Camera selection


I need your suggestion which camera is suitable for indoor and outdoor terrestrial photogrammetry and what camera model can be used for underwater mapping.

Thanks in advance.



Hi Ivan,

In general, for indoor mapping, we recommend cameras with a wide field of view (fisheye cameras). Here you can see 2 related Community posts, where other users share their opinion and knowledge:

For outdoor terrestrial mapping, any good commercial camera with > 12 MP should give you good results. See some recommendations here: Configuring the Camera Settings

I hope it helps :slight_smile:
