Architects and realty firms will benefit from the 3D and 360° walkthrough capability in this portable Matterport MC250 Pro2 3D Camera Kit with Manfrotto Tripod put together by B&H. The kit includes the Matterport MC250 3D camera, the Manfrotto MT190X3 aluminum tripod, a Desmond Deluxe 60mm quick release clamp, and a Nanuk 925 hard-shell camera case.
The MC250 allows the user to create virtual 3D models of your space, such as a home, office, or architecture design setting, and it provides a 360° scan of your space in approximately 20 seconds. It will stitch the images it captures into 3D walkthroughs, tours, and maps of your space to enhance your realty, design, or architecture plans for your clients. The MT190X3 tripod is made from lightweight aluminum and allows you to mount the MC250 directly onto its mounting screw, use the included 60mm deluxe quick release clamp, or add an optional fluid head to facilitate camera movement. The waterproof hard-shell case features a custom-cut foam insert and provides storage for the Matterport camera and charger.
Add value to your visuals in real estate, engineering, architecture, or construction markets using the MC250 Pro2 Professional 3D Camera from Matterport. The Pro2 allows you to create virtual 3D models and schematics of physical spaces, as well as edit and share them using the Matterport app and cloud service. Create virtual walkthroughs for your real estate clients looking for a new home or office, or present VR presentations for architecture clients to get ideas for future designs.
The Pro2 can shoot a 360° scan of a physical space in about 20 seconds, sends it to your iPhone or Android phone, and the Matterport software scans the data and stitches the images into a 3D model and 360° panorama. The software allows you to create walkthroughs, tours, schematic maps, and professional-quality 2D still capture output. The Matterport cloud service requires a separately obtained login and provides collaboration, customization such as metadata tags, modeling file export, and editing tools.
You can also create custom metadata and editing using the Matterport API, which allows the use of custom editing applications, connection to Google Street View, and uploading and viewing on other services such as real estate, VR, or modeling websites. Along with viewing the footage on your phone, browser, or editing application, you can also view 3D/VR footage using the Matterport VR application in a VR headset such as Oculus Go, or by using your iPhone or Android phone with Google Cardboard VR.
To enhance your image quality and overall coverage area, the Pro2 can work alongside the optional Leica BLK360 3D camera, and the images can be integrated, mapped, and stitched together with the Matterport app. The addition of the BLK360 allows for wider and longer image areas, as well as brighter and crisper imagery.
The Manfrotto MT190X3 Aluminum Tripod is an addition to the popular 190 series, adding a Quick Power Lock System, ground level adapter, and an Easy Link attachment. It can hold up to 15.4 lb of gear, and has a maximum height of 63". The ground-level adapter replaces the center column to allow the tripod's mounting plate to sit just 3.5" above the ground with the legs at their widest angle.
The QPL system allows the three leg sections to be completely extended with one hand for simple set up. An Easy Link adapter attachment allows instant connection between tripod and accessories, such as LED lights for macro photography and DSLR video applications using Manfrotto articulated arms and brackets. Each leg can be set at four different angles to accommodate uneven ground or rough terrain.
The DAC-60 60mm QR Clamp from Desmond is an Arca-type compatible quick release clamp. Made from aluminum, the clamp is 60mm long, and has a removable bull's eye bubble level. A numbered scale on both sides of the clamp allow for precise adjustments of your camera plate. The clamp has a 3/8"-16 thread, and includes a 1/4"-20 bushing adapter, so it can be mounted to most tripods or tripod heads.
Transport and protect your Matterport Pro1 or Pro2 3D camera and accessories with this iM2300 Storm Case from Pelican. This injection-molded case is made of HPX high-performance resin that is virtually unbreakable and both dent and shatter resistant. It is tough, rugged, lightweight, airtight, and watertight.
There is a permanently attached Vortex valve that automatically adjusts air pressure without letting in water and won't unscrew from the case. Press & Pull latches open with the push of a button, yet stay closed securely under impact or stress. The case has unbreakable molded-in hasps that allow the addition of standard-size padlocks. The hinges feature integrated feet that hold under impact and create a flat surface for upright stability. It is carried by a double-layered, soft-grip, solid-core handle that provides strong, durable comfort.
