I own an aerial videography company and have done several virtual home tours using an Osmo with my DJI X5 camera for interiors. I recently started researching the Matterport camera system for actual 3D virtual tours, but it just seems too good to be true and I don't want to invest money into something that may not perform like it is advertised.
Do you have any experience with this camera system, and what is your opinion of it?
The Matterport camera system has been in use for many years and has been growing in popularity. It certainly performs as advertised. Many real estate photographers provide Matterport tours as a service.
We have had many discussions about it here on the blog in the past. Here is the most recent post. As you can see from the comments on past posts there are a variety of opinions about whether or not to provide it as a product.
Because the gear is very expensive, it takes a fair amount of time to create tours and you have to pay to host tours. The key decision everyone has to make is will your local market support this kind of service? Do your research carefully to make sure there is demand in your market to make this a profitable service.
