I have a job to shoot on Thursday that requires 8-10 360 exterior scans. Thew weather forecast is for -21 degrees Fahrenheit wind chill. Does anyone know if the Matterport Pro2 will even operate in those conditions?

According to their own tech specs, no. HOWEVER, since you only need 8-10 exterior scans, keep the camera in a warm place, then go out and shoot each 360 sequentially, with a warm up in between. Even if it is that cold, the camera can't cool down far enough (I don't think)in a short time to be rendered inoperable.

Good luck, and stay warm!!

I have a clause in my contract that states that I reserve the right to not scan if conditions are not deemed safe for me or my equipment. I think -21 would fall under that clause, I would not risk a 4000 Dollar piece of equipment for any scans at -21.

Like he said

@rzphotoman

If you keep it warm and then go outside, careful about the camera fogging up.

@DanSmigrod I agree with Dan you may have the camera fogging up. I would save them for last, so if it fogs up or you have a camera issue in the cold the main project would be done.

Thanks everyone. I do have "weather permitting" in the contract regarding the outdoor scans and most likely will postpone them.

@rzphotoman I have shot on an oil rig and it was 147.2 Farenheit + , nearly passed out twice from the heat. But camera worked fine and client was amazed. But again doing it on your own risk.

Thanks again everyone. I was able to re-schedule it for the next day. Supposed to be much warmer...around +20 degrees Fahrenheit. I can handle that.

I would imagine that you may have better luck using an insta360 ONE X at these temperatures! No rotation and you can warm the camera in your gloves between shots!
