Which cameras are being used?

Very early days of us looking at Cupix, but was wondering if anyone else is using an iStar Fusion?


It seems like overkill just for virtual tours, but we have one anyway for colouring our laser scan pointclouds. We don't really want to have to buy new kit if what we already have will work.

  • Hello Simeon Herrod,


    Thanks for stopping by and trying out Cupix solution. Regarding your question, you can use any type of devices as long as it can produce a 360° photo like below.

    As you can see, the format has to be equirectangular with a width-height ratio of 2:1. And FYI, a dual fish-eyed photo(see below) is not supported, so please convert them into an equirectangular format.
