Yes, owning a Matterport will make you look and feel professional, but for a cost. Yeah, just a cool $3,395. And that is without accessories or their subscription service, both of which you need and in the case of the subscription, must, purchase.
If you plan to build up a high-end virtual tour business for luxury or commercial clients, this is likely where you will end up. But even then, make sure you have the business before you make the investment because this isn’t like your other expensive cameras…
No, unlike any other professional camera you’ve ever owned, this one is going to cost you an additional $69 per month subscription just to use it. Oh, and it goes even higher once you exceed 25 active spaces.
Once you get past the sticker shock and are really really sure you have the order volume and true need… this is one heck of a camera! Nothing, not even the Z1, comes close to the image quality you can get from Matterport. But once you sip the juice, it’s hard to escape the fees.
