Why should I use the recommended tripod and quick release clamps?

The tripods and clamps that we recommend have been rigorously tested in-house to ensure it provides a strong, stable base for the Matterport Pro or Pro2 3D Camera.

Many tripods are not built to support a camera weighing 10 lb (4.5 kg). The tripod may flex or wobble while the camera is rotating.

This can result in lower quality scan data and increase the risk of misalignments.

Other hardware — especially ball-mounts — can tilt, loosen, and otherwise provide poor quality scans. Learn more.
