InsideMaps: Shot with iPhone 12 Pro LiDAR (Beta): Dollhouse and Matterport-Like Walkthrough Transitions
Here is my Inside Maps 3D Tour test shoot with my iPhone 12 Pro using its built-in LiDAR. (Using the iPhone 12 Pro LiDAR feature is in public beta.) I also ordered from InsideMaps a video and 2D schematic floor plans created from the InsideMaps 3D Tour above.
I shot this InsideMaps tour like I would Matterport; every scan every 5-7 feet.
✓ 3D Dollhouse (InsideMaps calls this Birds-Eye-View)
✓ Walkthrough transitions like Matterport: not fade in/out between 360s
✓ Interactive Floor Plan (2D schematic floor plans can be ordered)
✓ Highlights Reel (walk around by selecting a thumbnail)
✓ Branding opportunity (See We Get Around logo)
✓ 2D schematic floor plans ordered (Optional Extra Add On)
✓ Single Property Website included: add photos, video, map, 2D schematic floor plans (video is an Optional Extra Add On); while I could have done the snapshots myself at no charge, I did the Optional Extra Add On of Curated Photo Gallery) (below). For clarification, the snapshots are from the 360 spherical images that my iPhone 12 Pro shot automatically using the InsideMaps HERO Rotator.
You can shoot InsideMaps with:
1. iPhone X/11/12 power the FREE 3D Tour creation paired with an InsideMaps HERO Rotator ($199) + InsideMaps iOS App
2. iPhone 12 Pro LiDAR (beta) + InsideMaps iOS App (as I shot above)
3. Ricoh Theta Z1 or Ricoh Theta V
Are a professional real estate photographer that wants to offer virtual tours as an Add On?
Are you researching 3D virtual tour platforms that offer a Matterport-like experience without the investment in a proprietary camera and platform and can be shot and produced much faster with an iPhone X or later paired with a $200 rotator? And, a real unlimited free plan with a super-affordable nicely loaded $29 unlimited plan with some optional extras (like floor plans, blue-sky/green grass (and more) image editing and curated snapshots)?
Add InsideMaps to your short-list of 3D virtual tour platforms to research and take for a spin.
