3 min read

Good news for Matterport virtual tour creators: Insta360 RS 1-Inch 360 Edition can now be used as a Matterport camera! Compatibility is live from today on iOS, while the Android equivalent is coming soon.

Matterport is the world’s leading spatial data company, focused on digitizing and indexing the built world. Bringing spaces to life with 3D digital twins is a hugely useful resource for those working in real estate, 3D photography, retail, and more. Creating a high quality Matterport virtual tour can bring enormous benefits, from increased sales and occupancy rates for properties, to time and money saved on site visits, to name a few.

What makes RS 1-Inch 360 the Best 360 Camera for Matterport Virtual Tours?

Image Quality

To make the best impression on your customers or clients, or to be of maximum use to your employees, you want your 3D space to be as detailed and realistic as possible.

RS 1-Inch 360 can shoot 6K 360° video, as well as 21 megapixel 360 photos. Dual 1-inch CMOS sensors provide top-level imaging and dynamic range, making the camera fantastic at picking out the details of a space, even in low or poor lighting. Another advantage is the option to shoot RAW images, as well as two automatic HDR modes which can also be shot using a RAW file format.

All this puts RS 1-Inch 360 head and shoulders above other 360 cameras around the same size and price.

      I made a comparison between Matterport Pro2 and the insta360 One RS 1-inch on my channel on youtube of angle X.

      The 1-inch is fine an a help in sunlight outside, but without lidar it´s a bit hard for the cam to get all details in the dollhouse – what the Pro2 manages better. But the warm colors of the images inside are quite good and the cam is much cheaper as the Pro2. If you have standard items like chairs, beds, boards, etc. it will handle it quite good!

          Today I tried to capture virtual tour – Matterport app did not work with my 1inch camera. Error – 360 Mod Not Installed

    I have a problem with my Insta360 RS 1 Inch and Matterport. With iOS version 5.8, it worked perfectly.
    The camera was recognized as “Unknown Insta360” but it worked fine.

    But since 5.9.1 (and now 5.10), all renderings of Matterport virtual tours are overexposed, unusable for commercial purposes.

    Matterport support tells me it’s still in beta with them.

    Are there other users having the problem?
    Thank you all.

    With the latest IOS update 5.14 Apr 3, 2023 Matterport finally added full support for the Ricoh Theta X and Insta360 One RS, One RS 1 inch, and X3 360 cameras.

    When is insta360 RS 1inch compatibility coming for android ?
    I was told it’s actually compatible and went ahead and purchased it. It connected fine but my tour was a mess. It was a disaster.
