com/topic/447/how-much-should-i-rent-my-matterport-camera/
last year, I can see this is a tricky and sensitive topic. And I agree with all of the reasons given there for recommending not to rent one's MP gear.

@RRapp If you rental a Matterport Camera, please share your experience with the MUG Forum community.

If you would like to engage a Pro - and ask to watch the workflow, including post production - the We Get Around Referral Network can connect you with a Pro near you.

If you do not see a Pro near you, please PM me and we will find one that is

Best
