|I've been mulling over the purchase of the Matterport Pro2 camera vs the Pro2Lite especially with the $200 discount (EXPIRES DEC 31st, 2018)
I've been very satisfied with the original Matterport and was only interested when a third party was offering jobs only if I used a Pro2 camera.
After a bit of research, it comes down to the math.
I have the $99 plan which offers 7 free scans per month.
So if the ProLite costs an addl $29 per scan ($58 for 101 and larger) at seven scans per month, I would incur an additional $203 per month.
Over a year period, using the Pro2Lite would cost me an addl $2520.
So the math looks like this -
Pro2Lite @ $2495 - add $2520 - net cost - $5015
Thus there's a penalty of $1620.
I doubt if a collaborator would desire someone to use a Pro2Lite on their account at the $29 scan price.
So I figure at 5 to 7 low end jobs, I can get the Pro2 paid off quickly.
There may be some upside in marketing of a Pro2 camera over other providers.
As a architectural photographer, I'm not sure of the quality of the stills, so that remains to be seen.
Also keep in mind, the $200 offer expires TODAY December 31.
There is a FED ex charge ($55 for me); the cameras are in stock and there is a 30 day return policy. So if January rolls around, and there's another promotion, I'm told that I would keep the camera and my account plan would receive a credit.
Hope this helps! Happy scanning and I'm wishing you all the profitable* work you can handle for 2019!
*don't give away your work*

|Bingo. Pro-2 Lite is a terrible deal if you do the math And it looks kinda silly.
I think they wanted to hit a certain price point as a marketing stint.
