3D or 360° - What's the Difference6239

Is the Matterport camera a 360° camera or a 3D camera? How would you explain the difference?

I'm a newbie but I would say it's both since it takes both 360 & 3D

Lmtless,

MP is a 3D camera with 360 capabilities.

You use the 360 mostly for external shots with much sunlight, the 3D is for inside without sunlight.
3D cameras do not like direct sun as the IR sensors (lasers) can't beam thru to record spacial data.
With Google Street View, you would upload as 360 for GSV.
I too am a newbie, hope this helps.
