In addition to the Matterport™ Pro2 camera, available via https://matterport.com/pro2-3d-camera/ some additional equipment is required for obtaining a successful scan. These include:
- Professional grade tripod
The Pro2 3D Camera weighs 7,5 lbs. (3,4 kg) and rotates 360 degrees while scanning. Therefore, it is necessary to use a high-quality tripod that will not move or shake during the scanning process. It should be height adjustable. We recommend using some heavy-duty stand available from professional vendors.
We also recommend purchasing an Arca-Swiss compatible quick-release clamp that allows for easy fixation and release of the scanner on the tripod. This speeds-up handling of the Pro2 3D Camera during scanning.
- iPad tablet or iPhone 6s or newer
The Matterport™ Capture App, required to control the Matterport™ camera is only supported on iOS devices. The app connects to the Matterport™ camera and is necessary for controlling and managing the scans. It is free to download from the Apple App Store.
For further details and specific recommendations see the Matterport™ Tripods, quick release clamps, and cases guide.
NOTE: In some situations, the abovementioned equipment might be acquired through rental or data generated by a full-service provider or an agency.
