Meet the best camera for real estate

The Matterport Pro2 134MP Professional Capture 3D Camera is the ultimate tool for real estate agents looking to capture high resolution, accurate, and fast 3D images to improve their listings. Ideal for shooting houses, residential areas, and large commercial spaces and buildings, the 134-megapixel 3D camera creates flawless virtual tours of properties of any size. Virtual property tours have become an essential part of the real estate industry as agents look to creative solutions that allow interested buyers to view a property without actually walking through the door.

The Matterport Pro2’s system is easy-to-use and designed to aid the real estate industry in creating professional photographs and virtual staging. Users can seamlessly control the camera and manage the 3D reconstruction process with industry-leading speed and accuracy.

Matterport’s powerful platform makes it easy to create, customize, publish, and maintain a highly accurate digital copy of any property. The Matterport Pro2 can scan a room and upload the data directly to a smartphone or tablet in under 30 seconds. Using the Matterport Capture App, compatible with any iOS device (Android applications coming soon), capturing images in 3D is as simple as a press of a button, automating the entire process. Users of all skill levels can share images and related assets with anyone on any device resulting in increased productivity and collaboration, and expansion on customer engagement.

With one scan, users are able to generate 4K print-ready 2D photography, 3D virtual tours, and interactive floor plans. The Matterport Pro2 captures images in 134 megapixels and automatically adjusts the white balance for a detailed, clean scan. It boasts 99% accuracy in its representations of 3D spaces and works up to 15 feet at a time. The 3D camera is equipped with eight hours of continuous scanning on one charge, and only takes 4.5 hours to fully charge.

Users can enhance their 3D scans with “mattertags” (annotations and media that are inserted at specific points throughout a property to add more information), as well as floor plans and measurements to add specific details. Additionally, the GPS function allows for specific locations to be included in the scan. Measurements of walls, rooms, doors, etc., can be changed in the 3D virtual tour mode and an optional schematic floor plan gives the space an accurate look. The 3D media platform makes it easy for anyone to create interactive 3D walkthroughs of any real world place.

The data from the scan is always stored, so users are able to revisit their shoot and pull images if there is a need of additional material. Users can generate 4K print quality photos, videos, animated GIFs, OBJ, XYZ, JPEG, and PDF files. Users can export images up to 8092 pixels x 4552 pixels for impeccable dimensional accuracy.

Once users sign up for a Matterport subscription plan, they are one click away from publishing their 3D spaces. Choose between two separate online plans that give options for additional users and active spaces, as well as the option for publishing to Google Street View, exporting traffic reports, and more. 

The Matterport Pro2 134MP Professional Capture 3D Camera is available now at Adorama for $3,395 MSRP.
