However, now is a good time to upgrade to an iPad with more storage space. The new high quality, print-ready 4K photography that the new Pro2 Camera takes will require more storage space on your tablet. You will get the best performance out of an iPad with 2GB or more of RAM, especially when scanning large spaces.
First, turn the camera over and look for the model number.
|MC250||Matterport Pro2 3D Camera (new)|
|MC200||Matterport Pro 3D Camera|
Next, you can also tell by looking at the camera’s serial number. The serial number is located in three places:
|On the bottom of the camera|
|The name of the camera's WiFi network|
|In the Capture app after you connect|
Now look at the first letter in the serial number.
|P or later||Matterport Pro2 3D Camera (new)|
|A to N||Matterport Pro 3D Camera|
Keep it easy — just upload in the evening and check the next morning. Learn more about how long processing takes.
In fact, your 360º Views will have a higher quality 2D panorama imagery, just like 3D scans do in Inside View.
We use this data to automatically suggest an address for the space, to make publishing to Google Street View easier, reliably share your Space to our syndication partners (if you desire), plus future features.
GPS signals may be unavailable while deep inside a building, especially if the walls are very thick or protected. Take a few 360º Views outside to increase your location accuracy.
However, if you’ve currently connected your iPad to the camera, just take a look at the serial number. Serial numbers that start with P or later means you are connected to a Pro2 camera.
For Matterport Cloud and 3D Showcase, there is no direct indicator that says whether a Space was scanned with the Pro2 or Pro camera.
However, you can qualitatively tell the difference in 3D Showcase. Just zoom in! If the quality remains high then you’ll know the Space was scanned with a Pro2 camera.
