This gives users a fourth alternative choice to Matterport’s very own Pro2 Professional 3D Camera, which produces high quality 360 shots but falls short on portability and price — it’s currently asking for around $3,000.
Better yet, Insta360 is offering its One R Virtual Tour Kit — selfie stick, tripod mount and a 32GB microSD card included — at a reduced price of $440 until September 17th.
Following the Insta360 One X, Ricoh Theta V and Ricoh Theta Z1 integrations last year, Matterport has now added the newer Insta360 One R camera to the beta release of its Capture app, with full integration due in October.
Matterport even claims that its platform helped create more than twice as many 360-degree virtual tours weekly between early March and mid-August, and it’s hoping to continue this momentum by expanding its list of compatible 360 cameras.
This also comes with a two-month free trial of Matterport’s Starter Plan (which is $10 per month), so you’ll be able to start capturing spaces and getting them stitched together on the cloud right away.
If all goes well, you’ll end up with a virtual tour like the one shown above — also captured with a One R — which can be seen through a VR headset as well for a more immersive experience.
